The quintessential beginner telescope, Celestron’s dual-purpose AstroMaster 70AZ Refracting Telescope features precision construction and premium coated optics for bright, clear views, whether you’re observing celestial objects of terrestrial landscapes. The AstroMaster 70AZ is a great way to begin exploring the craters of the Moon, the moons of Jupiter, and the rings of Saturn plus more.

The Alt-Az mount is equipped with a convenient pan handle and built-in clutch for easy targeting and smooth motion. This mount design is best for viewing nature and celestial objects. It is also the simplest mount to operate for beginners. The Celestron AstroMaster 70AZ has a long focal length of 900mm. The advantage is slightly higher magnifications with the supplied eyepieces compared to shorter focal length telescopes like the similar LT 70AZ (700mm focal length).

Looking for a portable and easy to assemble telescope for celestial viewing? Then the AstroMaster Series is just for you! These simple telescopes produce bright, clear images of the moon and planets. It’s easy to observe the belts and moons of Jupiter, rings of Saturn, and craters on the moon!

This 70AZ (900mm focal length) is much longer than the similar LT 70AZ (700mm focal length), which increases both magnification and contrast when looking out into space. It should be noted that the image when looking through this telescope is the correct way round since it uses a prism diagonal, while the image when looking through the LT 70AZ will be reversed (mirror imaged)
