One of The Best Buys Ever

I bought this product for my husband who is a keen bird watcher, and he finds it superb. It is easy to put together and very easy to use. Would definitely recommend this product for other potential purchasers. Well worth it.

4 / 5

Good beginner telescope, once you get the hang of it with the different eyepieces. Looking at moon was good and Jupiter with its moons. Also good for looking over land

5 / 5

excellent for beginners

This is a very good telescope for beginners like me and my fiance, instructions are quite simple and easy to follow with regards to assembly, unfortunately there was no detailed information about each lens how to set it up to see object you'd like to observe but after half hour I managed to set it up and have superb view of the moon. Close ups are really good, can't do it to see planets yet, need to browse the Internet to learn how to do it. Telescope is very light which makes it shake in a wind but this can be eliminated by attaching something heavy to the tripod eg. carrier bag with few bottles of water. Whole set comes from US and had some vouchers included inside the box for further purchases of accessories for this telescope. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase, great fun for all family, made a fantastic Xmas pressent.

Hello, Kenneth.

Of course - the Argos aliens!


can you see the stars clearly with this

2 Answers

Stars will look like pin points of light same as with the naked eye, however you will be able to see more of them and that some are multiple systems. You will also be able to see their colours better.


Hi, thank you for your question.

I am sorry we are unable to comment on the quality of an item, however the Celestron Telescope PS70/700 Refractor has a maximum magnification of 525x which will offer some idea on how close you are able to see stars, although weather aspects may affect the quality of this magnification.

Thank you for using Q & A.


is this telescope capable of seeing planets in the solar system clearly.

2 Answers

Yes you will see Saturn's rings and Jupiter's moons. Mars will be a small red blob. Venus will look like a tiny version of our moon. Other planets will look like stars though as they are too small or far away.
