Celestron Astromaster

The Celestron AstroMaster series is designed with affordability and simplicity in mind. Sporting an eye-catching blue and orange refractor telescope mounted on a simple-to-use altazimuth mount, the Celestron Astromaster 70AZ Refractor Telescope is the type of telescope you will be proud to display in your lounge room or on the balcony. The refractor tube is fully sealed which means no internal cleaning is necessary, and using purely glass lenses and no mirrors, the Celestron Astromaster 70AZ Refractor Telescope provides a very crisp, sharp image with excellent clarity.

Featuring erect image optics which ensures that the view is always correctly oriented, the Celestron Astromaster 70AZ Refractor Telescope is not only a great telescope for astronomy, but can also be used as a land spotting scope. Great for basic birdwatching, ocean views or just setting up on the balcony to watch the world go by. With an easy to use altazimuth mount with one handle for basic up, down, left, right movement, the whole family will be able to use this telescope unaided.

Included with the Celestron Astromaster 70AZ Refractor Telescope are two eyepieces: a low magnification 20mm which is great for viewing stars and constellations, and a 10mm high magnification which is ideal for looking at moon craters and bringing planets in a bit closer. With this telescope, you will get a great view of the moon and constellations and a basic view of the planets. The Celestron Astromaster 70AZ Refractor Telescope is ideal for viewing objects within our Solar System.

Night viewing sky party with the kids - SUCCESS! Review by B Baxter
Overall Score
We have had great success organising a sky party for my 10 y.o and his friends. They put everything together themselves, and with the 70AZ Celestron telescope, they managed to see the moon in impressive detail, everyone was amazed! I would certainly recommend this telescope, and thank you guys for suggesting the moon filter too. (Posted on 8/09/2015)
This was a Christmas gift for the kids that you can use easily and set up indoors or outdoors for night viewing. Review by Peta
Overall Score
We were impressed with the objects we could see with this telescope from the first night. We are already looking at improving our use as beginner astronomers with more eyepieces. The tripod is steady and easy to lock in position. The children are learning to focus and make small adjustments as the objects rotate. It is a really great telescope! (Posted on 8/01/2013)
Perfect first telescope Review by Emily Brown
Overall Score
Fantastic first telescope for my family! It's a bonus that we can use it for land viewing as well. When we are ready for a bigger telescope, we'll definitely shop here again! (Posted on 4/10/2012)
