Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended for Your Budding Scientist The EI-5351 Nancy B's Science Club™ MoonScope™ and Sky Gazer's Activity Journal is a child astronomer's delight. It can be used during both the day and the night (and even for bird watching). It gets kids excited about astronomy and the universe and encourages interest in the sciences. It is easily assembled and durable. It has two lenses for distance and up-close viewing. The activity journal was also worthwhile, as it allows kids to engage in fun activities, draw examples of what they view (e.g., phases of the moon), and fun myths and facts about the moon. It is a great educational activity and is highly recommended for both boys and girls ages 8-12.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Look, it's so clear" This is a great way to introduce skygazing to your kids. It was easy to set up, even with just a casual glance at the instructions. There is a nice video to watch that does a great job explaining the operation to parents and kids. We set it up during the day to get acquainted with the lenses and focused on trees, then again at night to look at the moon with both lenses. The set up was a little easier once we brought out a small table to set the moonscope on. The icing on the cake is the Activity Journal, that is really well thought out with multiple modes to explore science, e.g. storytelling, drawing, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Telescope My 6yo had been begging for a telescope since his teacher mentioned the word astronomy and taught the class about ancient stargazers. Luckily, we were chosen to review this telescope and my son got straight to work trying to predict the future from the stars. Out of the box he was able to assemble all the pieces and figure out all the attachments with just a bit of reading help from his older siblings. As recommended in the instruction guide, it was distorted through the window so we decided to save it for a clear night outdoors. The legs fold flat for travel so he stored it in a little drawstring backpack until he had a chance to use it outdoors. My kids were able to see the moon and some stars although in the city with all the tall buildings it was kind of hard to see much. The activity journal comes with some suggested activities so we did look at some buildings and trees and tried different eyepieces. My son also enjoyed looking at the phases of the moon even though we didn't always have a chance to use it outdoors during all the phases. We forgot the telescope when we went camping but my son was able to try a real telescope and was really impressed by what he saw. This telescope is more of a toy and an introduction to telescopes. It currently has found a place in our toybox more for pretend play.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent toy My 7 year old son loves science and living in Arizona we are lucky enough to have many clear nights to look at the moon and stars. He was so excited to get this moonscope. He goes out on our patio in the evenings and looks at the moon and stars. He just loves it. Then he draws pictures and writes about what he sees in the journal that comes with it. It's so neat to see his mind engaging and all the learning he is doing. Plus the joy it brings him. His teacher has already made comment that he is telling stories in school about what he saw. I would absolutely recommend this toy
