Celestron Astromaster 70AZ
If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the AstroMaster Series is for you. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land sky. The Astromaster Series produce bright, clear images of the Moon and Planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the Rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. For views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, we recommend the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors.

Pretty good if you wanna look at the moon, anything past that...no ways.
It says you can see the rings of Saturn...maybe in the clearest of skies, but not in the city. Spying on the neighbor...very good! Looking at the moon...Very good.
