  1. Rugby: Six Nations Championship on TV in Germany

    It's that time of year again. Am I right in thinking there are no free TV options this year?
  2. Astronomy observations - let's get together

    Personally I would not increase my budget from 100€ to 200-300€ until my child showed that they have a real interest. There are loads of brand new telescopes available for beginners which will be easy for a child to use with a steady helping hand from a parent. If you buy a cheap telescope, new, and it turns out to have major flaws then you can always return it. https://www.amazon.de/Astronomisches-Einsteiger-Amateur-Astronomen-Smartphone-Mondfilter/dp/B01N9EIRCI/ref=sr_1_10?__mk_de_DE=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&dchild=1&keywords=teleskop&qid=1608120613&sr=8-10 This can be pointed at the moon or your neighbour's chimney pot and might just be simple enough to hold your daughter's interest. It even comes with a smartphone attachment so that you can show the target live on your phone which is a big benefit since children tend to shake the telescope so much with their eye on the eyepiece that they don't get a clear picture... This will allow you to more easily show her how to navigate with the telescope.
