You May Also Like

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 significant astronomical features, like the craters and seas of Earth’s moon, Jupiter’s four moons, and Saturn’s rings. The 26mm and 7.9mm Plössl eyepiece offers a 52° field of view. An achromatic refractor eliminates the colored “auras,” or chromatic aberration, around objects that can occur with cheaper lenses.


Includes a sturdy tripod, smooth movement, and a red dot viewfinder—a pointing tool that simply superimposes a red dot where the telescope is pointing to help you pinpoint an object.


46" long; Tripod is 30"X30"( extends to a dimension of 30" across); 46"H maximum tripod height. 3.5 lbs.

        Comments about National Geographic 50mm Field Telescope:

        This beautiful telescope was a birthday present for my grandson. It was quickly and easily asssembled and utilitzed. He was thrilled to not only look at the moon but the magnification was so that he could see boulders within craters! He was extremely excited (as was his father) who has now spent quite a bit of time looking up!
