BH #CEFS763004 • MFR #21024
Celestron FirstScope 76mm f/4 Alt-Az Reflector Telescope
Key Features
  • Names of Astronomers/Scientists on Tube
  • 76mm Aperture Newtonian Reflector
  • 300mm Focal Length, f/4 Focal Ratio
  • 1.25" Rack-and-Pinion Focuser
Wrapped with a graphic featuring the names of prominent astronomers and scientists who advanced humanity's knowledge of the stars, the Celestron FirstScope 76mm f/4 Signature Series Moon Alt-Az Reflector Telescope is designed as an ideal entry-level optic for observing the Moon and planets, comet-watching, and enjoying meteor showers. This tabletop telescope features a Newtonian reflector optical design, and comes with two fully multi-coated 1.25" diameter eyepieces that yield 15x and 75x magnifications. The manual tabletop alt-azimuth mount gives you easy control of the telescope for tracking near and deep-sky objects. This telescope is easy to assemble and transport, so you can spend less time setting up and more time enjoying the night sky.

Optical Performance
  • 76mm aperture is ideal for lunar and planetary viewing
  • Fast f/4 focal ratio ensures images are bright
  • Short 300mm focal length yields lower magnifications for wide fields of view to complement the manual AZ mount
  • Newtonian reflector design produces a longer effective focal length than the physical length of the optical tube to ensure a compact form factor
  • Resolution: 1.83 arcsec, Rayleigh; 1.53 arcsec, Dawes
  • 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser
Mount
  • Manual alt-azimuth mount
  • Stable tabletop base
  • Easy set up and leveling on virtually any surface including tables and car hoods
Eyepieces
  • 1.25" diameter barrel
  • Accepts most 1.25" filters and accessories
  • Fully multi-coated to improve color and contrast
  • 4mm eyepiece for 75x magnification
  • 20mm eyepiece for 15x magnification

What can you see with this telescope? Can you see nearby galaxies?
Asked by: Lester
The FirstScope is the little scope that could. Don't let its small size fool you. If used at a dark sky site away from city light pollution, you can easily see the Andromeda Galaxy, M81 & M82 galaxies, Orion Nebula and more. You can also observe solar system objects, but it is recommended to purchase a 2x Barlow lens or higher power eyepieces.

What kind of 2X Barlow can I buy to use with my Celestron first Scope ?
Asked by: Roger
We recommend the Celestron Omni 2x Barlow Lens #93326, or the X-Cel LX 2x Barlow Lens #93529. Both will work well with the Celestron FirstScope telescope.
