Ask a Question

Hi

I bought my daughter (9) a telescope for Christmas as she is very into space etc. She's been desperately trying to spot some planets with no luck (the reviews on the telescope were great and states this is completely possible). I have told her I don't think the sky has been clear enough to spot anything yet but does anybody have any tips etc for her to spot something? Angles, nights, times.. anything?

Maybe search some astrology websites for their tips when using home telescopes 🙂

My husband has an app on his phone, it may be worth downloading it and then using the telescope to get a closer look
