Answer:
It's about 25 to 30 pounds. The original box on mine was inside the brown amazon box with shipping paper around it. In the telescope MFG box the scope and tripod are inside separate brown boxes. The box is about 3 1/2 to 4 feet tall.

Answer:
Perhaps you should do some research into the different types of mount and reflector or main objective diameters, because your own informed judgement will always help you better to your final decision. But if you only want a glimpse then perhaps a pair of binoculars might be best

Answer:
True. The PowerSeeker is the better deal for what you get. The green (a limited edition sold only through Amazon) PowerSeeker 70 is $59.99. For that price you get three eyepieces and a 3X Barlow lens. The AstroMaster has only two eyepieces and no Barlow lens, but is built better. That is why you must debate quanti… see more True. The PowerSeeker is the better deal for what you get. The green (a limited edition sold only through Amazon) PowerSeeker 70 is $59.99. For that price you get three eyepieces and a 3X Barlow lens. The AstroMaster has only two eyepieces and no Barlow lens, but is built better. That is why you must debate quantity vs. quality. For the price, the price of a new video game, either is a good choice. As a comparison, two other reputable telescope companies sell their starting 70mm refractors at $79.95 (the Meade Infinity 70Az) and $109.99 (the Orion Observer 70mm) and neither price includes shipping. The reason I am researching these is that my daughter wants to get a telescope for me for Christmas. I do not want her to spend much and Celestron is a good company, so I have been wrestling between the PowerSeeker 70AZ and the AstroMaster 70AZ. For $50 or $60, you probably cannot go wrong. Good luck! see less

Answer:
If he/she is interested in it, then yes. My 5 year old liked looking at stars for about a month, but the novelty wore off. I still enjoy seeing Jupiter's moons and Saturn's ring. $79 may or may not be a lot of money depending on who you are, but for that amount you'll have a better quality telescope than Galileo.

Is it possible? Yes, it is possible to take pictures of the moon, and maybe some blurry but recognizable shots of Jupiter or Saturn. This much you can probably do with a bit of effort aiming a point-and-shoot or cellphone camera into the eyepiece and playing around until you get the spacing just right.

This much you can probably do with a bit of effort aiming a point-and-shoot or cellphone camera into the eyepiece and playing around until you get the spacing just right. There are brackets to make this a bit more repeatable, but it still isn't easy.
Some folks have uploaded example photos to the "product images" section here on Amazon. Note that many of these have been made using the neximage, which is a camera that goes in place of the eyepiece and works like a bit like webcam. That's another way, and makes it much easier, but it is a specialized device and webcam-type resolution.
Deep-space objects (nebulas, galaxies, etc) will be near impossible without significant upgrades.
It should be noted that in general taking pictures through a telescope is difficult. see less
