This kit includes a Smartphone adapter and Bluetooth shutter release. With these, you can take photos with your smartphone and release the shutter using the Bluetooth remote release, without having to touch the phone or telescope.
Now, you can create your own stunning images and video of celestial or terrestrial objects with the smartphone adapter. With its light, rigid frame, this accessory allows you to connect any smartphone to your Travel Scope’s eyepiece. The additional magnification provided by the eyepiece allows your phone to capture great images of the Moon and planets. This smartphone adapter installs easily. It simply clamps over the top of an eyepiece. The smartphone is held in position with the help of tightening knobs that securely lock your phone in place.
To obtain the best images, Celestron has also provided a Bluetooth shutter release that allows you to trigger the camera’s shutter on any Android or iOS smartphone remotely, without disturbing the placement of your phone and telescope. NOTE: Some large and/or bulky phone cases (including folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit in the adapter.
Navigate the sky confidently with Celestron's Travel Scope 70 DX’s intuitive pan handle. The Alt-Az control with clutch allows for smooth tracking and accurate pointing. Like a photographic tripod, you can move the clutch in both an up/down, and a left/right fashion to follow your object in the eyepiece.
This Travel Scope 70 DX refractor kit from Celestron includes a full selection of optical accessories, including two eyepieces (20 mm and 10 mm), an erect image diagonal, a finderscope, a 2x Barlow lens, and a 1.25” Moon filter. 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. The permanently mounted finderscope will help you locate objects because it has a wide field of view and lower magnification. And the Moon filter reduces glare and increases contrast on the surface of the Moon.
Pack up your optical tube, tripod, eyepieces, and accessories safely and securely in the included custom backpack. It goes with you!
