Refractor telescopes (also known as dioptrics) are probably what most of us think of when we hear the word telescope. Refractors have a long, thin tube in which light passes in a straight line from the front objective lens directly to the eyepiece, at the opposite end of the tube. Refractor telescopes have many advantages, including: Simplicity of design, which translates into reliability and ease of use. Little or no maintenance requirements. Excellent lunar, planetary and binary star viewing. High contrast images with no secondary mirror or diagonal obstruction. Sealed optical tube, to protect the optics and reduce air currents, which tend to degrade image quality. Permanently mounted and aligned objective lens. The 60mm (2.4") refractor is the most popular telescope size for beginning astronomy enthusiasts and for casual gift-giving. This size telescope is perfect for introducing newcomers to astronomy, at an affordable price. For astronomical observing, the 60mm refractor allows you to see lunar details, Saturn and its rings, Jupiter and its moons, the phases of Venus, larger globular clusters, bright double stars and some bright nebulae. After adding an optional solar filter, you can observe activity on the sun. In addition, a 60mm telescope can be used for terrestrial viewing, bringing the world closer to you and allowing you to observe wildlife, distant views and your environment. The 70mm models serve the beginner to intermediate observer who wants slightly more aperture than the 60mm models and allows you to see more detail on objects. Celestrons 80mm and 102mm refractor models are top choices for beginning observers who want to start with a more powerful telescope and for intermediate level astronomers. These instruments perform equally well for viewing within our solar system and for deep-sky observing. Starting with a more powerful telescope can be a good option when youre looking for an instrument to grow with as you explore the hobby of astronomy. Celestron offers two different options in refractor telescopes: the altazimuth mount and the equatorial mount. The economical altazimuth is the simplest type of mount, offering two motions: altitude (up and down) and azimuth (sideto-side), for an easily achieved full range of motion. Celestrons equatorial models use the German equatorial mount with setting circles and slow motion controls on both the right ascension (R.A.) and declination (DEC.) axes. These features make it easier to locate and track objects. While observing, youll notice that as the earth rotates on its axis, stationary stars appear to move across the sky. Thus, due to the earths rotation, the object youre viewing will drift out of view in both axes, over time. A telescope on an equatorial mount can be aimed at a celestial object and guided with the slow motion controls to follow the object across the sky and keep it in the field of view of your telescope.

Newtonian telescopes (also known as catoptrics) usually use a concave parabolic primary mirror (longer focal ratios may use spherical primaries) to collect and focus incoming light onto a flat secondary (diagonal) mirror. This secondary mirror reflects the image out of an opening at the side of the main tube and into the eyepiece.
Newtonian reflector telescopes offer a number of excellent features including: Freedom from most optical aberrations and delivery of very bright images. Reasonably compact and portable to focal lengths of 1000mm. Excellent performance observing faint deep-sky objects such as nebulae, remote galaxies and star clusters. Lowest cost per square inch of aperture due to use of mirrors rather than lenses. Generally fast focal ratios: f/4 to f/9. The 76mm (3") aperture of the Firstscope 76 models offer much of the performance of the Newtonian reflector design in a compact, highly portable instrument. The 114mm (4.5") Newtonian equatorial telescope is the most popular size telescope for the more serious beginning or intermediate level astronomy enthusiast, and for good reason. The large light gathering power of this 41/2" telescope makes it ideal for deep-sky observation of galaxies, star clusters and nebulae,as well as lunar and planetary observing. This makes for a very useful and versatile instrument that can take an observer from the very first time looking through a telescopes eyepiece, through years of observing interesting subjects near and far in the night sky. Celestron offers five different 114mm Newtonian equatorial telescopes, making it a sure bet that one of them will have just the combination of features and performance youre looking for.
