Essentially an upgraded version of Celestron's hugely popular Firstscope 76, this special edition Cometron 76 features the same Newtonian optics but includes an optical finderscope and higher quality Kellner eyepieces.

Point it at the Moon and you will see craters, for a youngster starting astronomy that alone will provide a ‘WOW’ moment. Jupiter and its four brightest moons are also visible, Saturn's rings too, even under a light-polluted sky! If you are fortunate to live under a dark sky the brighter star clusters, nebulae and even galaxies are within reach. 

FEATURES

  • Fast focal ratio offers a wide field of view, perfect for observing comets, star clusters, galaxies, and more
  • Lightweight and portable, a great grab-and-go telescope
  • Simple design makes it easy for beginners to use
  • No-tool setup means you are up and observing in no time
  • Includes a finderscope and two Kellner eyepieces
