What planets, Moons, nebulas , and galaxies can you see with this telescope. ?
Asked by: Lester
Most of the planets such as Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus can be seen in the AstroMaster LT 70AZ telescope from the city. Neptune would appear like a very tiny bluish dot if you can locate it. You will also be able to see bright objects like the Moon, Orion Nebula, star clusters, and double stars. However, if you can use your telescope away from city light pollution, galaxies such as Andromeda, M81 and M82, as well as planetary nebulae and globular clusters will be easily viewable.
