Interest in astronomy grows during pandemic

Techstination feature for Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Celestron is celebrating its 60th anniversary…and the company that has brought astronomy and more to so many hobbyists has been seeing lots of interest during the pandemic.    National Sales Manager Jason Mulek…

“At the beginning of the pandemic, say in March,  I think like a lot of retailers, we were nervous.   We didn’t know what to expect and what was going to happen.   And as we got into the next couple of months of it, we just saw this explosion of growth in our category.  Individuals and families that are stuck and home and they want to get outside and they want to do things as a family.  And our category of product was exactly what they are looking for.”

There are telescopes for a wide range users from experienced astronomers…to beginners…and the latest Star Sense Explorer models can use smart phones to make it easy.
