My kids are old enough to be interested in astronomy, I lost my telescope during katrina. I am looking for a decent deal on a decent setup. Thanks!

Though I don't own either of them, there are two "tabletop" scopes out right now which can be used by children and pragmatic adults.

The Firstscope is a 76mm reflector...

The Funscope is also a 76mm reflector...

Both are lightweight, reasonably-priced and easy to store.
