  • Description

    The Vixen Space Eye 50 is the ideal grab-and-go telescope for kids and families

    Enjoy quality time under the stars with your family and the Vixen Space Eye 50 refractor telescope. This simple, lightweight, and easy-to-use telescope was built with kids in mind. Young astronomers are sure to enjoy amazing views of craters on the Moon, the rings around Saturn, Jupiter’s Galilean moons, double stars, and the Orion Nebula.

    Includes two eyepieces and a 5x finderscope

    Locating objects in the night sky is easy with the Vixen Space Eye thanks to the included 5x optical finderscope. Simply center the object in the finderscope and it’s ready to view. Choose from the low power 20mm eyepiece or bump up the magnification with the 4mm eyepiece. As your target appears to drift across the night sky, track it seamlessly with the telescope mount’s built-in slow motion controls.

    Use day and night for celestial and terrestrial views

    Despite its name, the Vixen Space Eye 50 telescope is great for observing more than just outer space. Its refractor design offers correct image optics so you and your family can also enjoy daytime terrestrial viewing of birds, wildlife, boats on the water, and more.

    The entire telescope kit—including the full height tripod—weighs just 6 pounds and sets up in minutes. What will your child discover with the award-winning Vixen Space Eye 50?


    Note: This item is not intended for use by children under 12 years of age without adult supervision.
