The Celestron Travel Scope 70 was designed for easy travel while still offering a tremendous value for the dollar. This fine portable telescope is made of the highest quality materials and, with care, should last a lifetime. The Travel Scope has a 70mm Refractor Telescope that yields brighter and sharper images than some 60mm telescopes. It comes with both 10mm and 20mm eye pieces for terrestrial and celestial viewing and also has a 5 x 24 Finderscope for spotting distant objects more easily.
The Travel Scope's optical glass elements are all coated to provide clear, crisp images. It features an Erect Image Prism that allows you to view images right-side up and has a smooth-functioning Altazimuth mount that makes it easier to find an object in the sky.
We compared the Celestron Travel Scope to another 70mm scope and all agreed that visual clarity and contrast were far better with this model. Whether at home or out in the field, the Celestron Travel Scope is easy to set up, and its full-size tripod makes it very easy to operate.
The Travel Scope 70 comes complete with a pre-assembled, aluminum, full-size photographic tripod with a standard camera mount screw for a stable platform. No tools are required for assembly and the telescope is carried and stored in its own convenient backpack.
Weight 3.3 lbs., tripod extends to 42". Two year warranty.
