Best telescope deals: Celestron telescopes up to 36% off

The Strawberry Moon occurs on June 3, and you already know your iPhone camera won’t help you get a good look at our cratered neighbor. Prepare for this not-to-be-missed celestial event with Celestron’s best telescope deals below.

When it comes to finding the best telescopes and knowing which one to buy, a learning curve is required. Still, getting a good view of Saturn’s rings, the Ursa Major constellation, or a particularly bright full moon doesn’t have to be difficult (or expensive). From June 2nd, selected Celestron telescopes will be on sale at Amazon. It’s the perfect excuse to finally step into the summer night and impress your loved ones with your newfound knowledge of the stars. Here are some of our most popular Celestron telescopes on offer:

Best telescope for beginners

Why we love it

The Celestron TravelScope 70DX(opens in a new tab) has the lowest maximum magnification of any telescope we stock (only 168x; the larger the magnification, the larger the object inside the scope will appear to your eye), but its price makes it a great option for someone who isn’t quite ready be Neil deGrasse Tyson. The 70DX is truly beginner-friendly: it’s lightweight, includes accessories like a smartphone adapter and Bluetooth remote control, and gives you free access to Celestron’s educational software/app. This means you can easily capture your sightings on camera and learn more about what you’re actually seeing. The Travel Scope 70DX, unlike our other two picks on this list, also comes with a custom carry case should you wish to take it with you on your upcoming summer vacation.

Best telescope for finding objects quickly

Why we love it

The Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ(opens in a new tab) has an outstanding feature that comparable Celestron telescopes lack: a StarPointer red dot finder. This makes it easier to find an object in the sky and center it in your eyepiece. The adjustable red dot is bright enough to see day or night (that’s right, some planets can also be observed through the telescope during the day!). In addition, it is equipped with a 50x or 100x magnification option and a tripod.

Best telescope for a very detailed view

Why we love it

The Celestron PowerSeeker 127EQ(opens in a new tab) has a killer magnification (maximum 300x and two eyepiece options of 50x or 250x). The downside to this high display performance is a heavier overall weight than the other options listed, but it’s still portable enough that transporting it isn’t a team effort. Like the Travel Scope 70DX, the PowerSeeker 127EQ features a Barlow lens that boosts the magnification of the eyepieces even further, making it our top choice for detailed views of the sky.
