Since the dawn of human existence, our ancestors have been looking to the stars. In 1608, Galileo ushered in the birth of modern astronomy when he improved upon designs for a rudimentary telescope and began searching the skies, proving that the planets in our solar system moved around the sun, and not around the earth. His telescopio, about three feet long, could magnify objects up to 8 times. Today, we’re offering an incredible telescope — much smaller in size — that can magnify between 20 and 80 times.
The M-tel 50 refractor telescope from Carson® Optical is lightweight, sturdy, and extremely easy to operate. With a power range of 20x-80x and a focal length of 350mm, you’ll be able to zoom in on the craters of the moon — and you might even spy the rings of Saturn or the moons of Jupiter. The telescope comes with three distinct eyepiece lenses to provide clear and precise stellar observation, and an adjustable tabletop tripod insures steady viewing. The M-tel 50 is perfect for the astronomer just starting their journey to the stars. Ad astra!
