Celestron has joined forces with the Royal Observatory, Greenwich for this addition to the beloved FirstScope family. This quality Dobsonian-style telescope features a spherical glass mirror with a generous 76mm aperture.

This compact, lightweight telescope is an ideal entry-level astronomical telescope. Just remove it from the box, insert an eyepiece, and you’re ready to view. To navigate the sky, simply rotate the azimuth axis in the direction of your desired object. It doesn’t get much simpler or more portable than the FirstScope.

Its compact design makes the FirstScope easy to take along on your next camping trip, picnic, or hike. When not in use, the Royal Observatory FirstScope will be a stylish decorative fixture on your bookshelf or desk.
