Celestron PowerSeeker 70AZ Refractor $99.99 (Was $124.95)

This sub-$100 telescope is great for those looking for an entry-level telescope. It rests on a yoke mount and comes with two eyepieces (4mm and 20mm), a finderscope, and a 3x Barlow lens that magnifies viewing power. It’s easy to store, transport, and set up. Plus, it’s portable and lightweight for stargazing on the go.

Gosky 12×50 Monocular Telescope $95.19 (Was $118.59)

If stars aren’t you’re thing and you’d rather observe what lands in your backyard, this monocular telescope is for you. A 12x magnification, 50mm lens, and a wide field of view lets you see mourning doves in the trees or a pesky squirrel at the bird feeder. It’s also waterproof and fogproof thanks to argon purging, and a rubber body prevents breakage from rogue falls.

PopSci AstroMaster 80AZ S Basic Smartphone Adapter & Bluetooth $215.96 (Was $239.95)

Take stargazing into the modern age. You don’t even need experience with a telescope to get the most out of using this device. Compatible with Bluetooth and smartphones, this refractor telescope has an 80mm aperture for better viewing. And the kit comes with a tripod, 2x Barlow lens, moon filter, and more, so you can make the most of the stargazing experience without missing a nebula.
