This is a great telescope
This telescope is either floor standing or table top, ideal for my father. Just perfect for him watching the ships on the sea, from his house.
We brought this for my partners 9 year olds birthday and it was superb value for money really good quality and easy to use. I would strongly recommend it
Easy to set up and came with very clear instructions. Came with a load of guides too
I would suggest checking out the reviews on popular viudeo streaming sites, and perhaps asking at his school ( a science teacher may be able to offer an opinion
One thing in favour of the Celestron PS70/700 Refractor Telescope is that it is supplied with the The SkyX planetarium software, which has a 10,000 object database - making it ideal for both the budding beginner and the practised astronomer

It has a good optical quality and you can observe the moon in detail. Planets however require a very high magnification and a precise aiming as they are arc seconds in size. This is where the package let's you down.. the tripod is the weak point as its meant for compact cameras and can't balance the telescope or point it with any accuracy. There are better options available for not a lot more money.

The included eyepieces work very well in providing clear, crisp views of smaller objects. You’ll find it easy to get good looks at the details of the moon and you can even see the crevasses of the moons of Jupiter. Suited for beginning astronomers.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for using Argos Q and A.

This is not recommended as the tripod and mount on this model are not designed to support an additional weight such as a smartphone.
I hope this helps.
