Celestron celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010, marking half a century of innovation and achievement in bringing the best optical equipment to anyone who leaning skyward. In 1960, Tom Johnson of Valor Electronics built a 6-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope for his sons, eventually parlaying his hobby into a full-time business and adopting the Celestron name. He created the first affordable production method for the Schmidt corrector plates that make catadioptric telescopes possible, revolutionizing the optical equipment available outside the laboratory. In the 50 years hence, Celestron has undergone an evolution of both business and technology that has allowed to company to continue to produce the highest-quality, most advanced telescopes and optical equipment on both an observatory and backyard scale.

Today Celestron telescopes are revered by NASA, Popular Science, and just about everyone who's used one. Hooking new recruits to stargazing with the Celestron AstroMaster line of affordable reflector telescopes, the amateur astronomer can grow with the brand they know and trust, upgrading to the iconic orange tube of the Celestron NexStar SE series and again to the Celestron CPC telescope series. The company also continues to bring new entries in GPS- and connectivity-based products designed to allow people to bypass difficult astrolocation and get straight to the good stuff. The Celestron SkyScout allows anyone to point and click to identify over 50,000 stars, planets, deep-sky objects, and more and makes a perfect companion to a telescope of any size.

As a manufacturer, Celestron refuses to let any of their knowledge and means of production go to waste, making a wide range of telescope accessories and other optical designs, binoculars, weather instruments, microscopes, and more.

This is a good telescope. Easy to setup. Little trouble with alignment, but most likely my mistakes. Returning for 8 SE.

Great value!
By Brian from SANTA ROSA,CA on 5/16/2014
When mounted to a sturdy tripod with a video head, this little scope really performs. The 32mm Plossl eyepiece is very bright and easy to use. Jupiter's belts are visible but I ordered the accessory kit to get more powerful eyepieces for planet viewing. Reviews of this scope have compared it quite favorably to ones costing much more. It's a huge improvement over the previous model.

Excellent Beginner Scope
By steve n Maryland from Baltimore, MD on 6/27/2014
I've now had this item about 2 years with lots of use so I feel I'm well versed in it's capabilities. This scope can be AMAZING. Remember that you need quality optics AND GOOD/GREAT VIEWING CONDITIONS w/ANY SCOPE. Views of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus & the moon are exceptional. DSOs like Orion, Ring, Dumbell nebulas & a host of others can be jaw dropping. I use it in light polluted areas as well as Star Party dark sites and I've had great results. Suggest you get the bundle + A/C adapter, upgrade the diagonal & some above average EPs - $100 range or a premium zoom & sky chart. Note in early spring or late fall when humidity is low, a blustery day (to blow away the pollution) followed that night with a clear sky & calm conditions = eye popping views. ENJOY!!!

More than we expected!
By Millie from MORGANTOWN,WV on 5/26/2014
My son purchased this as a birthday present for his sister (my daughter). She LOVES it! She has used it every evening/night since receiving it. The "bundle" with the various lenses, added to and increased the excitment and joy of locating stars and planets. It is computerized and motorized, it will find and track objects in the sky at a touch of the controls. It is great to use during daylight hours. It brings in distance objects with surprising clarity. With its many features it will allow for many hours of gazing, mapping, and photography.
