Reach for the stars…there’s so much to see!
The night sky is bursting with constellations, planets, moons, stars, satellites and even the odd comet shooting by… it’s truly spectacular!
This robust children’s telescope is the ideal introduction for developing a lifelong interest in astronomy. Its simple-to-use refractor design with a 50mm objective lens allows plenty of light to be collected,
making it easier to see the far away detail of the brightly lit moon or luminous star clusters. With the 20mm or 4mm eyepieces, you’ll be able to see these celestial objects, and more, with 18X or an impressive 90X magnification! It’s highly versatile, and is ideal for travelling, camping and other stargazing opportunities where a compact, easy to use telescope is needed.
The table-top tripod and altazimuth mount are useful aids to observing the wonders of the night sky, wherever you are.

The Astronomical telescope inspires children to learn about space and the stars, using the different lenses to focus on objects far away it encourages children to ask questions and develop their understanding of the world as well as practicing their speech language and communication skills.

Our testers loved using this telescope at night time and during the day, where they used it to look for birds in their nests.
This telescope is perfect to develop children’s STEM learning as they discuss what they can see through the telescope, some parental help may be needed in focusing the lens but the telescope is a great activity to teach perseverance, patience and concentration to children.
