Product Description:

One thing I really like about this beginner telescope is that it comes with an Activity Journal that walks students through how to use their telescope and gives them guided observations rather than just simply letting them explore once or twice and then they are tired of it. The MoonScope itself features two all-glass eyepieces, a focusing knob, and a short tripod. It magnifies from 18x to 90x with the aid of the 4mm and 20mm eyepieces. It also contains a red LED light to read reference material in the dark. The 22-page Activity Journal covers how to use and focus the MoonScope, which eyepiece to use when, the phases of the moon, taking a lunar tour, reading (and writing your own) myths about the moon, viewing the moon during the day, how to find major features on the moon, and searching for Saturn and Jupiter. The Activity Journal contains tips and instructions as well as areas to record observations and answer questions. As part of the Nancy B. Science Club series, the journal and aqua-and-purple design of the MoonScope are targeted to girls, but useable by any young student. Jess

  • Category Description for Nancy B's Science Club Kits:

    Although designed especially to appeal to girls, we love these kits because they include tools for observation along with a guided journal that helps them to use the tool and apply it to their own investigations. The viewers are all a step up from just a toy, with decent-quality plastic optics (or glass, in the case of the telescope) and additional tools built in to aid in observations (like a compass on the binoculars and a ruler on the aquascope). Each viewer is also packaged with a full-color, 22-page activity journal, which helps kids use their tool for a variety of guided observations and activities.

    Doing moon gazing for science and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg for something I didn't know how to set up.

    Looks like a neat learning item at a great value for a 9 year old.

    I would not recommend this product. It's very difficult to see through.
