How to have fun with a telescope? Well it's really easy. Once set up the astronomical telescope will give hours of fun. They are easy to use and give a close up of the night sky. Planets are closer, stars can be seen close up, the moon's craters can be seen and if you have a map of the night sky, then you can find out what you are looking at. It is really easy to look at the night sky wherever you live, but if you have less light pollution, you will see more in the sky. A portable telescope means that you can take it anywhere in the world and get a different view of the sky at night from whichever hemisphere you happen to be looking. The night sky in the southern hemisphere is different from the night sky in the northern hemisphere, so it is good to get different views of the night sky.
