I don't know why all of a sudden I got into astronomy, maybe because of all this 2012 rumors; but I've always been curious about science and when I was a kid I used to buy binoculars and experiment kits, anyway... This telescope is more than you can ask for the price, I bought mine for $83 at Frys, and it retails for $169... I'm very pleased with the quality and sturdiness, someday I will be able to afford their best one for $10,000. Thank you Celestron. (Posted on 3/31/12)
I have always wanted a telescope, & for my 60th I recieved the AstroMaster 76EQ, I was amazed at the ease of putting it together & the high quality of it.
Furthemore for anyone wanting a 1st telescope I would reccommed this one to anyone.
The quality & clearness of it needs to be seen to be believed.
Well done Celestron . (Posted on 2/8/12)
