The lens system incorporates a 50mm objective lens with a focal length of 170mm and offers three switchable magnification modes of 20x, 30x and 40x.
Using the Tripod
The telescope is mounted on its tripod, enabling it to swivel a full 360º and be elevated to a height of 250mm. The lowest magnification provides the steadiest view and if you’re buying this telescope as a gift for your child, keep to the lower magnification until he or she learns to move it steadily before progressing to the higher magnifications.
An Affordable and Educational Gift
Priced at £10.99, this telescope makes an excellent and affordable gift that will provide an ideal introduction to the science of astronomy for younger children.
