Maybe you know someone who can't wait to get a look at the wonders of the night sky. Maybe that person is you. Either way, the Celestron COSMOS FirstScope is the perfect way to get started on a budget. The telescope's lightweight, portable design makes it easy to grab it and go if you're headed out on a camping trip. With a viewing tube just 10" long, it's compact enough to store away during the daytime, or hang out in a junior astronomer's room without taking up too much window space. The 'scope's 76mm aperture lets in plenty of light, so you get bright, clear views of objects deep in space.
Your guide to the heavens
Inspired by the educational TV series COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey, the telescope tube is adorned with a custom, special-edition wrap featuring the COSMOS eye nebula design. It comes packaged with a Cosmic Calendar poster with images from the show, and a free planetarium app for your Apple® or Android™ device. The FirstScope also pays tribute to Galileo Galilei and many of history's most notable astronomers and scientists by displaying their names around the optical tube, so you can begin searching the night sky right away, armed with a little bit of knowledge.
