This item is not limited to night time use. There are no specific age limits to using Telescopes but we would recommend age 5 and above and always insist on adult supervision.

Would my grandson be able to see detailed images of the moon and any other planets in the solar system with this telescope?

This would allow you to see the moon but not in any great details the one in the link below would be much better. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/celestron-astromaster-130eq-reflector-a05na
