The Galileoscopeā„¢ is a high-quality, low-cost telescope kit developed for the International Year of Astronomy 2009 by a team of leading astronomers, optical engineers, and science educators. No matter where you live, with this easy-to-assemble, 50-mm (2-inch) diameter, 25- to 50-power achromatic refractor, you can see the celestial wonders that Galileo Galilei first glimpsed 400 years ago and that still delight stargazers today. These include lunar craters and mountains, four moons circling Jupiter, the phases of Venus, Saturn's rings, and countless stars invisible to the unaided eye. The Galileoscope costs just US$15 each plus shipping for 1 to 99 units, or US$12.50 each plus shipping for 100 or more.

I think this is a greate telescope for those of us who are interested in astronomy, but cant afford to buy a telescope yet. I have placed my order and are looking forward to recieving my Galileoscope.

Just wanted to give the members of ATS who havent heard about this a heads up.

Here is a demovideo of how the Galileoscope works.
