The Edmund Scientific Astroscan 4 1/8" Telescope comes in a basic package that includes the telescope, an open sight target finger, a cast-aluminum tabletop base that's padded to prevent scratches on sensitive surfaces, a user's manual, an eyepiece and a carrying bag. The Astroscan has a three degree angle of view at 16X and makes a great beginners scope requiring virtually no setup. It is very light-weight and perfect for small children.
