Celestron Telescopes

Exploring the stars has long interested mankind since the dawn of time.  At Robbies Hobbies we can help your budding explorer learn the amazing depth of the universe right in your own backyard.  We are proud to carry this holiday season the Celestron line of telescopes for your hobby astronomers.

If you are just getting started the Cometron First Telescope is a great telescope for those new to searching the stars.

It is very easy to observe with, the user simply navigates the night sky by moving the tube in the direction of their desired object, making the viewing experience a snap!

The Cometron FirstScope provides bright, sharp views of comets and other celestial objects, and renders the Moon’s mountains and craters in crisp detail. And thanks to its wide field of view, you’ll be able to observe the brightest part of the comet and its tail or favorite deep-sky objects like the Orion Nebula.

The Cometron FirstScope offers several upgrades from the original Celestron FirstScope, including 2 Kellner eyepieces and a 5×24 finderscope.

The compact design makes it easy enough to take with you on your next outdoor adventure.


If you are looking for something more advanced for your stargazing be sure to check out the Celestron Inspire 70AZ.  The lightest telescope in the Inspire series! The Inspire 70AZ is the ultimate telescope for the novice to the intermediate astronomer, offers easier transport and storage, and is packed with features never seen before on entry-level telescopes. Inspire features fully coated glass optics, a solid altazimuth mount with a unique asymmetrical design, a sturdy steel tripod with integrated fold-up accessory tray, an integrated smartphone adapter, built-in red LED flashlight, large projected reticle finderscope, erect image optics, and a focus micrometer for easily returning to the same focus point.

The Inspire has the easiest setup of any telescope in its class. Simply pop open the tripod legs, turn the lock knob on the accessory tray, and attach the telescope tube to the base using the quick release dovetail mount. You are now ready to observe!
