There’s a reason this telescope also features in our guides to the best budget telescopes under $500 and the best telescopes for kids. The Celestron AstroMaster 70AZ offers many benefits at such a low price, not least because it comes with fully coated glass optics, which means crisp images and no false colors.
The 70mm aperture means enough light can pass through the lens, making your view of a target in the night sky bright enough for the view, the weather, and the right conditions. The focal length is 900 mm, which means that this telescope is better suited for observing the moon and other planets, rather than star clusters and nebulae.
If that wasn’t enough to seduce you, there are plenty of add-ons that could seduce you. For your money, you also get two eyepieces to enhance your stargazing experience (20mm and 10mm), a fully foldable tripod, a red dot finder, free access to Starry Night software to help you pinpoint and study objects in the night sky, and two-year warranty. All this for less than $150, now is the time to make a bargain.
