Save 45% on a brilliant telescope that's well suited for those without much or any previous stargazing experience. You get fully coated optics, a 70mm aperture, a collapsible tripod, eyepieces and a red dot finder scope. 

There's much to like about this telescope aside from the sizable deal. You get a lot for your money and the discount on top of the already low price-point makes this all the more worthwhile. Above all else, the optics are good, they're fully coated and combined with a 70mm aperture, making views of the moon and planets more than decent. 

There's also a host of accessories on offer for your money. You get a collapsible tripod, two eyepieces (10mm and 20mm), a red dot finder scope, a free download of Starry Night software and a 2-year US warranty. If you haven't got much previous stargazing experience, there's a lot here to enhance your experience and help you in the world of astronomy. 

You also get a panning handle so you can track any night sky targets with ease. A 47% saving is massive, especially for an already low price point and considering you get the usual Celestron reliability you'd expect. While you do get a few accessories, this is a no-frills, manual telescope so if you get a fully hands-on stargazing experience.
