This Black Friday you can save on a high-quality telescope. Whether you’re looking for one as a gift, for yourself or searching for your next upgrade, you’ll discover the best instrument for you in our top pick of deals.

With great offers on Celestron’s PowerSeeker range of telescopes to Orion’s StarBlast II 4.5 reflector, we’ve rounded up the very best offers on all-arounder telescopes that are not just great for beginners but also seasoned skywatchers looking for a grab-and-go telescope.

Each telescope in the Black Friday sale comes supplied with eyepieces, a Barlow lens to reach the full optical limits of the tube assembly, mount, tripod, star diagonal, finderscope as well as additional add-ons like a moon map or astronomy software. It has never been easier to find an all-inclusive instrument at a bargain price.

Currently out of stock at most retailers, our star product is the stunning brass Celestron Ambassador 80AZ telescope, which can be snapped up at a discounted price of $899 at Amazon — that’s 10% off the retail price of $999.95. Order now and you’ll get it by Dec. 2 if you opt for fast delivery.

It’s while stocks last though, so if you miss out on this deal, you can snap up the telescope for the same price at B&H.
