The Galileoscope was created as a cornerstone project for the 2009 International Year of Astronomy, and it filled the void for a lack of high-quality, low-cost kits suitable for both optics education and celestial observation.  Since its inception, more than a quarter million Galileoscope kits have been distributed to educators, students, and astronomy enthusiasts worldwide. The Galileoscope is a high-quality educational telescope kit created by astronomers, optical engineers, and science educators.  Learn how telescopes work and experiment with lenses as each of the components are assembled (don't worry - it's an easy 5-minute assembly!). This kit includes detailed step-by-step instructions to guide you through the assembly.  You can also access a free tutorial provided by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific to build yours along with a knowledgeable instructor, which includes a number of expert tips and tricks! You'll get two telescopes in one - one very similar to what Galileo used and a more modern type, improving upon Galileo's 400-year-old design.  Both are suitable for learning optics and celestial observation - making it accessible to astronomy enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels. Special features:
  • Focuser: 1¼ barrel is compatible with standard commercial accessories, including eyepieces, Barlow lenses, and camera adapters.
  • Galilean Eyepiece: Get an authentic star-gazing experience with a magnification of 17x and a right-side-up field of view less than ½° wide.
  • 2x Barlow Lens: Increase the Galileoscope's magnification to 50x when used with the regular supplied eyepiece.
What you can see:
  • Mountains and craters on the Moon
  • Four moons circling Jupiter
  • More stars in the Pleiades and Beehive clusters than can be seen with the unaided eye
  • Saturn's rings
  • And much more!
Brand: Explore Scientific Note: Some assembly required.
