The Galileoscope (galileoscope.org) is a large-high quality telescope and optics kit developed by astronomers, optical engineers, and science educators. Since it is produced and distributed by volunteers, it is obtainable at minimal cost to assistance science training worldwide. Some 250,000 kits are currently in use in more than a hundred countries. The Galileoscope is a 50-mm aperture, 500-mm focal length refractor and contains a 20-mm Plössl eyepiece (25x) and a 2x Barlow (50x), making it achievable to see craters on the Moon, the phases of Venus, Jupiter’s belts and moons, and Saturn’s rings, amid many other astronomical wonders. Anyone can find out how a telescope functions whilst constructing a Galileoscope, which is easy to assemble without having equipment or adhesives. The kits are augmented with free standards-based mostly educational components and are suitable for people of all ages.
Rainbow Symphony’s solar filters are produced from black polymer licensed to meet the ISO 12312-2 international safety normal for direct observation of the Sun. When placed in excess of the front finish of the Galileoscope, the filter creates a safe and comfortably vibrant yellow-orange picture of the Sun in the eyepiece. For the duration of the partial phases of the August 21st solar eclipse across America (eclipse.aas.org), the securely filtered Galileoscope will reveal the Sun with a “bite” taken out of it by the Moon. Galileoscope customers will be ready to view the Moon move across the Sun for the whole duration of the eclipse. Anyone inside of the 70-mile-broad path of the Moon’s dark shadow, which stretches coast to coast from Oregon to South Carolina, will also experience a total solar eclipse lasting up to 2 minutes forty seconds. When the Moon completely blocks the Sun’s vivid face and the sky turns dark as deep twilight, it is protected to seem at the Sun with no a filter to see the magnificent solar corona ringing the jet-black silhouette of the new Moon, possibly the most amazing sight in all of nature. As soon as the Moon begins to uncover the dazzling solar disk yet again, it truly is time to use solar filters to watch the rest of the partial eclipse.
Stock of Galileoscope kits with solar filters is accessible now, and delivery instances are one particular to two weeks inside the USA. For far more data about how to purchase, check out galileoscope.org/
