We see our junior telescopes as more than just “toys” or “teaching tools,” they are launching pads for a lifetime of exploration. By serving as gateways to our solar system and beyond, these instruments ignite a child’s natural curiosity and put them on a path to discovery. Designed to appeal to multiple skill levels, this line of telescopes ranges from beginning refractors that can easily reveal the Moon’s chiseled features to a 114mm reflector that can take your child on a journey into deep sky viewing to find awe-inspiring galaxies, nebulae and star clusters.
