Perfect astronomy gift: This beginner telescope is under $100

An ideal first telescope for beginners that want to get started in astronomy but are working to a budget. The Celestron AstroMaster 70AZ LT is now under $100 (opens in new tab) and includes a smartphone adapter and Bluetooth remote so new astronomers can get set up quickly. At this price, we think it’s good for gifting in the coming holiday season for any space-fanatic in your life.

There are no tools required to get this entire telescope kit set up, as every module comes pre-assembled. This beginner telescope comes with an adjustable height tripod and two eyepieces (20mm and 10mm) for viewing different-sized celestial objects. Helpfully, the AstroMaster LT 70AZ also ships with an erect image star diagonal so you don’t have to bend down too far to view objects through the eyepiece. A finderscope aids approximate location of night sky objects and the panning handle on the tripod has an Alt-az clutched panning handle for smooth and precise repositioning.
