Why you should not buy a cheap telescope

Buying a cheap ($10-$50) telescope can actually do more harm than good, ruining someone’s interest in astronomy and possibly even science in general.

In this video I show you a cheap department store telescope I purchased and detail why it is not worth the trip to the store, much less the money you pay for it.

In this video I am looking at the itek 50mm refractor as shown at this link: https://amzn.to/2RZykKX which I paid $20 for, and that was $25 too much (allotting $5 for gas and my time buying it).

This does NOT mean you have to spend a fortune, just a little more will get you a telescope that is actually usable. I personally recommend the Celestron Powerseeker 70az shown at this link https://amzn.to/2BekIpR as a first telescope for children. See my upcoming video review of the telescope for more information.
