Kids Telescopes

What to look for with Kids Telescopes:

- Aperture: Aperture is one of the most important features of a telescope. The higher the aperture, the more light gets captured to let you see images bigger and better. 

- Type of Telescope: Kids Telescopes are usually either a reflector or a refractor. A Reflector gives you the most amount of detail for your dollar. They tend to have larger apertures than refractors. A Refractor is the most hassle-free type of telescope. They are what most people think telescopes should look like with their long thin tubes. 

- Size: Bigger is always better! BUT if you intend to travel with this telescope, make sure that it is easy enough to carry from place to place. Be mindful that some telescopes will look heavier than they weigh.
