The NexStar from Celestron is known as one of the world’s finest telescope due to the convenience that it can provide. This is also a classic 8-inch model that has innovated the way amateur astronomers use telescopes back in the 70s. The product is still known to have the orange tube design but has added features that make it way better for beginners to enjoy as well. The large aperture of the product provides a clear view of the moon and the rest of the planets, making it perfect for viewing the deep sky at night. The product also has a wedge for attaching cameras.
