Smartphone adapter and Bluetooth shutter release
Create your own 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 by clamping 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. (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.)
To capture the best image, 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, for a perfectly steady shot.
Manual Alt-Azimuth telescope
Navigate the sky confidently with Travel Scope 60 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 up, down, left, or right to follow your target in the eyepiece.
Deluxe Accessories Included
In addition to the smartphone adapter and Bluetooth shutter release, Travel Scope 60 DX includes a full selection of optical accessories, including two eyepieces (20mm and 8mm), an erect image diagonal, a finderscope, and a 3x Barlow lens. 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 and quickly center them in your telescope's eyepiece.
Pack up your optical tube, tripod, eyepieces, and accessories safely and securely in the included custom backpack.
