I bought the astro box as a present for my partner as I bought him a telescope for Christmas. Although we are not youngsters we like to do things properly and have started at the beginning. It makes an amazing present to go with a telescope as it's clear and easy to use. You also feel you have real value for money as it has lots in the box not just a book, charts etc. beautifully presented and well done. I got the idea for this by going to my local photography supplier, where it retailed for 19.99 so imagine my delight at finding it for this price at basically a third off. Considering the terrible weather and so on it was delivered wtihin a week too. Well done amazon and your stable of excellent retailers. Keep up the good work.

Still get a little tingle of excitement when I open this. One of those items that are packed with elements and features. Make astronomy that bit more richer.

Philip's Astro Box is just the thing for someone like myself, who is just getting into astronomy. The sky maps and charts are alone worth the purchase, but the accompaning book, with all the info on viewing, buying and assessing telescopes, just makes it a reai good buy.

The Philips's Astro-Box is an excellent starting point for beginners, the star chart, planisphere and monthly guide make finding stars etc. very easy and the telescope guide provides useful info for buying a telescope, all at a price less than buying the individual items.
