    If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the AstroMaster Series is for you. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land and sky.

    The AstroMaster Series produce bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. For views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, we recommend the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors.

    "Case is good....No complaints really....All in all though, I think Celestron's done a nice job on their 94004 case - especially if you're a Nexstar 8SE owner - and am looking forward to field testing it soon!...Fit my telescope fine and is well padded with some ok storage."
