With the National Geographic 76/350 Compact Telescope, children discover the world of astronomy. Because the stargazer is a table model with a solid low mount, the telescope is less sensitive to hand vibrations. This makes it easy for children to look at celestial objects. The telescope comes with software that allows you to look up the locations of stars and planets in advance. Because of the maximum magnification of 18x you observe relatively nearby planets. For example, you can see the craters on the moon. The mirror in the telescope prevents lens errors so that observations look bright and colourfast.
