Well this if the one I went for, after researching telescopes for beginners that are pretty good too.
Celestron 31051 Astromaster 130EQ-MD Motor Drive Reflector Telescope
It does look really cool doesn't it! Even better in real life haha. It looked a bit complicated to set up and the instructions were actually needed and used!
Unfortunately for a whole week the moon was out of view, I was so disappointed as that was what I most wanted to see. When it did come round it really was worth waiting for. I even managed to get a few photos just using my mobile phone up against the eye piece.
Another amazingly cool thing was that we actually saw Saturn, rings and all! Sadly I didn't manage to get a photo this time. We have just got another lens at a higher magnification so looking forward to the next clear sky to try that out.
Without swagbucks there is no way I could have afforded to buy this great present :)
