The Celestron Astromaster series are quintessential beginner telescopes. Don’t let their low price fool you, they are not department store toys. They have coated glass optics, long focal-ratios and mostly metal construction.
All Astromaster telescopes provide pleasing views of Jupiter, several of it's moons, and Saturn's rings. The lunar surface will show a wealth of detail and several brighter deep-sky targets are also within reach including the Orion nebula, M13 Globular cluster and the beautiful double-star Albireo.
Whilst intended primarily for astronomy all the Astromaster telescopes shown below provide image-erect views so can also be used for terrestrial observing. If you have a room with a view so plan using the telescope mostly for daytime observing choose the AZ option, if astronomy is your priority order the EQ model.
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.
