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.
Celestron was founded by Tom Johnson whose first telescope design was a simple 6-inch reflector, built for his young son. He gradually progressed to making larger scopes in more sophisticated designs. Today, the Celestron company is an industry leader in designing and manufacturing optical equipment including telescopes (computerised and non-computerised), binoculars, spotting scopes and its accompanying accessories. Celestron's legacy spans 50 years, and has grown to enjoy recognition from amateurs to serious astronomers globally. The company seeks to remain innovative by growing its product offerings, while supporting science education around the world.
