    Telescope for a 9 year old?
    From: Steve E. Bryant

    Dear NavListers,

    I have a 9 year old grandson for whom I would like to purchase a telescope. 

    With my limited childhood experience, I seem to prefer the refractors over reflectors when I was his age.  

    My parents bought me one that was just right for me.  I can't describe it much more than to say It was on a tripod about my height; I enjoyed looking at the moon with it and things at a distance during the day time (I'm not sure that I would have been able to see the rings of Saturn with it not knowing where to look) and it was a refraction telescope.  I'm pretty sure they did not pay a lot for it but I did enjoy it for a long time. 

    What would be a good one to buy today that would hold a young man's attention?

    Best regards,

    Steve E. Bryant
