Item #  27185

We now provide the popular FunScope Reflector bundled with a sturdy field tripod so you can have fun enjoying the night sky anywhere, even if there isn't a table nearby to set the telescope on!

The included field tripod is adjustable with a height range of 20" to 34.5" so you can position the FunScope reflector for comfortable views in the field. The tripod also features an extendable elevator column so observers of different heights can enjoy the view comfortably.

The FunScope Reflector Telescope and Tripod Bundle also includes a high-power 6.3mm eyepiece, which provides a powerful, 47.6x view in the 300mm focal length FunScope reflector telescope for high-magnification views of lunar crater details, bright planets, and more. You and your whole family will enjoy hours of stellar exploration with this amazing little telescope bundle. Designed specifically with first-time telescope buyers in mind, the FunScope and Tripod Bundle is a great way to "test the waters" of stargazing - affordably!

But what can you see with it? The FunScope features a 76mm polished spherical mirror, allowing you to capture 60% more light than a typical 60mm beginner's telescope. So you 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 and Tripod Bundle comes equipped with a "red dot" finder, smooth rack-and-pinion focuser, and three 1.25" eyepieces: 20mm (15x), 10mm (30x), and 6.3mm (47.6x). So you can easily locate and observe objects in the night sky.

The FunScope's table-top mount provides a sturdy and compact foundation for the telescope with smooth motion in altitude (up and down) and azimuth (left and right). Alternatively, the entire FunScope and mount itself can be mounted onto the included field tripod for more versatility.

Weighing just 6.85 lbs. including the field tripod, the ultra-portable FunScope and Tripod Bundle can go with you just about anywhere! It makes a great gift for anytime of the year, especially during the holiday season. Who knew so much fun could come in such a small package? See for yourself and pick up a FunScope and Tripod Bundle today!
