Product Description

Product Description

To Infinity and Beyond!

When gazing into the night sky with the naked eye only a small handful of the billions of stars in the universe can be viewed and appreciated at any one time, with the majority of other objects of interest such as planets and asteroids being missed altogether except by the most sharp-eyed observer.

Introduce yourself to the hidden wonders of the universe and expand your celestial knowledge with the PowerSeeker 40AZ Tabletop Telescope by Celestron, designed to give the first-time telescope user the perfect combination of quality, value, features and power. Featuring erect image, fully-coated glass optics with high transmission coatings to enhance image brightness, contrast and clarity, the 40AZ allows crisp, clear viewing of the land as well as the sky for exploration and observation of a variety of objects. Easy to set up with convenient no-tool tripod assembly and ultra portable tabletop design you can ensure that you are always prepared and don’t miss that all important moment, such as the passing of a comet or a lunar eclipse with which timing may be crucial. If you then need to move to a different location or alter the viewing angle for clearer observation you can simply pack up and re-locate within minutes with a nylon carrying bag included for easy transportation and storage when on the go.

Family-Friendly and Great for Beginners

In addition to the carrying bag the 40AZ also comes with an 8mm and 20mm eyepiece and 2x Barlow Lens, which doubles the magnifying power of each individual eyepiece, along with The SkyX CD-ROM with 10,000 object database and enhanced images.

I brought this telescope shortly after the start of the school year for my son, who has recently become particularly enthusiastic about the solar system and space after watching The Wonders of the Solar on TV. After choosing to do a science project at school on the subject of space which fuelled this interest even further, I thought that anything that steered a teenage boy's interest toward science and away from computer games has got to be a worthwhile purchase, and at just over £30 this telescope appeared to be the ideal distraction.

I don't know what the other reviewer expected for around the £30 mark, but considering many of the telescopes on the market and certainly those by a high-quality brand such as Celestron, are probably closer to double that or more (and well out of the price range of people like me) I think it is a fantastic value for the money! After all, it does the job it's meant to do, allows clear viewing of the stars and other aspects of the universe that you could never dream of seeing with the naked eye, it is super-fast and easy to set up coming with the preassembled tripod (which really does save loads of time and is perfect for an impatient teenager), is compact, lightweight and portable to carry around on the go to ensure that you easily move between different viewing positions in order to observe different objects AND the included software (which I think is the same or very similar to that which is included with the high cost scopes) in my opinion is a work of educational brilliance. Even I can understand and appreciate the wonders of the universe with the easy to understand SkyX software and trust me; physics was never my strong point!

I don't have a problem with the construction as it's steady and sturdy enough to support the telescope.

I bought this telescope with high expectations due to the reputation of the brand, however this model proves to be the exception to the rule. This is a very poor quality piece of equipment in terms of its specs and overall robustness and I advise anyone planning on buying to spend an extra £20-50 or so to get something worth your money.

Verified Purchase
Our telescope is still in the box after quite a few attempts to set it up and gaze at the stars. For a start the instructions are not very clear. Then once it is set up you cannot see anything through it. The scope was bought so that our grandchildren could learn more about the stars but because of its very oddly sized tripod and because it moves about so easily the grandchildren could see less than us and very soon gave up on it.

In principle, the telescope and tripod look good for the price. However, on 2 different telescopes, the mounting point on the tripod is wider than the attachment on the telescope and will not mount. Great service from Amazon as they replaced the first one without any issues as I thought it would be a one off, unfortunately the second was identical.

I have now returned the product for a refund.

If you are very amateur in your astronomy then this is a good start. You will definately need to upgrade after a year or so. I only bought it because it was on sale. I wouldnt invest in it for very long term use or for more experienced astronomer-it would be too basic for that.

I've messed around with all kinds of telescope and when a friend asked me if I wanted to have a look through this Celestron I was delighted to. After all, a budget Celestron!

Celestron are one of the BEST names in telescopes. They wouldn't put their brand on a piece of crap would they? So it would be something I could recommend to those astronomers who want something to look through when the moon is out, when something interesting is happening in the summer sky - after all, who in their right mind goes out in the winter when it's cold? Yes yes, I know there are many more interesting things in the winter sky and the atmosphere is better and the heat haze is gone... but it's cold and I don't want to spend 250 on a decent telescope.

Big mistake. Sorry. I didn't mean buying a proper telescope is a big mistake. Buying THIS telescope is a big mistake. Honestly - you're better off spending the money on beer bottles and using them to look at the night sky (after you've drunk the contents obv.)

The telescope is awful. Horrible, tinny, plasticky thing with hardly any magnification, loads of distortion and the flimsiest tripod you can imagine. For shame CELESTRON. You can do (have done) MUCH better than this - even at the super budget end of the spectrum.

If £40 is all you have to spend on a 'scope - don't bother. Buy a decent book about astronomy. And a Philip's Planisphere: Northern 51.5 Degrees - British Isles, Northern Europe Northern USA and Canada (Philip's Astronomy). And use your eyes. Don't buy this scope.
