Item #  11044

Have you ever planned a road-trip in the family truckster and realized that everyone's "must-have" luggage leaves precious little spare room for a telescope? Orion has the answer!

You can still enjoy sharp daytime terrestrial views and night sky observations while on the road, and save storage space in the car by bringing along the pleasantly portable Orion GoScope II 70mm Refractor Travel Telescope. It's a versatile 70mm-aperture refractor telescope designed to pack up and go whenever you hit the road, the trail, or even the air. The GoScope II's custom backpack and small stature makes portable stargazing and daytime spotting a convenient reality, without compromising quality. 

The entire refractor telescope setup, including field tripod, two 1.25" Kellner eyepieces (25mm and 10mm), 45 correct-image diagonal, and 5x24 finder scope fits in the custom-designed backpack, making the GoScope II an ideal grab-and-go refractor you can take virtually anywhere. It excels for daytime birding, nature study, and scenic long-distance viewing, and can also take you on visual adventures beyond the Earth's horizon after sunset for some casual nighttime stargazing and Moon-watching.

The affordable Orion GoScope II 70mm Refractor Travel Telescope features a 70mm achromatic lens system for sharp images of distant subjects. The included 45 correct-image diagonal provides a bright, correctly oriented daytime view for easy tracking of birds and wildlife in motion. Two included 1.25" Kellner eyepieces provide a variety of magnifications right out of the box. The included 25mm eyepiece provides a 16x power image, while the shorter focal length 10mm eyepiece yields 40x power views.

The Orion GoScope II 70mm Refractor Travel Telescope is a complete observational system that tucks away neatly in its specially designed backpack! Plus, the whole telescope weighs just 3.5 lbs. for easy and convenient portability.

You will find a lot of uses for the respectable optics of the Orion GoScope II 70mm Refractor Travel Telescope, and a lot of times and places to use them, day or night. For the price, it's hard to beat this nifty little refractor telescope.
