In 1609, world-renowned Italian scientist, Galileo Galilei, introduced an elementary telescope to the growing astronomy community which sparked interest into the mysterious night sky for centuries to come. Four centuries later, Celestron offers the portable FirstScope Tabletop Telescope. The FirstScope pays tribute to Galileo Galilei and many of history’s most notable astronomers and scientists by displaying their names around the optical tube. We honor the contributions of these men and women, who brought us one step closer to understanding the universe around us.

The FirstScope by Celestron is a wonderful keepsake for anyone interested in astronomy. This quality Dobsonian style tabletop telescope features a 76mm aperture reflector optical tube, (also known as a Newtonian scope). FirstScope is an ideal entry level astronomical telescope. It is very easy to use for astronomy. Place the scope on top of a table or other steady surface. Then navigate the night sky by moving the tube in the direction of your desired object; your viewing experience is a snap! The compact design makes it easy enough to take with you on your next outdoor adventure. This Celestron FirstScope is also stylish enough to be a decorative fixture on your bookshelf or desk.
