We received a My First Telescope from Educational Insights to play with and review. Andrew really liked the Nancy B. telescope from Educational Insights that Eva got last year and I suspect he was a tad jealous. When I was given the opportunity to review one for him I couldn’t say no. However, I’ve had the telescope for a while and It just so happened to make it work out along with tonight’s Super Moon. Unfortunately we did not get to see the Super Moon because of trees and distance.

The telescope is a cute little one that you put onto a table top. It is colorful and easy to use. It is part of the GeoSafari® Jr. line from Educational Insights and is great for STEM learning. The telescope is Focus Free and good for little ones because they are looking through two large eyepieces with comfy goggle and nose cut-out guide for perfect eye placement.

The Latest Super Moon

Photo-A-Day #3382

In the next few months there will be two more Super Moons. There is one for August 10 and September 9. The Super Moon seems to show up on weekends when I’m at work. We can see the Super Moon out the window and it looks amazing. Tonight I decided to try and shoot the moon. I got some great tips from Zach Rosenberg a fellow Imagelogger. He gave me some setting to try in order to get a nice shot of the moon.

The nice thing about the NX30 is that there are two custom slots on the cameras. You can set up all the custom settings that you want and save them. So, when you are out and want to shoot the moon next month or the month after I can just switch to C1 on the dial and I’m all ready to go to shoot the moon next month. Now, to find a great place where I can take an amazing shot.
