Celestron Astromaster Telescope
Which Celestron Astromaster Telescope best matches your requirements?
If you’re looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the Celestron AstroMaster Telescope Series is for you. The AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land and sky.
The AstroMaster produces bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments.
For views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, we recommend the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors.
If your interest is strictly watching whales, spotting birds, viewing nature, or checking out your favorite star or planet the altazimuth-mounted models are ideal.
Alt-Az models have a convenient pan handle with built-in clutch for easy targeting and smooth motion. Models featuring the German Equatorial mount are a good choice for viewing stars, nebulae, star clusters, and planets. Built-in setting circle aids in locating these objects.
When used for astronomical viewing, AstroMasters yield breathtaking views of the Moon, Saturn with its ring structure, Jupiter and its belts and moons,nebulae and star clusters.
