Get a new perspective on nature and the Universe with the ideal day-to-night telescope, Travel Scope 60 DX. This refractor telescope includes a full-height tripod and lots of bonus accessories, including a smartphone adapter so you can capture images and video through the eyepiece. It all packs up into a high-quality custom backpack — ready to go wherever your adventures take you. Whether you take it along on your next camping trip or enjoy an impromptu backyard stargazing session, setting up the telescope is a breeze.
Smartphone adapter and Bluetooth shutter release
Create your own images and video of celestial or terrestrial objects with the smartphone adapter. With its light, rigid frame, this accessory allows you to connect any smartphone to your Travel Scope’s eyepiece. The additional magnification provided by the eyepiece allows your phone to capture great images of the Moon and planets. This smartphone adapter installs easily by clamping over the top of an eyepiece. The smartphone is held in position with the help of tightening knobs that securely lock your phone in place. (NOTE: Some large and/or bulky phone cases (including folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit in the adapter.)
To capture the best image, Celestron has also provided a Bluetooth shutter release that allows you to trigger the camera’s shutter on any Android or iOS smartphone remotely, without disturbing the placement of your phone and telescope, for a perfectly steady shot.
Manual Alt-Azimuth telescope
Navigate the sky confidently with Travel Scope 60 DX’s intuitive pan handle. The Alt-Az control with clutch allows for smooth tracking and accurate pointing. Like a photographic tripod, you can move the clutch up, down, left, or right to follow your target in the eyepiece.
Pack up your optical tube, tripod, eyepieces, and accessories safely and securely in the included custom backpack.
