Celestron Travel Scope 50 overview

  • 1Description

The Celestron Travel Scope 50mm f/7.2 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 copious amounts of light, and a shorter focal length that produces a moderate magnification potential. 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 to 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 — fit inside the included canvas backpack to make it as portable possible.

    Celestron Travel Scope 50 reviews

    Travel Scope 50mm f/7.2 AZ Refractor Telescope Kit is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great telescope! Bought for my 6 year old. Great starter telescope. The back pack is a plus.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I took this piece to Dubai, so if I want to exchange it I would need to transport it back. I am not sure if the piece I have is faulty or if the design is bad, but the image is blurred no matter what one looks at. I tried looking at objects within 1000m / 3/4 mile distance, I tried the young Moon, to no avail. Do not waste your money!
