Celestron Travel Scope 70 DX f/5.7 Doublet Portable Refractor Telescope with Backpack

The Celestron Travel Scope 70 DX f/5.7 Doublet Portable Refractor Telescope with Backpack: It is time to get a new perspective on nature and the Universe with the ideal day-to-night telescope, the Travel Scope 70 DX Backpack Kit, with a Smartphone adapter,  Bluetooth shutter release, and other accessories, all fitting in a handy Backpack! 

This 70 mm refractor telescope includes a full height tripod and lots of bonus accessories. Of note is 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. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope and its accessories in just a few minutes. The adjustable tripod legs allow you to customize the telescope’s height or place it on raised surfaces like a picnic table.

By night, Travel Scope 70 DX delivers great views of the planets, the Moon, star clusters and brighter deep-sky objects like the Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy. During the day, Travel Scope 70 DX doubles as a spotting scope. Enjoy amazing views of birds, wildlife, boats on the water, migrating whales, and so much more.

The entire telescope kit weighs just 3.3 pounds, so you can take it anywhere, hassle-free.

Smartphone adapter and Bluetooth shutter release

Create your own stunning 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.  Your smartphone is held in position with the help of tightening knobs that will securely lock your phone in place. 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. NOTE: Some large and/or bulky phone cases (including folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit into the adapter.

Manual Altitude-Azimuth telescope

Navigate the sky confidently with the Travel Scope 70 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 in an up/down, left/right fashion to follow your object in the eyepiece.

Deluxe Accessories Included

In addition to the smartphone adapter and Bluetooth shutter release, the Travel Scope 70 DX includes a full selection of optical accessories, including two eyepieces (20 mm and 10 mm), an erect image diagonal, a finderscope, a 2x Barlow lens, and a 1.25-inch Moon filter. The two eyepieces offer different magnifications so you can view your subject at low or high power. The erect image diagonal allows for more comfortable viewing and right-side-up images. The permanently mounted finderscope will help you locate objects and quickly center them in your telescope’s eyepiece. Lastly, the Moon filter reduces glare and increases contrast on the surface of the Moon.

Travel Backpack

Pack up your optical tube, tripod, eyepieces, and accessories safely and securely in the included custom backpack.
