Style: Travel Scope 70 with Backpack This telescope was designed with traveling in mind while offering exceptionalvalue. The Travel Scope is made of the highest quality materials to ensurestability and durability. All this adds up to a telescope that gives you alifetime of pleasure with a minimal amount of maintenance. Featuring a compactand portable design with ample optical performance, the Travel Scope is idealfor terrestrial as well as casual astronomical observation. The Celestron 21035 Travel Scope 70 is a compact 70mm refractor telescopeoptimized for portability and convenience. The telescope, the tripod, and allthe accessories fit conveniently into a padded backpack style soft carryingcase. The complete accessory package includes a 45 degree correct image prism,a 20mm eyepiece for 20X magnification, and a 10mm eyepiece for 40X. The fullyillustrated instruction manual is supplemented by a copy of “The Sky X”astronomy software that turns your PC into a virtual planetarium. With a focal length of 400mm and a focal ratio of f/5.7, the Travel Scope 70compares surprisingly well with popular f/5 “Short Tube 80” refractors but ata much lower cost. The Travel Scope 70 uses a number of plastic components tokeep the cost and weight down, including a plastic focuser and plastic lensshade, but the all glass lenses deliver beautiful views of backyard birdsduring the daytime and lovely views of the Moon and stars at night. The Travel Scope 70 offers daytime views that compare with more expensivespotting scopes. The 20mm eyepiece gives 20X magnification and a 2.5 degreefield of view, with plenty of crisp detail when I’m looking at backyard birds.The travel Scope 70 is also quick and easy to set up at night. The deep orangeglow of the recent Lunar Eclipse was simply gorgeous, and I was even able totake some pictures using the Travel Scope 70 and a PowerShot camera. When Ilook at Jupiter using the 10mm eyepiece (40X magnification) I can easily seefour moons near the planet. And rich field views of the Milky Way are often attheir best in a small scope with a wide field of view. The tripod included with the Travel Scope 70 is described as a “full sizephoto tripod”, but I like it best as a table-top tripod with the legs keptshort. The tripod is designed to be light and compact, but that means the legsare thin and wobbly when fully extended. –_Jeff Phillips_ Pros: Light, portable, and affordable Excellent wide field views Padded backpack style case High and low power eyepieces The Sky X software included Cons: Light weight tripod Plastic finder and focuser
