The National Geographic Lens Telescope 50/600 is suitable for a beginning astronomer. Thanks to the 600mm focal length, the telescope is well suited for looking at the moon or other planets. You can use the 3 eyepieces to zoom in farther on your subject, allowing you to see details, such as craters. The 5x24 viewfinder helps you find the right celestial bodies, before you closely look at them with the telescope. On the included star chart, you can easily find in which direction to turn the telescope for the most beautiful observations.
