5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun and educational toy for my son!
Bought this telescope for my eldest son and was really pleased with the result. Recently bought another Discovery Channel toy (Metal detector) and have to say that both items have proved real value for money, in terms of play value. Again, like the Metal Detector, it's a toy and expectations, in my opinion, need to be realistic. i.e. we didn't expect to see remnants of...

1.0 out of 5 stars Unstable and unfocussed
This product cannot focus on anything apart from the moon, and that has shadows. When it comes near to seeing anything it has to be moved slightly and it is lost again. The tripod is unstable and extremely low. Very disappointed.

Bought this telescope for my eldest son and was really pleased with the result. Recently bought another Discovery Channel toy (Metal detector) and have to say that both items have proved real value for money, in terms of play value. Again, like the Metal Detector, it's a toy and expectations, in my opinion, need to be realistic. i.e. we didn't expect to see remnants of the American Flag whilst viewing the moon! However, my son loved the item, it proved functional, the instructions made it easy to use and there was some useful information in the manual as well. All in all, it did exactly what it said on the tin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product!, 28 Feb 2014

This review is from: Discovery Channel - 50mm Astronomical Telescope. (Toy)
Bought this for my 4 year old for Christmas as he has a huge interest in planets :)
Its pretty simple to use and easy to focus.
we saw the craters in the moon easily and even saw the side out line of mars!
I wasn't expect to be able to see as much as you can and as clearly for this price product!
Very Happy

Bought for my sons birthday but returned as when tested it wasn't working properly. When it was possible to focus on anything (and that was very difficult in itself) multiple images (ghosting) appeared making it impossible to see the object properly.
