Please recommend a good telescope for my 7 1/2 year old.

We'd like to get a good telescope for our son for Christmas. There are so many to choose from. Does anyone have a tried & true one?
Thanks!

  • I haven't gotten one yet, but I have a few sites to help you find what you need. First, you need a decent idea of what you would like to see/show him through the telescope. Check these sites out as a good starting point. Good luck!! YAY YOU FOR HELPING YOUR KID LOVE SCIENCE!!!!
