Product details

Study the night sky wherever your travels take you with the highly portable and affordable Travel Scope 70 Refractor Telescope, from Celestron. This quality instrument boasts fully coated optics and an Altazimuth mount.

See for yourself

If you have always felt curious about the constellations or are a keen amateur astronomer, you'll simply be in awe of the night sky thanks to this clever instrument.

An included custom backpack holds both the scope and the tripod securely while travelling. Plus the Celestron Travel Scope 70 comes with a full-size aluminium photographic tripod for stability while viewing.

Remarkable views

The Celestron TravelScope 70 can be used to observe land and the night sky as the image is erect. Finding your view is easy even at the 40x magnification thanks to the included 5x24 finderscope. The large 70 mm aperture lets in plenty of light, and two eyepieces are included: a 20x ocular lens and a 40x ocular lens.

Away from the city smog the potential of the Celestron Travel Scope 70 Refractor Telescope is truly realised - it's a must have if you are planning a trip to a scarcely populated destination.
