Designed with American innovation for beginner stargazers, the Celestron Travel Scope 70DX is a professionally engineered refractor telescope that is perfect for celestial or terrestrial viewing on the go. It’s the perfect telescope for adults and kids to use together with its fully-coated, high-quality glass optics, including a refractor-style 70mm objective lens. The aperture allows higher-resolution viewing, without adding a lot of extra weight. Added coating on the large 70mm lens allows more light to enter, providing sharper, crisper viewing of celestial and terrestrial objects during the day or at night.
The Celestron telescope for beginners is designed with several operating features that make it exceptionally user-friendly. Our precision manufacturing standards and high-quality materials are unmatched in the industry. We’ve included two quality eyepieces (20mm and 10mm), 2x Barlow lens, and a star diagonal for crisp low- and high-power viewing during the day or at night, allowing you to enjoy close-ups of wildlife in nature or stargaze with family and friends.
This telescope also comes with a smartphone adapter that allows you to connect any smartphone to any telescope eyepiece with an outside diameter of 45 mm or smaller for digiscoping opportunities. The additional magnification provided by the eyepiece allows your phone to capture great images of the Moon and planets. 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.
