Telescope Tripod Extras
All kids have their own little quirks. Everyone knows a kid who refuses to play with anything except cars, trains or sticks, stones and marbles!
And let's not forget the adorable little girls who frown upon childlike dolls, frills and toys. If you're looking for ways to broaden your kids' range of interest while giving them a toy they will love, you're going to have to bring out the special stuff.

5. Revell 1:48 B17G Flying Fortress: The Mechanic

Help with telescope needed?
The body of the telescope is constructed of sturdy metal and there are 2 lens, a 6mm 60 x lens and a 20mm 18x lens. A 1.5 magnifier extension is included that converts the 6mm lens to 90x and the 20mm lens to 27x. Comes with a table-top tripod stand with altitude and azimuth mounting. A lens cover for the telescope and plastic containers for the extra lenses are also included.
What can I see with this telescope and how should I arrange the pieces?
How to use it question is more important for me, as first I want to learn things on this telescope and than try a better telescope.
For sky gazing, that scope is almost useless. You might be able to spy on a neighbor or see boats in a harbor with it. Perhaps a view of the moon is possible, but it will be frustrating. Use the 20mm lens alone, then perhaps the 20mm with the 1.5x tube in front of it. The 6mm one is not recommended for much.
Join a local astronomy club and view through actual astronomy telescopes. Get good information. http://www.skyandtelescope.com has a search function for finding clubs nearby.
