Been looking round for a telescope and noticed this went hot for £53.99 before Xmas. No idea if its any good but seems cheap enough for a beginner or just want to find out if it's something you're interested in.

There's a much older thread about this, when it was £33.99 which may help you make up your mind hotukdeals.com/dea…997

Thanks! I was about to buy it then I came back to the posting and seen your comment
I was curious about it as I bought boyf a Praktica Spotting Scope a few years ago and wondered if it was an upgrade
Anyone could recommend a decent telescope
Is a telescope worth it these days? Too much light pollution and constant terrible weather. Can't remember the last time I saw a sky full of stars. I suppose it depends where you live.
First in with binoculars! A pair of 10x50 or 15x70 is probably a more useful buy. Easily get some for less than £100 (whihc is I admit more than £39.99!) Plenty of material on the internet to support this.

Agreed. Last time I saw a proper sky full of stars was about 40 years ago. I tried a few weeks ago in West Norfolk which together with North Norfolk is known for dark skies but I was still hugely disappointed with what I could see. However a telescope is still better than the naked eye. Must get my telescope fixed.

In Glasgow city centre I see the moon shining down on me pretty regularly (though I don't have many buildings obscuring my view). Suppose you need to get up to the Highlands - boyf says he can see all sorts of activity in the night sky

Yes I too can see the moon whenever it is visible but I was referring to a sky full of twinkling stars and constellations and planets etc. To see it properly is just so incredible but it is this that is so rare now.
