Celestron has been an optics industry leader for decades, ever since Tom Johnson unveiled the game-changing C8. We strive to continue his legacy by continually developing exciting products with revolutionary technologies.
Celestron’s highest ambition is to inspire a sense of wonder, knowledge, and fun with every product we make. Even our most affordable telescope, the FirstScope, offers impressive views of the Moon and planets with its coated aluminum mirror and steel optical tube. FirstScope’s compact, tabletop design is easy for children and parents to use together; the optical tube is even adorned with the names of history’s great astronomers to encourage the curiosity of budding scientists. It’s this emphasis on quality and attention to detail that sets Celestron apart—and it’s why our telescopes have been so beloved for decades.
