This telescope by #Merkmak might be lightweight and made of plastic but the lenses are spot on. This is a great educational tool to help get your kids into the wonderful world of astronomy. This telescope comes with 3 different magnification eyepieces including the 360/50mm spotting scope. It also comes with a tabletop tripod. I have a full size tripod that it would fit on so if needed. Great way to lea egg n about the various stars and constellations, or you can spot various types of wild life like birds and owls in the trees. For $30.99 this is a terrific investment into a child's education.
