    Effortlessly explore the cosmos.

    With the Celestron StarSense Explorer LT 70AZ Refractor Telescope, getting lost in the universe is never a part of the journey.


    Your key to hassle-free stargazing.

    With integrated StarSense Explorer technology, the LT 70AZ pairs seamlessly with the StarSense Explorer App, compatible with both Apple iOS and Android smart devices. By harnessing your smartphone or tablet's GPS and camera capabilities, it precisely pinpoints your location in the night sky. With the app in hand, selecting your desired celestial object becomes a breeze. Just follow the on-screen arrows with your telescope, and you're on your way to exploring the wonders above.

    This user-friendly design is tailored for beginners, making it an ideal choice for those new to stargazing.


    With a no-frills optical design & mechanical construction.

    The 70AZ is a simple Refractor Telescope, meaning very little alignment and maintenance is needed to get started with and continue with astronomy. And what's more - the telescope comes with a straightforward Alt-Azimuth (AZ) Mount, eliminating the need for complex mount alignment procedures. Just put it down somewhere and observe! It's a true beginner's telescope, offering no-frills viewing from the get-go.

    But it's simplicity doesn't mean that it isn't a capable telescope. With a Refractor optical design, this telescope can be used during the night to observe the wonders above, but it can also be used during the day to observe land / sea. It's super versatile!
