About Celestron

There’s nothing like seeing the reaction of a person’s first view through a telescope placed on Saturn or the beautifully lit Moon, or hiking through a national park filled with wildlife and taking a closer look through a pair of Celestron binoculars. It’s also hard to recreate the smiles that form on teacher and student faces when using Celestron digital microscopes and sharing their images in real time.Celestron’s goal is to bring you an experience of the universe and the world where you live which will be yours to share with others again and again.
