About This Item

Description

Wooden, folded-path, Keplerian telescope is used to view the sun, eclipses, transits and also to track sunspots as they appear, move and vanish. It uses a series of mirrors to project a bright 3-1/4 inch solar image onto a 5 inch white viewing screen through a powerful 62 millimeter diameter objective lens. Sunspotter is easily aligned to the sun in seconds, without the complication of telescopes, solar filters and tripods.
On April 8, 2024, the Moon will completely cover the Sun during an awe-inspiring Total Solar Eclipse. Observers within the path of totality will witness the Sun’s dazzling corona, observe the “diamond ring” effect, and see day turn to night.

Features

  • Sunspotter allows various observers to simultaneously see the sun's disk and instantly trace the changing positions of sunpots and compare them on a daily basis
  • Sunspotter is convenient, easy to set up, light-weight and fun to use
  • Kid-friendly instrument makes our closest star a safer subject of study by even the youngest students
