The Celestron Cometron FirstScope 76 Telescope is a compact, lightweight telescope that's perfect for beginners looking to experience the magic of a dazzling comet, planet, or nebula. This tabletop Dobsonian-style telescope includes a spherical mirror with a generous 76mm of aperture. It provides bright, sharp views of comets and other celestial objects, and renders the Moon's mountains and craters in crisp detail.
