Celestron produces high quality optics -- so be willing to pay some hefty prices for their high end telescopes. If you're interested in buying from their Explorascope and Powerseeker series of telescopes, then you will probably be able to find a telescope for less than $150. Telescopes from the Firstscope series, a quality choice for hobbyists, will run you between $150 and $300 depending on the size, power, and mount of the telescope. The Starhopper series is the next most expensive group of telescopes, topping out at close to $500 for the top of the line model. After that, Celestron's telescopes increase steeply in price, ranging in to the thousands of dollars. A Celestron telescope with computer tracking and a GPS system easily costs several thousand dollars, and Celestron professional sized models can cost over $10000.
