best bet would be a second hand dobsonian telescope of say 8" you'll get a lot of joy out of it, yes its big... but in the world of astronomy aperture is everything. Second hand you can get them really decently cheap and you'll enjoy it for years, you will be able to see a million times more than a tiny refractor (which in essence is just a binocular)

As a starter, bought a shitty national geographic telescope for my spawn. I will see how it goes with that (I expect it to be dropped within 3 days) and if the interest remains will buy a bigger one for myself and him.

Thanks chaps. I thought I understood cameras (SLR, etc) - while some if it applies for this domain - it's a whole new beast. Haha
