The Explore Scientific children’s telescope allows you to obtain impressive close-up views of celestial bodies. Featuring an aperture of 70 mm and a focal length of 400 mm, the refracting telescope, also known as lens telescope offers the ideal introduction into the world of astronomy.
You don’t have to worry about finding objects yourself – the augmented reality app will guide you through the night sky. After setting up the AR app, simply attach your smartphone the smartphone adapter on the children’s telescope. In AR mode, your smartphone will display the names and images of the constellations at which your telescope is currently pointing, allowing you to navigate easily between planets and constellations and discover interesting objects. With the augmented reality photo function, you can take a few snapshots before taking a proper look through the eyepiece.
The app also has lots of images, audio and text – go to the constellation encyclopedia to read about the Greek gods after which the constellations are named, or read the solar system encyclopedia to find out more about the planets that travel around the sun together with the earth. After making your first discoveries with the children’s telescope, you can take a quiz to test your knowledge of the constellations. Learning has never been such fun!
