    Great telescope

    Customer review by ScienceSam

    I have looked at several telescopes before buying this. For the price, it is a great deal. The 70mm size is much bigger than the usual 60mm telescopes out there. You can really see the craters on the moon, and Jupiter was an awesome sight. it was also easy to use. I have been interested in astronomy and other sciences but this price got me to make a purchase. I am quite a shopper but when i compared the features of this telescope to others out there, I decided on this. I was not disappointed. In fact, I was impressed. It came with several eyepieces and I did not need to purchase additional items. This was a lot of fun. Great product!

    This telescope is an awesome value for the price. We got this for my daughter, who is just now getting into astronomy. It is very powerful and we are able to view constellations, planets, the moon, etc. very clearly and with great detail. It's a bit complicated at first, and can be overwhelming for someone just looking to pull it out and view stars...yes, you can look at the moon without much work, but to figure out the lenses and angles, etc. was a bit daunting. Quite a powerful little 'scope for the money!

    We want to purchase a telescope more for night than day. Does this view the stars clearly?
    by an anonymous customer 11/28/2010
    • YES.. with some practice you can see most stars and most planets aswell. this scope has pretty good optics so with the right focus , you will see clearly.

    • When an item is called a telescope today, generally that means its primarily designed for celestial (nighttime) viewing. When an item is called a spotting scope today, gernally that means it was primarily designed for terrestrial (daytime) use. The limiting factor of refracting telescopes is light gathering. The larger the Objective lens- the more light that can be gathered. This has a 70mm or 2.8" diameter objective. The moon, several planets, tons of stars, some nebulae can be viewed through this telescope. Once light gathering is maximized, 'seeing' conditions become the limiting factor. Celestron is well known for the quality of its optics- so, this will be an oustanding beginner telescope for a budding astronomer. I hope this helps! Dave

    • I was out with this scope last night looking at the grouping of stars in the sword of Orion. I'm not certain but I think I may have even faintly seen the Orion Nebula (but it was definitely in grayscale if I did.) I also was able to clearly see the double-star that is the second star in the handle of the Big Dipper. Hope this helps!

    • Absolutely! This refractor style telescope is outsanding for BOTH day & night viewing (terrestrial & celestial). The set is very inclusive with 3 eyepieces-EP's (Low, medium & high magnification), as well as a 3x Barlow which triples each EP magnification. Finally, it includes an image erecting diagonal which corrects the image and makes tracking both night & day objects more intuitive. I hope this helps! dave

    • This can be used to see things far away during the day, but never look at the sun without proper safety filters and training. These things are not included.

    • For about the same price as this scope, I got my four grandson's Celestron's First Scope. But, in retrospect, I am now wondering if I should have waited on ordered four of these telescopes instead. It really is a great deal. Your 7-year old will need adult supervision (until he is 13) but I'm sure he would love this scope.

    • Yes, all three (3) eyepieces can be used for both Day & night viewing. This also applies to the included 3X Barlow- it too can be used both during the day & at night. Also, please note that a 90 degree erect image diagonal is also included-this also can be used both during the day & night. It assists in viewing & assists in intuitive tracking of objects, as well as correcting images from 'up side down & 'reversed'. I hope this helps! Dave

    • The three eyepieces (and the red-dot finder scope upgrade) along with the great price were the three things that prompted me to buy this scope. I was out with it last night checking out various stars and star groups. I aligned the finderscope during the day using an eagle's nest in a tree about a thousand yards away. Hope this helps.

    • Yes there are 3 and unless you buy a sun filter, it is only for night time use

    • Yes, there are 3 eyepieces included as mentioned in the Item description. And the telescope is good for astronomical (night) and daytime land use. Especially since it comes with 90-degree erect image optics for land viewing and a 70mm aperture. 70mm is large for a telescope this price and it definitely helps when star gazing.
