Description

Get a new perspective on nature and the Universe with the ideal day-to-night telescope, the special-edition Royal Observatory Greenwich Travel Scope 70. This refractor telescope includes a full-height tripod and accessories that pack up into a high-quality custom backpack—ready to go wherever your adventures take you.

Whether you take it along on your next camping trip or enjoy an impromptu backyard stargazing session, setting up the telescope is a breeze. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope and its accessories in just a few minutes. The adjustable tripod legs allow you to customize the telescope’s height or place it on a raised surface like a picnic table. 

By night, Travel Scope 70 delivers great views of the planets, the Moon, star clusters and brighter deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy. During the day, Travel Scope 70 doubles as a spotting scope. Enjoy amazing views of birds, wildlife, boats on the water, migrating whales, and so much more.

The entire telescope kit weighs just 3.3 pounds, so you can take it anywhere, hassle-free.

 

Manual Alt-azimuth Telescope

Navigate the sky confidently with Travel Scope 70’s intuitive pan handle. The alt-azimuth control with clutch allows you to point the telescope accurately and track celestial objects as they appear to move across the sky. Like a photographic tripod, you can move the clutch up/down or left/right to follow your object in the eyepiece.

 

Royal Observatory Greenwich Accessories Included

In addition to the 70mm refractor telescope, you will receive two eyepieces (20mm and 10mm), an 45° erect image diagonal, and a 5x24 finderscope. The two eyepieces offer different magnifications so you can view your subject at low or high power. The erect image diagonal allows for more comfortable viewing and right-side-up images. Lastly, the finderscope will help you locate objects and quickly center them in your telescope’s eyepiece.

Travel Backpack – Pack up your optical tube, tripod, eyepieces, and accessories safely and securely in the included custom backpack.
