The Celestron Ambassador 80AZ Brass Telescope has now been discounted at Amazon (opens in new tab) this Cyber Monday, a steal at over $100 off for skywatchers looking for something unique compared to most telescopes on the market.

With its show-stopping brass design and mahogany tripod, the Ambassador 80AZ is a stunning ornamental piece for the home. In terms of optical prowess, its 3.15-inch (80 mm) aperture makes its design ideal for casual views of the planets, lunar surface and some bright deep-sky offerings in the night sky. 

During our review of this telescope (opens in new tab), the moon at first quarter phase — with craters standing out along the terminator (the point between lunar night and day) — is a particularly breathtaking sight through the field of view. Saturn's rings and Jupiter's atmospheric bands are also well-received through the optical system, especially with the addition of colored planetary filters.
