This reflector telescope is great for those getting started on their galactic gaze journey. It features a fully-coated glass 130mm optic lens, a sturdy and lightweight German Equatorial frame, two eyepieces, a StarPointer red dot finderscope, and an adjustable tripod for hands-free viewing. Two slow-motion control knobs allow you to make small, precise adjustments to pinpoint each of Jupiter’s moons. And, an included free download of Starry Night astronomy software allows you to gain more knowledge about what you see in the sky.

Another favorite—for no particular reason—is the Popular Science x Celestron AstroMaster 80mm Refractor Telescope, on sale for $215.96.
