True to its name, the Celestron FirstScope is an ultimate beginner telescope that is extremely easy to observe with. Take your first steps into a larger universe with the Celestron FirstScope. Don’t let the simplicity of the design deceive you, the Celestron FirstScope is a powerful optical instrument easy to store, transport and set up. The Celestron FirstScope boasts a stylish and decorative design featuring a 76 mm reflector optical tube, coupled with a table-top stand.
Look into the night sky and discover constellations and planets. It surely will take you and your family on a fascinating journey of the night sky!
Pros: Better than cheap refracting telescopes you often see for around the same price sold in department stores.
Cons: Sets realistic expectations - amateur telescopes don't show Hubble-quality images.
Other Thoughts: To me, the true value of this thing is to allow you to safely know how much of an astronomer you are. Astronomy is a pretty expensive hobby, and if you jump in on a whim and decide later it's not for you, it's better to have spent little on a scope like this rather than $400 on a huge light-bucket you'll never use.
