Celestron Telescopes & Equipment
When you're looking for Celestron telescopes and equipment, you know you are choosing a durable, quality product. Celestron is a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality optical products, including their motorized and non-motorized Celestron telescopes and related products such as binoculars, spotting scopes, microscopes and accessories for them all.
Celestron was started in 1960 by a hobbyist looking for a better telescope for his son. The company rapidly grew to offer a range of quality Celestron telescopes. By 1970 Celestron had developed a way of producing Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes (SCT) that not only performed well but were less costly to make, meaning owning an eight or ten inch telescope would be feasible for the backyard astronomer.
Schmidt-Cassegrains remain a strong part of Celestron’s telescope product line, but they’ve also brought us highly innovative products. EdgeHD optical systems, the SkyScout Personal Planetarium, plus wide offerings of beginner, intermediate and advanced Celestron telescopes, microscopes, astronomy binoculars and a huge array of accessories make Celestron a force within the astronomy, science, and outdoor markets.
