About this product

Model:  cel_astromaster_70az_pkg

Kids love this telescope because it looks and feels precisely how they imagine a telescope to be. It can also be used for terrestrial observing so is a good choice if you have a room with a view. 

Please don't let it's low price mislead you, the Celestron Astromaster 70AZ is not a department-store toy.
