The Celestron Travel Scope 80mm f/5 AZ Refractor Telescope Kit is designed for portability and ease-of-use for both astronomical and terrestrial use. Its refractor-style optical tube has a respectable aperture that gathers the amount of light required to ensure views of the moon and planets remain bright and clear. Included with this model of the Travel Scope is a universal smartphone digiscoping adapter that lets you capture photos and videos through the eyepieces for easy editing, enjoyment, and sharing.

A photo-style alt-az pan/tilt head easily mounts the OTA with a simple screw and has a single control handle that allows for smooth movement and locks the altitude in place for hands-free use to minimize vibration. Supporting it all is a photo-style tripod that collapses low enough for tabletop use and extends to full-sized height. The included erecting prism corrects views horizontally and laterally so the Travel Scope can be used as a conventional spotting scope, and it comes with to eyepieces offering 20x and 40x magnifications, although any 1.25" astronomical eyepiece may be used. Everything in this kit — OTA, tripod, head, and accessories — fits inside the included backpack to make it as portable possible.

Optical Tube

Thanks, I have a t ring combo from my old Cassegrain that I was hoping would work on this that I thought might be easier to use.

How do you set up the smartphone adapter

How do you set up the smartphone adapter
Asked by: Ethan
The smartphone adapter allows you to connect any smartphone to your telescope's eyepiece. The adapter is installed by clamping over the top of an eyepiece and held in position with the help of tightening knobs that securely locks your phone in place. Some large and/or bulky phone cases (including folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit in the adapter. Sincerely, Garrett at Celestron
