Celestron 114AZ-SR Reflector Telescope
Was $219.99 Now $95.99 at Kohl's.
Save over $100 on a reflector telescope that's best suited for beginners and those without a lot of experience with astronomy. It's easy to use and it comes with a range of accessories including a tripod, two eyepieces, a red dot finderscope, an accessory tray and a smartphone adaptor.
Note: use the code "USAVE20" to get an additional $20 off this telescope.
This isn't a computerized telescope, which helps to keep things simple and doesn't risk confusing fledgling astronomers with being too technical, but it does include a smartphone adaptor. Why? So users can capture what they see on camera! Which is a great way of engaging people with astronomy and making the overall experience more fun.
Using that same smartphone, you can also access the Starry Night software, which is included with your purchase. That gives you access to printable maps as well as information on over 36,000 potential targets in the night sky. The eyepieces are 26mm and 9.7mm and you get a red dot finderscope and slow motion rod too, to make finding and tracking targets easier.
