If you’re in search of a high-quality, professionally designed telescope that is easy to set up and use, the AstroMaster Series 70EQ telescope by Celestron is a superior choice. The AstroMaster 70EQ Refractor Telescope for s and kids to be used together is a user-friendly and powerful telescope engineered with a lightweight frame and fully-coated optics. Our Celestron telescope features a fully-coated 70mm primary mirror. It also features an AstroMaster German Equatorial manual mount that includes two slow-motion control knobs that allow you to make precision adjustments to easily follow celestial objects as they appear to move across the night sky.
The two eyepieces combine with the 70mm aperture optics to produce amazing magnification. The 20mm eyepiece offers 45x magnification, while the 10mm eyepiece provides up-close views up to 90x. This allows you to focus on distant objects with amazing clarity. We have designed the AstroMaster series of telescopes for kids to enjoy exploring the cosmos with supervision. Superior materials provide crystal-clear, bright images of Saturn, Jupiter, and the Moon, along with deep space objects including brighter galaxies and nebulae. You can also use this telescope for viewing land-based objects during daytime hours.
The telescope is quick to set up and requires no tools. The kit includes a rugged, pre-assembled tripod with 1.25-inch steel tube legs, which provide a stable platform for hours of safe use. As a bonus, download our BONUS Starry Night Basic Edition astronomy software for interactive sky simulations, a 36,000-object database, and printable sky maps. It’s the best way to learn about the night sky, download printable sky maps, research thousands of celestial objects, and plan your next observing session.

Celestron’s AstroMaster 70 EQ combines the solid optical performance of a classic achromatic refractor with a German style equatorial mount. The Astromaster 70 features easy no-tool setup and much better optics than 60mm beginner scopes. The Astromaster package includes high and low power eyepieces, a correct image diagonal prism, illustrated instructions, and planetarium software for your PC.
The AstroMaster 70 EQ features very good optical performance. Achromatic refractors have a two piece objective lens, the second lens element compensates for “chromatic aberration”, the false color or blue fringes seen in low cost telescopes. In daylight tests I see very little blue fringing with the standard equipment 10mm eyepiece (90X magnification), and none at all with the 20mm eyepiece (45X). Stars and planets show up very nicely with the AstroMaster 70. The bright double star Castor, one of the “twins” in the constellation Gemini, is cleanly split at 90X with the 10mm eyepiece. When I tried an optional eyepiece for a magnification of 150X, I was treated to lovely views of Saturn’s rings and the little orange disk of Mars. My view of the Moon was delightfully crisp and clear; the 20mm eyepiece nicely frames the Lunar disk, and using the 10mm eyepiece I could easily see mountain peaks and terraced walls inside the crater Copernicus.
The AstroMaster 70 EQ also features a newly designed tripod with 1.25 inch stainless steel legs. This new tripod holds the telescope firmly; I had no trouble focusing even with a high power eyepiece. The equatorial mount is a little more complicated to balance and align than the , but the reward is better slow motion control and tracking at magnifications over 100X. Simply point the equatorial axis at Polaris, the North Star, and the telescope tracks celestial objects by turning one slow motion knob. This makes it much easier to use a high power eyepiece while viewing the Moon and Planets. The “star pointer” finder scope works by shining a red LED on a plastic window; just look through the window and line up the red spot with your target. This works OK for bright objects like the Moon and planets but not so well for finding galaxies and deep space objects.
The AstroMaster 70 EQ is a very good entry level telescope for a student or family. The good quality 70mm optics produce an image that is significantly sharper and brighter than 60mm beginner scopes, and the AstroMaster 70 EQ includes a solid mount, two good eyepieces, and fully illustrated instructions. --Jeff Phillips
