Celestron was started in 1960 by Tom Johnson. Tom was searching for the right telescope to introduce his two young sons to astronomy, and since he didn't find what he was looking for, he decided to build one from scratch. Tom's first telescope was a 6" reflector, but that was just the beginning. Before long the company, initially called Valor Electronics, was offering Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes as large as 22" to a public hungry for a good quality, yet portable telescope. By 1970, Tom had figured out a way to mass-produce Schmidt-Cassegrain optics at a reasonable price, and not long afterwards, the revolutionary Celestron C8 was born. The rest , as they say, is history!
Today, Celestron designs and sells a dizzying array of telescopes, binoculars, spotting scopes and astronomical accessories. Celestron has also grown significantly in the area of outdoor and science products. They have a wonderful line of microscopes, and their GPS assisted devices for golfers, hikers, travelers, and those who have a tendency to lose their car in large parking lots, have become very popular.
