The Talking Tutor Telescope

This is the talking telescope that provides audible descriptions and educational facts about the celestial object being viewed. An integrated speaker draws from a database with over four hours of audio to state facts like "Jupiter is larger than 1,300 earths" or "Mars has volcanoes, deserts, and polar ice caps." Users can select from a database of 30,000 celestial objects via the handheld controller and the motorized telescope automatically rotates and tilts to align its lens with the constellation, planet, or nebula. For optimal astronomical viewing, the telescope uses its location and current time to determine the best direction for celestial observation and automatically adjusts to those coordinates. The telescope has a 102mm refractive lens, 800mm focal length, and an LED viewfinder. It comes with 9mm and 25mm eyepieces and an adjustable aluminum tripod. Requires eight AA batteries. 31" L x 29" W x 58" H.
