Astromedia The Galileo Telescope Construction Kit kit

£ 4.99

Curious Minds did you know: Galileo was sent to roman prison for his work with a telescope, as his results were said to support Copernicus' theory of heliocentrism which was claimed heretic by the Roman catholic church.

Galileo is famous for being the first man to point a telescope at the night sky. With this simple kit you can build yourself a telescope with an upright image like the one he used in the 17th century. Can you find the moons of Jupiter like he did?

When paired with our Small Solar Filter Film, the Galileo telescope can be used for observing sunspots during the day.

This kit is not pre-punched, the parts need cutting out with scissors or a craft-knife

The kit includes the OptiMedia lenses 1 and 9.

Size: 5 x 5 x 38 cm
