How far out can you see with this telescope?
As this telescope is 70mm in aperture, it will not be able to view anything outside of our solar system with clarity. To see a wider range of stars we recommend any telescope that is over 110mm in diameter.

We?re looking for a high-quality telescope for family use (celestial viewing only), with a sturdy stand (so kids can view once the image is scoped).
The Celestron AstroMaster 70 AZ Refractor Telescope does indeed have a sturdy tripod on which the telescope is located. The telescope itself is extremely easy to easy for quick viewing of the night sky.
