The Celestron AstroMaster telescope series has been designed to give the beginner astronomer a perfect combination of quality and price. The Astromaster 70 LT AZ telescope offers exceptional mobility and rich equipment - it is a perfect introduction to the world of amateur astronomy. Unique and affordable price, and at the same time great opportunities are the main advantages of this series. The telescope gives clear and contrasting images of the moon and planets. Lenses with a diameter of 70 mm allow observation of the Sun (special filter required), the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter along with moons, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Within the range of the telescope, there are lighter comets, asteroids and outside the Planetary System, as well as lighter galaxies, nebulae, globular and open clusters, double and multiple stars. We will scan this telescope with most objects in the Messier catalog and in a small part of the NGC catalog.
Due to the low weight, the telescope is ideally suited as a portable device that can take vehicles in regions with better air transparency far from big cities.

This device focuses a lot of light. Looking directly at the sun through this device can result in partial or complete loss of vision. For the observation of the Sun, we recommend the safest method of spectacle projection, that is, projecting the image of the target of our day star on a piece of paper.
