    Both of these are terrible telescopes.

    The 75mm telescope might be consider worth (about) 50 euros... at best. And no astronomer would go out of their way to purchase it.

    The 60mm telescope is plain and simple.... a toy. A child's toy that will sort of *look* like a telescope. But a child that tries using it will be severely disappointed.

    A simple pair of 10x50 binoculars (considerably less expensive, and easier to 'learn') will be much better value - being built better, and actually being useful for astronomy.

    Get a subscription to a popular astronomy magazine as well, and you can learn to identify the constellations and planets, even just using your binoculars.
