Celestron Telescope Review

The modern Celestron optic company makes not only cassegrain telescope, but all kind of telescopes, microscopes, binoculars, and special nighttime aide. My favorite binocular is the Celestron SkyMaster 15x70 binoculars. These are large enough to gather enough light to see the green color of the Orion nebula, the pale blue of the Pleiades, or the vast grey expanse of the Andromeda nebula without being so heavy that your arms get tired. All this for under $100 retail!
