DS (nearly 7) has gone science-mad this year and decided that he would like a telescope and/or microscope for Christmas or birthday. I have no knowledge of either:

Will he be able to use them at this age?

Re: telescopes, we live in a city - will he even be able to SEE anything through the light pollution?!

Are the cheaper ones (telescope and microscope) not worth having?


ps have also just posted on the Christmas thread.
