How We Pick and Test
- Size matters: We look for Telescopes with manageable sizes that are easy to carry and store, and that have large, stable tripods that make them easy to set up.
- Eyepiece: We look for wide-field eyepieces that are easier to keep aligned for astrophotography.
- Eye relief: We look for eyepieces with 11 to 14 mm of eye relief (the distance from top to bottom of the eye, between the eyepiece and your eye).
- Focus knob: We look for telescopes with focus knobs that can be positioned either above or below the eyepiece.
- Technical testing: We test each telescope’s aperture, focal length, and field of view using objective testing.
And the winers:
- Best Overall Telescope: Gskyer Telescope, 70mm Aperture 400mm AZ Mount Astronomical Refracting Telescope
- Best Value Telescope: Celestron - PowerSeeker 127EQ Telescope - Manual German Equatorial Telescope
- Best Saving Product: Celestron - 70mm Travel Scope - Portable Refractor Telescope -
