Someone gave my husband a Bushnell Deep Space 78-9512 telescope. We have no idea of the value of this item. Can anyone please give us an approximate value? It looks new and has accessories in a little net bag.
Thank you, in advance, for any help you can give us.
You can but them new for a bit less than $100. Used, they will bring about $50 if you have all the accessories.
From my research, it seems this particular telescope would be more appropriate for a child or a "beginner". Is that a correct assessment on my part? I just wouldn't want to frustrate the person with something that is too basic and that is why I ask.
Thank you, again!
Glad to help.
Yes, 60 mm refractors are beginner's telescopes and, because of their small size, quite limited in what they can see. They are best used for viewing the moon and you will be able to see the rings on Saturn, though image size will be necessarily small, because the small size doesn't handle high magnifications well. That said, a lot of us did start with the ubiquitous 60 mm refractor and survived the experience.
