Celestron Powerseeker 60mm (2.4") Refractor Telescope

Celestron Powerseeker 60mm (2.4") Refractor Telescope

$89.99

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.
