FLO Says: Arguably the BEST <£100 telescope available! Low maintenance and easy to use so suitable for kids and the compact size makes it an excellent choice for taking on holiday. Requires a sturdy garden table to stand on but has a 3/8" thread in the base so can be fitted to a suitable photo tripod.

I initially bought this telescope for my 10yr old son, who had shown a great interest in space and the stars. After much research the Heritage 100 had some of the best reviews as a good place for beginners to start stargazing. We’ve only managed to use the telescope once or twice but it has amazed my son and myself each time, so much so that it has rekindled my own interest.
I’m sure I’ll be contacting FLO again in the very near future.
