About this deal

Better suited as a beginner telescope, this Newtonian reflector is a worthwhile low-budget purchase for children — especially if you suspect that astronomy is likely to be a passing phase or basic but fair views of the moon, planets and stars are suitable before investing in an upgrade. Navigating without a finder scope did prove quite cumbersome during our observations, making star-hopping especially difficult. Having everything together in one easily-identifiable carry bag will make it even quicker to grab your telescope and get outside to see the latest comet, bright, shining planet, or lunar eclipse!

If there was an award for most needed eyepiece upgrade this scope would win it, what a difference when I popped in the 8mm BST! Our experienced staff can test refractor lenses up to 120mm aperture and provide a comprehensive 2 page report showing the optical quality and Strehl ratio, plus much more information. The FirstScope was tested on the waxing gibbous Moon, the Orion Nebula, the Pleiades star cluster and several double stars. I immediately bought a Celestron barlow lens - very nice lens - which means I can get much better magnification from the longer focus eyepiece, and any lens down to about 10mm.Learn the constellations, print out star charts for an upcoming observing session, and learn how to identify planets and stars, and more! Celestron has joined forces with master lunar imager Robert Reeves on this new addition to the beloved FirstScope family: Moon by Robert Reeves.

It is undoubtedly beautiful and mysterious, and is one of those constants in our lives that connects us to every other being on our planet. The FirstScope Accessory Kit expands the capabilities of your FirstScope telescope to make it more enjoyable and easier to use, enhance your views of the night sky, and make it safer to transport wherever you go. Why not check out the Celestron Moon Filter or Moon Filter Set to improve the contrast and observe the Moon in even more detail.

Celestron 76 mm Firstscope FirstScope pays tribute to the men and women who brought us one step closer to understanding the universe around us!

The 4mm eyepiece has 75x optical magnification to provide a detailed look at the Moon and other planets such as the rings on Saturn. Again, these are measured by the interferometer when we take measurements of the optical surface after adjustment. This tabletop Dobsonian-style telescope includes a spherical mirror with a generous 76 mm of aperture. She has covered stories and features for publications such as Physics World, Astronomy Now and Astrobiology Magazine.The FirstScope was tested during the day on terrestrial targets and also on astronomical targets at night.
