Great sentiments. One little comment – Sears-level tube telescopes are shaky, which is why few people use them after a few days, because of the headaches, or the inability to stay steady on one spot in the sky for a few seconds. If you really want to introduce a child to astronomy, spend the extra money to get a good scope from a company like Celestron. And be prepared to stay outside with your child to share the experience, because otherwise it’s going to feel like you’re using it as an excuse to get them out of the house so you can watch more TV.
