We sat down with Jarred Donkersley, Celestron’s Assistant Marketing Manager, to discuss how anyone can get started with stargazing, why astronomy is important,and his favorite space missions.
Celestron has been in business for over 50 years. How did it get started?
It all started when Tom Johnson, our founder, discovered an inexpensive way to mass produce the corrector plate of the schmidt-cassegrain telescope, making wide, short tube designs affordable for amateur astronomers. Since then there have been countless innovations, but we’ve always stayed true to our roots and dedicated to the hobby and our customers.
