The Orion 10x50 Binocular Stargazing Kit includes everything you need to become familiar with night sky wonders. Even the most inexperienced "newbie" stargazers will soon be able to point out constellations, distinguish planets from stars and see craters on the Moon with the help of the 10x50 Binocular Stargazing Kit. This value-packed kit will wow the whole family of Binoculars with 10x power views of the Moon's cratered surface, as well as celestial showpieces like the Andromeda Galaxy, glittering star clusters and so much more.
Their convenient portability make binoculars ideal instruments for exploring night sky curiosities while on road trips, family campouts and even during casual walks on clear evenings. Of course, the 10x50 binoculars can also be used during daylight hours for high-power terrestrial views of birds, wildlife and scenery. They're great for getting closer views of sporting events from bleacher seats too! The Orion 10x50 Binocular Stargazing Kit is filled with other useful astronomy goodies too.
The included Orion Star Target Planisphere is an easy-to-use star chart wheel you can use year-round to see what stars and constellations will be visible. The Star Target will show you where stars and such can be found in the night sky from hour-to-hour, so you can easily plan when to go outside to observe your favorite constellations.
You can read the StarTarget planisphere at night without disrupting dark-adapted vision with the included RedBeam Mini LED flashlight, which emits red light. Unlike standard white light flashlights, the red light from the RedBeam Mini LED won't degrade your ability to detect details in the dark. On cloudy and clear evenings alike, use the included Starry Night SE software to learn more about the night sky and create your own custom star charts for your specific observing location. Starry Night SE is a powerful tool the whole family will enjoy using to learn about all the celestial goodies you see in the 10x50 binoculars.
With realistic sky simulations and a ton of fun and educational features, user-friendly Starry Night SE software will help you discover your natural affinity for exploring the cosmos. Software requires PC running Windows 7, Vista, XP, or a Macintosh running OSX 10 or higher. A perfect gift for beginning astronomers, the complete Orion 10x50 Binocular Stargazing Kit can provide night after night of family fun under the stars.
