The Lunar Scope is perfect for all those amateur astronomers out there with a specific interest in outer space. Lunar Scope offers some of the greatest views of Earth’s close neighbour, the moon, along with the rest of the night sky. With the included detailed map of the moon you’ll be reciting the different names of craters and mountains of our moon like the ABC’s.
Telescopes work via light entering into the main channel, bouncing off of the parabolic mirror within and then becoming focussed onto a secondary mirror, which in turn reflects the image onto the eyepiece. This particular design allows the Lunar Scope to gather an ample amount of light which allows for the viewer to observe fainter objects in space. The Lunar Scope is smaller than the Mars Scope which offers more mobility with its compact design. The portable structure with generous optical performance (15x – 75x magnification), allows for the scope to be easily transported and stored making it the perfect piece for some night-time stargazing.
