Royal Observatory Greenwich FirstScope 76 Celestron Telescope
It doesn’t get much simpler or more portable than the Celestron FirstScope’s tabletop Dobsonian design. Just remove it from the box, insert an eyepiece, and you’re ready to view the Moon, planets, nebulae, and more!
This high quality Dobsonian style stand with its 76 mm reflector optical tube make the FirstScope an ideal entry level astronomical telescope. It is very easy to observe with as the user simply navigates the night sky by moving the tube in the direction of their desired object.
FirstScope’s Newtonian reflector optical system features a spherical glass mirror with a generous 76 mm of aperture. The FirstScope’s wide field-of-view provides bright, sharp views of the Moon’s mountains and craters in crisp detail. The telescope can also be enjoyed to pan the Milky Way, explore open star clusters, marvel at Saturn’s rings, or view favourite deep-sky objects like the Orion Nebula.
FirstScope is the perfect companion for camping trips and all your outdoor sky watching adventures; a great choice for kids and families.
