Celestron AstroMaster 70mm EQ Telescope

SKU: 21062

If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope suitable for daytime use, seeing the target the correct way up (some telescopes make the view upside down which isn't easy for daytime aiming!) as well as night time stargazing, the 70mm AstroMaster is a great entry-level telescope.

This telescope is a part of the AstroMaster Range so expect bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. For views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, we recommend the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors - the AstroMaster 114 or 130 reflector (code 32042 or 32044).
