Celestron Travel Scope 70 DX Portable Refractor Telescope with Smartphone Adapter
Celestron's Travel Scope 70 DX, the perfect day-to-night telescope, will give users a fresh perspective on both the Universe and our home planet. To go with an adjustable height tripod, this refractor also comes with a smartphone adapter for capturing images and video using one of the two included eyepieces. The telescope, tripod, and all bonus accessories fit comfortably into a high quality custom backpack for convenient portability wherever you want to go.
Whether you take this 70mm Travel Scope along on your next camping trip or use it to enjoy an impromptu backyard stargazing session, you won't have to spend much time getting set up. Even complete beginners will be able to put this telescope and its accessories together in only a few minutes. A tripod with adjustable 1.25" aluminum legs lets you rest the telescope on raised surfaces like a picnic table, or customize its height to suit the individual needs of all observers.
The Travel Scope 70 DX has the versatility to be used as a terrestrial spotting scope during the day, while providing excellent views of the cosmos at night. Experience incredible nature scenes of birds, wildlife, migrating whales, and more, or point it at the night sky and see the Moon, planets, star clusters, and brighter deep sky objects such as the Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy like you've never seen them before.
Taken together, this entire telescope kit weighs in at just 3.3 lbs. for easy, stress-free transport to any location.
Smartphone Adapter and Bluetooth Shutter Release
With the included smartphone adapter, you'll be able to capture your own impressive images and video of both celestial and terrestrial objects. Featuring a lightweight but rigid frame, any smartphone can be attached to the Travel Scope's eyepiece using this accessory for a boost in magnification. This extra magnification greatly improves the lunar and planetary images captured by your phone. To install, simply clamp the smartphone adapter over the top of the eyepiece. Tightening knobs help to hold your phone in position and securely lock it in place. In addition, Celestron has also included a Bluetooth shutter release that remotely prompts any Android or iOS smartphone camera's shutter without distrupting the the arrangement of your phone and telescope, resulting in even better images. Please note that in order for your phone to fit in the adapter, you may need to remove the case, particularly if it is too large like folio style cases.
Manual Alt-Azimuth Telescope
Navigate the night sky with confidence using the Travel Scope 70 DX's innate pan handle. Alt-Az control with clutch promotes both smooth tracking and accurate pointing. The clutch adjusts up/down and left/right, like a photographic tripod, so you can follow your target in the eyepiece.
Deluxe Accessories Included
Besides the smartphone adapter and Bluetooth shutter release, the Travel Scope 70 DX also comes with a full assortment of optical accessories, including 20 mm and 10 mm eyepieces, an erect image diagonal, finderscope, 2x Barlow lens, and 1.25" Moon filter. Each eyepiece provides a different magnification so you can view your subject at low or high power. The erect image diagonal enables more comfortable viewing along with right-side-up images, while the permanently mounted finderscope helps you locate and quickly center objects in your telescope's eyepiece. Finally, the 1.25" Moon filter reduces glare and increases lunar surface contrast.
Pack your optical tube, tripod, eyepieces, and all additional accessories up safely and securely in the included custom backpack.
