Due to high demand and global product shortages due to the pandemic, please call for availability.

This 60mm refractor is the least expensive astronomical telescope we offer. In this price range, telescopes are usually supplied with sub-standard .96" eyepieces, wobbly mounts, and optical deficiencies (eg. 30mm aperture stop). Not so with this model. It is the best sub-$100 60mm refractor we could find.
