Description

 

Let your kids familiarize themselves with the too-often-unseen world around you! This refractor telescope and 1200x microscope set will open their eyes to the very large and distant objects in the heavens, as well as the very small and near objects that comprise the world we live in.

 

The included refractor telescope offers a user-friendly design and enough power to get acquainted with the night sky. A 2x Barlow lens, finderscope, and full-size tripod are included to help put stars and heavenly bodies in clear view. Since we also throw in a 35x land-viewing eyepiece, you'll still get plenty of use during daylight hours as you observe landscapes, nature, and more.

 

The microscope boasts a magnification power of up to 1200x, so you can get an up-close-and-personal view of just about anything you can place on a slide. Speaking of slides, you'll get some of those along with slide covers, dyes, and other essentials in the included 19-piece accessory kit.

 

At such an attractive price point, this affordable telescope and microscope package is a sound investment for kids curious about biology, astronomy, or science in general. A terrific way to give children a head start, or for curious minds of any age!

We bought this set for our 8 year old son who is getting interested in space and the planets. He loves his new telescope and he loves the microscope just as much! He and dad have already looked at several "gross" things and are loving every minute. We haven't got to spend much time with the telescope yet (just too cold at night) but what we have done has been fairly simple. My sone just has a little bit of a hard time focusing it himself. But overall we LOVE this product! (espcially for the price)

I bought this as a starter for my grandsons. The quality is not there but I new that when I bought it.If they catch on to astronomy,we'll get something better. They were excited to see the moon and Jupiter in this scope and I admit it wasn't too bad.Not bad for the money.As a starter,I would recommend it.
The microscope was kind of cool. Once again,for the money it was ok.The kids loved it and that was what I hoped for.

          The telescope looks like you would buy it a toy store. Not worth the price at ala.

          The microscope did not work. The light does not come on.
