Product Description & Reviews
The Celestron FirstScope Signature Series Moon by Robert Reeves special bundle commemorates the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing humans on the Moon for the first time in history! On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the Moon after Apollo 11’s Eagle lunar module landed safely in the Sea of Tranquility. This historic event sparked a new generation of amateur astronomers who greeted the Moon with fresh curiosity and a spirit of discovery. NASA’s Apollo missions served as a springboard for our continued exploration of the Solar System. This year, 2019, mankind celebrates the 50th anniversary of this unprecedented achievement, reigniting our collective curiosity about the Earth’s Moon. Now, you can relive the excitement of the Moon landing or bring it to life for a new generation with this special Apollo 11 telescope bundle. In it, you’ll receive our limited-edition commemorative challenge coin. On the front, the coin depicts the American flag planted on the lunar surface with Apollo’s command module, Columbia, orbiting overhead. On the reverse, you’ll see a Celestron telescope set up for stargazing in the mountains. The coin has a 2” diameter and features an antique brushed gold finish. It’s perfect to carry with you or display in a case. Also included in this special bundle is 50 Things to See on the Moon by John A. Read. This book is a wonderful visual introduction to the Moon, designed with first-time stargazers and young adults in mind. To help newbies fall in love with astronomy and our closest celestial neighbor, John A. Read has hand-picked 50 of the best lunar features to observe with a telescope or binocular. You’ll refer to the book night after night as the Moon goes through its cycle of phases and new, interesting surface details come into view. John A. Read has personally observed, photographed, and researched all 50 objects and is passing his best tips and tricks along to you. You’ll enjoy reading his first-hand experience on what you can expect while viewing. As for the telescope, the Travel Scope 70 is a refractor telescope perfect for terrestrial and celestial viewing on the go. The Travel Scope can view the planets, Moon, star clusters and brighter deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy at night. The erect image star diagonal also makes the optical tube ideal for using as a spotting scope during the day. Setting up the telescope is a breeze; you’ll be observing in no time. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope and its accessories in just a few minutes. The adjustable tripod legs allow you to customize the telescope’s height or place it on raised surfaces like a picnic table. The total telescope kit weighs in at just 3. 3 pounds—perfect for impromptu observing sessions or transporting wherever life’s adventures take you. The Travel Scope 70 comes with two eyepieces (20 mm and 10 mm), 45° erect image diagonal, finderscope, and a travel backpack. The two eyepieces offer different magnifications to view your intended object. The erect image diagonal allows for right-side-up viewing ideal for terrestrial subjects but can also be used for celestial objects. The 5x24 finderscope will help you quickly center an object in your eyepiece for easier observing. Download Celestron’s Starry Night Software and learn about the night sky, celestial objects, and how to plan your next observing session. Celestron Starry Night Software is the premier astronomy software package on the market, providing resources and knowledge to view our solar system and beyond.
