Product Highlights
  • 400mm f/5.7 Achromatic Refractor
  • Manual Altazimuth Mount

The Celestron Travel Scope is a quality, easy-to-use medium refractor for use on the go.  Its 2.8" objective lens is sufficient for very pleasant use as a spotting scope, and it is combined with a 45° erect image diagonal which is well suited to that purpose.  The Travel Scope's also practical as an astronomical scope for lunar, planetary, and wide star field viewing-as a 400mm f/5.7 refractor design, each of these pursuits will be quite pleasurable.

Celestron includes a pair of 50° apparent field 1.25" eyepieces, but you can of course use any 1.25" eyepiece you like.  Add an optional 90° star diagonal for high-overhead viewing, or a straight through erecting porro prism for terrestrial viewing from elevated positions.

A 5x24 finderscope with quick-release bracket and full-size pan/tilt tripod round out the Travel Scope package, and the whole assembly fits into a dedicated backpack Celestron designed for simple storage and packing.
