In 1609, world-renowned Italian scientist, Galileo Galilei, introduced an elementary telescope to the growing astronomy community which sparked interest into the mysterious night sky for centuries to come. Four centuries later, we are able to offer you the portable Celestron FirstScope Telescope. The FirstScope pays tribute to Galileo Galilei and many of history’s most notable astronomers and scientists by displaying their names around the optical tube. We honor the contributions of these men and women, who brought us one step closer to understanding the universe around us.

The Celestron FirstScope was designed as an ideal entry-level optic for observing the Moon and planets on a budget. This cheap but excellent tabletop telescope features a Newtonian reflector optical design, and comes with two fully multi-coated 1.25″ diameter eyepieces that yield 15x and 75x magnifications. The manual tabletop alt-azimuth mount gives you easy control of the telescope for tracking near and deep-sky objects. This telescope is easy to assemble and transport, so you can spend less time setting up and more time enjoying the night sky.
