Kids GeoSafari Vega 600 Telescope Review
My daughter is always asking me about the stars and the planets and constellations. That was an area that was never my strong suit. Very often I have to tell her, I don’t know. When I saw this GeoSafari® Vega 600 Telescope, I thought this would be the perfect tool to help us both learn more about astronomy together! Both and my son and my daughter were thrilled when I let them know that I had ordered a telescope for kids. My daughter immediately unpacked and assembled it. She was able to assemble almost the whole telescope without my help so you can tell that assembly is not too difficult. I had to correct a few things when I looked at the manual, but she had it almost entirely right. This telescope for kids is very lightweight so it is easy to carry inside and outside.
“With magnifications from 30x to 150x and rack and pinion focusing, stargazers and naturalists are rewarded with bright, clear images -perfect for scoping out birds and animals, as well as the moon, planets, and constellations…High-quality features and components include: 50mm achromatic objective lens, all-glass optics, two interchangeable eyepieces, optical finder scope, full-height, adjustable tripod, and image erector for viewing terrestrial subjects.”
My kids have enjoyed using this telescope for kids in the day time to spot animals that are far away. For example, they were able to spy on what was going on at the barn up the hill without leaving the patio at my mother’s house. The telescope is pretty easy to use and they have taken to it very well. We have also begun the night sky exploration and that is something that I look forward to continuing with them for a long time. The GeoSafari® Vega 600 Kids Telescope is high enough quality to get good results and yet durable enough to stand up reasonably well to being handled by kids.
