Celestron AstroMaster LT 70AZ

The AstroMaster LT 70AZ refractor comes complete with everything you need to view the wonders of the night sky the first time out!

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 Celestron AstroMaster 70AZ has a short focal length of 700mm when compared to the LT 70AZ. This makes the scope slightly more portable, providing wider fields of view.

Looking for a portable and easy to assemble telescope for celestial viewing? Then the AstroMaster Series is just for you! Two eyepieces and a red dot finder are included, so once it’s unboxed, you’re ready to go!

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 LT 70AZ (700mm focal length) is slightly shorter than the similar 70AZ (900mm focal length), providing increased portability and a slightly wider field of view. It should be noted that the image when looking through this telescope is reversed, since it uses a mirror diagonal, while the image when looking through the 900mm version will be the correct way round.
