OPTICSPLANET STOCKS UP ON THEIR EXCLUSIVE CELESTRON TELESCOPES AND SPOTTING SCOPES!

Celestron has made a number of telescopes and spotting scopes exclusively for OpticsPlanet, with options available for nature and astronomy enthusiasts!

Northbrook, Illinois - August 31, 2011 - OpticsPlanet, Inc. (http://www.opticsplanet.com), the world's largest specialized internet retailer of telescopes, binoculars and spotting scopes, is happy to announce the return of the Celestron Ultima, Celestron PowerSeeker and Celestron Maksutov. These award-winning telescopes and spotting scopes are back by popular demand and available exclusively at opticsplanet.com, Tactical-Store.com, and OpticsforYou.com!

The Celestron Ultima Angled 80 Spotting Scope Package won a Brilliance Award in 2009 for Best Spotting Scope Under $200. The Ultima comes with everything nature observers need to get started, with an 80mm refractor featuring multi-coated optics and a durable design, perfect for hauling on a favorite hiking trail. A photographic tripod is included, so a clear, stable image can be achieved quickly and easily.

Like the Ultima, the Celestron PowerSeeker 80EQ Refractor Telescope Package also won a Brilliance Award in 2009. This Best Telescope for under $150 continues to be an outstanding value, with a plethora of features and high level performance at a low price. Minute adjusts are necessary to discover the many mysteries of space, so the included Celestron Motor Drive gives beginning astronomers the chance to star gaze like the pros.

For those looking to observe both terrestrial and astronomical objects, the Celestron C90 Mak Spotting Scope and Celestron 90mm Maksutov Spotting Scope Package are excellent choices. Both feature a 90mm aperture, which is especially large for spotting scopes in this price range. Large apertures provide brighter image, with more detail at greater magnifications. Hunters also love these spotting scopes for their outstanding range and low price.

OpticsPlanet is proud to have these Celestron Spotting Scopes and Telescopes back in their stores before the holiday season. Customers have loved these exclusive products since their debut, and the demand has never been higher.
