I can't believe we are suggesting binoculars instead of telescopes, these must be truly awful if that's the case!
now the price got rise to 16£..
For every one kid that got a flimsy-tripod based little refractor and yet persevered despite how frustrating it was to point it, there are 10 that give up. Until perhaps 25-30 years ago, if you were on a budget you didn't have a choice, you couldn't avoid it. I was one of the minority who persevered (I got a 40mm "halleyscope", with a ridiculous "tripod" 30 years ago next month), yay for me, however in this day there is a choice. So, as I said before, for £12, I don't have to propose anything better (which is why I don't actually downvote this), and you are getting an interesting toy (it will work fine on the moon). If that's your budget go for it. It won't be a joy to use compared to other scopes that start at around ~£50 (although I usually give £100 as the starting point for new - but less for used), so you might turn some kids away. Your call ;)
Looks good and will be on Lightning Deal for £50.99 from 5:20pm on Tuesday 17 April
Thank you for taking the trouble to go into the detail you have. I think the bottom line for me would be a good pair of binoculars and possibly try to find some kind of tripod or stand for them, the bonus would be using them to spot wildlife close up.
