DIY Telescopes

Looking for a great way to bring the stars down to earth?

Our DIY Telescopes program provides you with two Celestron CPC Series telescopes for three weeks to explore the ever-changing night sky. With full set-up instructions, a built-in telescope computer and an astronomy almanac, they make star-gazing easy and fun – even for the beginner.

With a built-in database of 40,000 objects, the telescope’s internal GPS receiver can pinpoint its exact location on earth and locate famous deep-sky objects from a few button presses.

Set your sights on Mars and see its polo icecaps; watch Jupiter’s big red spot and its wild storm systems; or look for Cassini’s Division in the rings of Saturn – all from the comfort of your nearest park or oval!

And if you’re a school outside of Perth’s metro area, there’s also free delivery and collection options available.

Supported by Rio Tinto, our DIY Telescopes are a great way to get amongst the stars!
