Good price for a started but I don't think a 76mm is going to show you alot of nebulae...

Kids will probably be bored after they have seen the moon anyway! I used to do a lot as a kid but times have changed, maybe i will upgrade for myself by Xmas next year !!

Same sort of price elsewhere so not sure how "hot" this is.

With the %5 Topcash this is slightly cheaper, every little helps :)

This has an Altazimuth mount which makes it useless for any astronomical purposes. For astronomy you need an equatorial mount. Altazimuth mounts are designed for terrestrial use. Also, you need at least a six inch scope for astronomy, this will show very little. I haven't voted on this, just making a comment as an ex astronomer.

Thanks for the info, i used to use one half of a pair of binoculars, to be followed by a tasco telescope, when i was young! For the kids this will be good enough, ifi get my interest, (and time), back i will bearin mind what you have said.:thumbsup:
