A whole class can now observe and follow the storms that play havoc with our tiny globe! Sunspotter™ gives students the opportunity to track sunspots as they appear, move, and vanish. A bright 3 in. solar image is projected in all of its glory by a powerful 62mm dia. objective lens. Students can easily trace the face of the sun and compare it from hour to hour and day to day. Easily aligned to the sun in seconds, the Sunspotter™ makes our closest star a subject of study by even the youngest students, without the complication of telescopes, solar filters, and tripods. This unique, wooden, folded-Keplerian telescope provides a much safer and convenient way to view the brilliant light of the sun compared to more common methods. By using a series of mirrors, the device projects an image of the sun onto a white viewing screen. Elementary level and up. Allow extra delivery time.
