A fun telescope indeed! You'll enjoy hours of stellar exploration with this amazing little tabletop reflector telescope. Designed specifically with first-time telescope buyers in mind, the FunScope is a great way to "test the waters" of stargazing - affordably!

But what can you see with it? The FunScope is no toy, it's a real reflecting telescope with a 76mm (3") diameter polished spherical mirror which allows you to capture 60% more light than a typical 60mm beginner's telescope. More light gathered means the FunScope will provide views of the cosmos that are brighter and clearer than views in smaller diameter telescopes. With the FunScope reflector telescope, the whole family can observe the Moon, Saturn's rings, as well as Jupiter and its four brightest moons, all under light-polluted skies. Under dark skies, even star clusters, emission nebulas and some of the brighter galaxies are not beyond reach.

The FunScope reflector telescope comes equipped with a "red dot" reflex sight, smooth adjusting rack-and-pinion focuser, and two quality 1.25" telescope eyepieces: 20mm (which provides 15x power magnification) and 10mm (for higher power views with 30x power magnification).  You can easily locate and observe objects in the night sky with the accessories included, so you're ready for stargazing action right out of the box!

The FunScope's tabletop mount arrives pre-assembled in the box and provides a sturdy and compact foundation for the telescope with smooth motion in altitude (up and down) and azimuth (left and right) axes. If there isn't a table located where you want to use the pint-sized reflector telescope, the entire FunScope and mount itself can be mounted onto a tripod with a 3/8" or 1/4"-20 screw thanks to a built-in 3/8" tripod adapter and included 1/4"-20 threaded bushing. Tripods are sold separately.

Weighing just 4 lbs., the ultra-portable FunScope reflector telescope can go with you just about anywhere! It makes a great gift for anytime of the year, and is sure to get "oohs" and "aahs" once unwrapped.

Who knew so much fun for the whole family could come in such a small and affordable package? See for yourself and pick up a FunScope today!
