Q: QuestionHow well does the Celestron telescope work for seeing galaxies and planets like Uranus & Neptune?
Asked by 888888888888888.
- A:Answer You can easily see the Andromeda Galaxy, M81 & M82 through the AstroMaster LT 70AZ telescope from a dark sky site. The outer planets such as Uranus and Neptune would appear as a very, very tiny dot if any. You will be able to see Jupiter's four brightest moons and Saturn's rings.

Q: QuestionI live by the ocean and want to view the boats and sea life. Is this telescope good for that?
Asked by cat.
- A:Answer The AstroMaster LT 70AZ refractor telescope will allow you to view boats and marine life; however, it does not come with an erect image diagonal. Images will be seen corrected right-side up, but it will be backwards from left to right–like looking in a mirror.

Q: Questionis the celestron astromaster lt 70AZ the same as the celestron powerseeker 70AZ I want to get one for my adult daughter for her birthday, but not sure which one is better. it would be of course for planets stars moon
Asked by shar.
- A:Answer No, there are some differences. While both models are lightweight, portable, easy to set up, have similar apertures, and able to resolve Saturn's rings, Jupiter's four largest moons, the AstroMaster LT 70AZ has a more rugged design and uses a pan handle to point the telescope. The optical tube can easily be removed from the dovetail holder. The PowerSeeker 70AZ is an entry-level model designed for casual observing at an affordable price. The optics are fully coated and will provide clear and sharp views. You can't go wrong with either model.
