In 1609, world-renowned Italian scientist, Galileo Galilei, introduced an elementary telescope to the growing astronomy community. It sparked interest into the mysterious night sky for centuries to come.

Four centuries later, Celestron offers the portable FirstScope Telescope. The FirstScope pays tribute to Galileo Galilei and other 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.

Accessory Kit is not included. Accessory kit can be purchased from Celestron.
