Celestron AstroMaster 70EQ Telescope


The Celestron AstroMaster 70 EQ - 70mm Refractor on CG-2 Equatorial Mount is a great dual-purpose telescope for terrestrial and celestial viewing. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving image correct views of land and sky. With its time tested durability and high-quality optics at an affordable price, the Celestron Astro Master makes a great first telescope! 

The Celestron 70mm AstroMaster telescope is a high quality, economical telescope with a superb optical system. These telescopes produce breathtaking views of the Moon, Saturn with its ring structure, Jupiter and its belts, and hundreds of deep-sky objects! Add an optional solar filter and you can observe activity on the Sun.

While observing, you'll notice that as the Earth rotates on its axis, stationary stars appear to move across the sky causing the object you're viewing to drift out of the field of view. A telescope on a mount can be aimed at a celestial object and guided with the slow-motion controls to track your target!
