Take a child on a journey to the beginning of space and time

Astronomy Products – Take your child into the dark places of the Earth and spend the night staring upward at the night sky they probably didn’t really know existed. This could be your opportunity to open up their mind to the real world and the possibilities of space and time, and turn interest into fascination. This is how astronomers are future game changers of the world and humanity are created. Celestron’s FirstScope will light the fire of discovery in your child’s mind and set them on a course that could lead to great moments in history.

Only $49.95, Celestron’s FirstScope is a 3-inch reflector with a standard 1 1/4 inch rack-and-pinion focuser, 20mm and 4mm eyepieces (which magnify 15x and 75x, respectively), and an amazing steady tabletop mount. Weighing just 4.5 pounds (2 kg), the FirstScope is light enough for your young ones to carry around safely, and sensitive enough to allow them to enjoy viewing the Moon, bright planets, and dozens of deep sky objects. The FirstScope also has the option of a separate accessory kit, which includes a finder scope, two eyepieces, a Moon filter and CD-ROM planetarium program, all for only $20.
