CELESTRON: ALL-STAR ACCESS

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. Celestron eyepieces and telescope filters are made to the same exacting standards as their counterparts, and offer viewers the ability to expand their collection and observational ability without the cost of an entire telescope. Celestron binoculars put high-quality components to use on a smaller scale, forming optical equipment that fits in the hand for astronomical or terrestrial viewing.

Celestron is as passionate about astronomy and optics as their wide and active customer base, and enjoys being a part of their lives. When purchasing a Celestron telescope or accessory, you become part of a community of elite equipment owners and cutting-edge riding scientific observers. We're proud to offer this iconic brand at the best prices on the internet, and look forward to offering Celestron products to everyone who shops at Hayneedle.com/Celestron/.

What Satisfied Customers Are Saying about Celestron

nice!
By Dustin from INOLA,OK on 4/20/2014
As a general telescope, it works great. The alignment of the three stars I choose was not accurate, but when I use the go to feature, the telescope went to my targets (Mars and Jupiter). I could not get much detail of these planets, I think it was the night air. Also when using this telescope the first time around there was no moon (I could still see stars in the background when using this telescope). One other thing I live in the country, away from the city lights, although my neighbor had all his lights on next door.

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.

Very happy
By Johan from Shreveport, la on 7/6/2014
I did not know what to expect. After watching some YouTube vids and getting reaquainted with astronomy, I got the telescope in the mail. It blew my mind the first night of viewing. It did not take half the time or trouble setting it up as I expected. Polar alignment was a breeze and tracking is right on. The tripod kept everything steady. It did help that I ordered other eyepieces and a 2x barlow. Saturn and Mars is as beautiful as I remembered it decades ago. Now that I see the scope is what I know that I needed, time for some astrophotography. Definantly a good buy.
