With the best day-to-night telescope, the Celestron Travel Scope 70 DX, gain a fresh perspective on the natural world and the cosmos. This refractor telescope comes with a full-height tripod and a tonne of extras, like a smartphone connector that enables you to record videos and take pictures through the eyepiece. Everything fits inside a top-notch, bespoke backpack that is prepared to travel wherever your adventures take you.
Setting up the telescope is simple, whether you plan to bring it along on your next camping trip or use it for a quick backyard stargazing session. You can put together the telescope and its accessories in a matter of minutes, even if it's your first time. The telescope's height can be adjusted, and its tripod legs allow you to set it down on elevated surfaces like a picnic table.
The planets, the Moon, star clusters, and brighter deep-sky objects like the Andromeda Galaxy and Orion Nebula are all beautifully visible at night via the Celestron Travel Scope 70 DX.
Enjoy breathtaking vistas of wildlife, boats on the ocean, whales migrating, and much more with Celestron Travel Scope 70 DX as a spotting scope during the day.
The full telescope system is only 3.3 pounds, making transportation simple.
Smartphone Adapter and Bluetooth shutter release
With the smartphone adapter, you can produce your own breathtaking pictures and videos of celestial or earthly phenomena. This add-on enables you to connect any smartphone to the eyepiece of your Travel Scope thanks to its compact, robust frame. Your phone can take stunning pictures of the Moon and planets thanks to the eyepiece's added magnification.
Installing this smartphone adapter is simple because it clamps over an eyepiece. Tightening knobs that lock your phone in place safely support holding the smartphone in place.
In order to get the finest possible shot, Celestron has also incorporated a Bluetooth shutter release that enables you to remotely activate the camera on any Android or iOS smartphone without moving your phone or telescope. NOTE: In order for the phone to fit in the adapter, some big and/or bulky phone cases, especially folio type cases, may need to be removed.
Alt-Azimuthal manual telescope
Utilize the simple pan handle on the Travel Scope 70 DX to confidently navigate the skies.
The clutch-equipped Alt-Az control enables precise pointing and fluid tracking.
To follow your target in the eyepiece, you can adjust the clutch up, down, and left, right, like you would a camera tripod.
Included Deluxe Accessories
The Travel Scope 70 DX comes with a full complement of optical accessories, including two eyepieces (20mm and 10mm), an upright image diagonal, a finderscope, a 2x Barlow lens, and a 1.25" Moon filter, in addition to the smartphone adapter and Bluetooth shutter release.
The two eyepieces' various magnifications let you choose between low and high power viewing of your subject.
Right-side-up images and more comfortable viewing are made possible by the erect image diagonal.
You may quickly and easily find objects and centre them in the telescope's eyepiece with the aid of the permanently mounted finderscope.
Last but not least, the Moon filter lessens glare and improves contrast on the Moon's surface.
Put your optical tube, tripod, eyepieces, and accessories in the supplied bespoke bag safely and securely.

Never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye or with an optic (unless you have the proper solar filter). Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result.
Never use your optic to project an image of the Sun onto any surface. Internal heat build-up can damage the optic and any accessories attached to it.
Never leave your optic unsupervised. Make sure an adult who is familiar with the correct operating procedures is with your optic at all times, especially when children are present.
