The course is intended for people aged seven years and older. Parents are encouraged to do this course with their kids. If you like astronomy and want to buy a telescope, I recommend you take this course if you don’t know when to see some of the brightest stars. This course is also great if you want to nurture an interest in astronomy. While the course teaches about 20 constellations, it gives you the method to learn the rest.
