You are Galileo! Telescope

We provide two telescope kits with slightly different specifications. Both have good and proven optical quality, and have been in wide use for years in Japan.


You cannot view the Sun with a telescope, even during an eclipse. You will damage your eyes and go easily blind.

Purchase of the You are Galileo! Telescope

This is a popular small and easy-to-assemble kit. Its low power makes it easy for children to use with little or no support, so it's well suited for younger children.
The Moon is obviously the best object for children to observe. Venus, Galileo satellites, some nebulae, star clusters and double stars can also be enjoyed.

Also has been quite successful for years in Japan and internationally.
35-power magnification allows children and other people to enjoy Saturn's rings (unfortunately the ring is closed in 2009, though) and many other objects including the surfaces of planets.
