    Our 50mm Field Telescope is a great beginning scope that’s easy to transport outdoors to take advantage of clear night time viewing conditions. With 23–62X magnification, you’ll be able to focus in on signifcant astronomical features, like the craters and seas of Earth’s moon, Jupiter’s four moons, and Saturn’s rings.
