Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok product We are studying 3rd grade astronomy and wanted to build a simple telescope since we're studying Galileo. It does show the simple lenses, but seeing anything through them is very difficult and it must be very bright out. The front lense and cap do not fit the tube very well and falls off- must use tape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase, easy to build, may be somewhat too easy. It lacks an eye piece extension needed to view the image, hard for young hands to hold and keep the right distance from the eye. some suggestion as to a holder to keep it steady.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what was expected Very basic and not very useful as a telescope. Easy to build and you do learn how a refractor telescope works. The quality of the lenses is not very good. Hard to see anything out of it.
