With the Celestron TravelScope 50 telescope and backpack kit, sharp views of the night sky are always close at hand. This high quality astronomical telescope with coated glass optics is ideal for observing the Moon, planets, and even bright objects beyond our Solar System like the Orion Nebula. TravelScope 50 is quick and easy to set up, making it the perfect choice for beginning amateur astronomers of all ages. The all-in-one kit contains everything you need for a night under the stars, including a full-height tripod and lots of accessories.
Packed and ready
Your entire telescope kit—including the 50mm refractor optical tube and full-size aluminum tripod—packs neatly into the included canvas backpack. This sturdy pack offers ample storage for your telescope accessories, plus additional room to add to your collection. The complete kit weighs just 5 lb, so you can take this telescope anywhere.
Inside the backpack, you’ll find all the accessories you to begin observing right away. The scope includes a 2x20 optical finderscope that will help you can aim and center objects, a diagonal for a more comfortable viewing angle, two eyepieces, and a 3x Barlow lens.
Nature by day, the Universe by night
The Celestron TravelScope 50 is the perfect telescope for your next camping trip because you can enjoy it from day to night. Some telescopes flip or mirror-reverse images, which is fine for astronomical observing, but doesn’t allow you to view daytime objects. The TravelScope 50 is equipped with a correct image diagonal to provide right-side-up images. Throw this scope into its lightweight backpack and bring it along on your next hike. You can catch up-close views of birds, wildlife, or boats on the water. Of course, when you’re gathered around the campfire after the Sun goes down, you can explore Jupiter’s moons, Saturn’s rings, craters on the Moon, and all your favorite celestial objects.
High power, low power—you decide
Want to see more of your subject with a wider field of view or punch in with high magnification? The choice is yours with the Celestron TravelScope 50’s two included eypieces and 3x Barlow lens. The included 20mm is a must-have in any astronomer’s eyepiece kit; with low magnification, it’s ideal for viewing larger objects like the Moon and the Orion Nebula. Switch to the 8mm eyepiece to provide higher powered views.
Craving even more magnification? Add the 3x Barlow lens to either eyepiece (or any additional 1.25” eyepieces you might purchase) to instantly triple its magnification. You get a total of four magnifications to choose from, so you can enjoy multiple views of any subject.
