Celestron AstroMaster 90AZ Telescope

AstroMaster 90AZ is a decent telescope, but it is highly overpriced.

Celestron AstroMaster 80AZS Telescope

Celestron is a company famous for its overpriced beginner telescopes. Thankfully, AstroMaster 80 AZS is not one of them. It is a decent refractor worth its 140$ price tag.

Celestron didn’t surprise us with this overpriced, average quality beginner telescope. You can get the same model from Meade (Infinity 70) for half the price and better accessories.

AstroMaster 90EQ is the only telescope in the AstroMaster line that we actually recommend. It still has a wobbly, plastic mount. But its accessories and optics are vastly better than the other AstroMaster’s.

AstroMaster 130EQ shouldn’t be bought in any case. It comes with a spherical primary mirror, which is low in quality and easy to manufacture.

This is a telescope that shouldn’t be bought in any circumstance. Unfortunately, Celestron is completely content with selling innocent beginners junk for their hard-earned money.

Celestron AstroMaster 76EQ is much better than the other AstroMaster’s, but we still don’t recommend it. The plastic mount is a frustration. While the optics are not bad, there are better choices for the same price.

It seems like Celestron tried to make the most frustrating telescope model possible and sell it to people so that they can discourage them from becoming astronomers. 

Celestron PowerSeeker 70EQ is the only model in the PowerSeeker line that we actually recommend. It is a decent telescope that is almost worth its 100$ price tag.

Celestron PowerSeeker 127 is a marketing scam. Unfortunately, it is one of the worst telescope models and is popular among innocent beginners.
