Are you looking for a way to safely observe the Eclipse up-close with the whole family? This scope is so easy there’s no instructions. Pop open the tripod. Screw the telescope on the tripod. Attach the finder scope, insert eyepiece. Point. Look. That’s why we love recommending this telescope for kids and families, because it is a snap to put together and use. Compared with other beginner scopes, the tripod is superior to just about anything out there for portability and ease of assembly. Plus it is super light-weight. With great views of the sun, stars, and planets, you’ll have a blast. There are just 4 parts to this telescope and it goes together in minutes. But the 60mm is powerful enough to really have some fun observing the heavens. It’s great for looking at the eclipses, solar flares, sun spots, and the Moon – you’ll get a good look at the main craters and features of the lunar surface. For solar observing, the included high-quality film filter easily fits over the end of your scope and fastens with a thumbscrew. Observe the sun from behind the protection of this .002″ filter, which blocks 99.999% of sunlight and has an ND5 rating. You can add a lunar map to help identify specific locations. For nighttime observing, you should be able to pick up at least 4 of the main Jovian moons of Jupiter and possibly more. Rings of Saturn should be visible as well as binary stars (like the one in the Big Dipper) and star clusters.
