Celestron AstroMaster Series


The Celestron AstroMaster Series was designed with the first-time telescope buyer in mind. Offering exceptional value, these scopes feature compact and portable designs with ample optical performance to excite any newcomer to the world of amateur astronomy. Which AstroMaster Series model fits your needs best?

If you want a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the refractor models are for you. Refractors produce bright, clear images of the moon and planets as well. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. For better views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, then the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors are a better choice. When used for astronomical viewing, these telescopes yield breathtaking views of the Moon, Saturn with its ring structure, Jupiter and its belts and moons, nebulae and star clusters. Add an optional solar filter, and you can observe activity on the sun.
