Designed for the first time buyer - offering exceptional value, the AstroMaster series features a compact and portable design with ample optical performance to excite any newcomer to the world of amateur astronomy.


Which AstroMaster Telescope model best fits your needs?
If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the AstroMaster Series is for you. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land and sky. The AstroMaster Series produce bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments.

This telescope has an aperture of 90mm.


The AstroMaster 90 EQ features a German Equatorial mount that will help you view stars, nebulae, star clusters, and planets. A built-in setting circle aids in locating these objects.


When used for astronomical viewing, AstroMasters yield breathtaking views of the Moon, Saturn with its ring structure, Jupiter and its belts and moons, nebulae and star clusters.


Every instrument features all glass optical elements, as well as smooth operating steel tripod mountings featuring manual motion controls. All models feature coated optics for enhanced image brightness and clarity.

I bought this telescope because my 5 year old loves outerspace,but I didn't want to go get some piece of garbage from [...] that has less power than my cell phone camera. I know nothing about telescopes, so I cant really compare this to others. However, if you are a first timer who wants to get into stargazing, but not quite sure what to buy, this is probably the route you want to go. It is relatively inexpensive, has enough powert to see real cool stuff up there, is easy to set up, and is pretty good quality. It is a little heavy, so Dad, you're going to have to carry it in and out for junior. Do your research and ask questions, but for first timers, I think this one is a good starting point.

    This is a holiday gift for my son and young grandson. While a precision instrument it doesn't appear too daunting to use. I am sure they will get many hours of enjoyment looking at the night sky. I was amazed at how quickly it shipped and am totally pleased with the product and this company..

          This was a gift from my wife for my 76th birthday.
          I thought this was going to be a major undertaking,
          but it proved me wrong. This is my second scope over
          my lifetime. I'm setting down going through the instructions
          before I go out here in Maine. We have the night sky, ocean,
          and mountains to look at much closer than ever before.
          Best gift ever . Larry Harr

            Customer Q & A

            Q1: How long is the tube in inches?

            A: The tube is roughly 36 inches depending on the extension of the eyepiece and whether or not you would leave the dew shield on the front of the telescope.

            Q2: What is the highest possible magnification eye piece I can purchase?

            A: The highest useful magnification will be a 5mm eyepiece.
