Build Your Own Paper Telescope Kit

Regular price £25.00 Sale

An eco-friendly, telescope that children will have great fun building themselves!

Kids will learn how a telescope works as they  construct and understand more about light, reflection, construction and engineering!  Once completed they will have a fully functioning refractor telescope!

Children will be engaged, hands-on and way from electronic devices whilst gaining new knowledge and skills.

Inside the very small box is everything you'll need. 29 slot together cardboard parts, magnification lens, eyepiece lens, mirror and easy-to-follow instruction leaflet.  No glue or tape is required.

The telescope has a 16x magnification lens, integrated spotting sight to line up your telescope, an eyepiece lens and a sliding focus tube, which extends to 72cm long.

Both lenses also have a cover, and there's a toothed stand.  A degree finder is on the side, so that you can easily angle your telescope and won't need to hold it in position. 

Ideal for younger night sky watchers starting a new hobby.
