Please can someone recommend a telescope for a 7 yr old? I know that actually binoculars would be better but I have suggested this and a telescope is definitely what is wanted. Budget about £50-£60?

The Skywatcher Infinity or its big brother the Skywatcher Heritage are usually recommended, and both within your budget. Not just for children either, the Heritage is on my Christmas list this year grin

We have this one, my 7 year old ds loves it and it's perfect for looking at the moon and we've seen a few of the moons of Jupiter through it.

Thanks so much will look into those - don't want to spend that much going in 'blind' so to speak.
