Black Friday is here and Walmart has this great offer of over $50 off on this Celestron Astromaster 70AZ refractor telescope in a fantastic early deal, perfect for any budding astronomer. 

That's 40% off a telescope from one of the most reliable makers of telescopes out there. The early Black Friday deal ($129.95 down to $78.00 (opens in new tab)) is particularly good value as the telescope set comes with a smartphone adaptor, a Bluetooth remote and a tripod, accessories that aren't always standard. 

Black Friday itself is Nov. 26 but we're expecting some supply issues in the optics industry this year. Buying a telescope can be a big deal, so make sure you check out our best telescopes (opens in new tab), best telescopes for kids (opens in new tab) and Black Friday telescope deals (opens in new tab) pages for more deals. Our advice is if you see a deal perfect for you, act quickly to make sure you get it.
