The Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope Kit
The Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope Kit features all coated glass optical elements, so you experience nothing but the clearest, crispest images during both celestial and terrestrial observations. The erect image diagonal and smooth altazimuth mount ensures that you can correctly orientate your views and track objects with supreme ease and comfort. Furthermore, this exclusive package contains not only the standard 10mm and 20mm eyepieces and The Sky X – First Light Edition CD-ROM (featuring a 10,000 object database, colour images, custom sky chart printing and more), but also includes an additional 4mm eyepiece and 3x Barlow Lens to boost your viewing power.
Let's get this straight - The Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope Kit is not an astronomical telescope per se, yet you can do some astronomical observations with it with care. This is a scope that is intended to sling over your back, use as a spotting scope for bird watching, terrestrial scenic views and some night time astronomical use. The supplied lenses are also excellent and give a nice sharp view of the Orion Nebula, some of Jupiter's moons and Saturn, for example. So if it is a multi-use scope that you require then this is for you. And for the price you pay, even with the rather poor tripod that comes with it that makes night time astronomy a little tricky, you still get a great versatile scope that will cope with most daylight viewing well, and with some care also night time viewing too.
