If your 12yr old doesn't mind the weight, the 20x 80 would be fine. But the 15x70 should weight less and be a little easier to handle. However, I think both would require a tripod for optimal viewing. It is tough to keep these size binoculars steady when using hand-held. I love my 20x80, but I always use on a tripod.

This set of binoculars is pretty large and heavy however that buys you a lot of magnification and beautiful views of the night sky. I would highly recommend a tripod to set this pair of binoculars on and that would make it easy for a12 year old to use. I love my binoculars and I would definitely go with a larger set.
