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!

The whole family 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 III 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 III's custom backpack and small stature makes portable stargazing and daytime spotting a convenient reality, without compromising quality.

The affordable Orion GoScope III 70mm Refractor Travel Telescope features a 70mm achromatic lens system for sharp images of distant subjects. The entire refractor telescope setup and all included accessories fit in the custom-designed backpack carry case, making the GoScope III an ideal grab-and-go refractor. Its light weight of just 4.25 lbs. makes it easy to take the telescope 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 included compact tripod can be adjusted to hold the GoScope III refractor optical tube as low as 17.75" up to a 43.5" maximum height when the tripod legs are fully extended. For taller stargazers, the lightweight GoScope III can easily be placed on a table or other raised surface for comfortable use.

The GoScope II 70mm includes two anti-reflection coated 1.25" Kellner eyepieces to provide two different magnifcation options right out of the box. The included 20mm eyepiece provides a 20-power image, and a shorter 9mm focal length eyepiece that yields more powerful 44x views. Using both eyepieces is a great way to learn about magnification, and helps you enjoy interesting sights in the sky. Beginners can start observing with the lower-power eyepiece to scan the skies easily, and then boost power up to 44x with the 9mm eyepiece for closer looks.

The included 5x24 finder scope makes it easy to aim the GoScope III.

The 5x24 finder scope has a 24mm lens in the front that collects light, and it has 5-power magnification so you can aim the telescope easily. After following a simple alignment procedure, use the 5x24 finder scope to aim the GoScope III at interesting objects like the Moon and stars at night, and at daytime targets like birds, boats on water, and scenery.

A 45 correct-image diagonal provides a bright, correctly oriented daytime view.

This convenient diagonal makes it easy to track moving birds and wildlife during the day, and also planets and the Moon at night since it gives you a view that matches your regular vision. Just insert the diagonal into the telescope's focuser, and then put one of the two included eyepieces into the 45 diagonal and you're ready to focus on stars, the Moon, and more!

The included MoonMap 260 lets you learn the names of craters and other features on the Moon.

The pleasantly portable GoScope III 70mm Travel Telescope comes with the useful Orion MoonMap 260.  You'll enjoy looking at the Moon with the GoScope III telescope, then using the MoonMap 260 to learn the official names of the interesting craters, mountains, and other features you've seen. It will even show you where various spacecraft have landed on the Moon's surface!

The GoScope III and included accessories all fit in the specially designed backpack case.

The Orion GoScope III 70mm Refractor Travel Telescope is a complete observational system that tucks away neatly in its specially designed backpack. With the 70mm telescope, tripod, 45 diagonal, two eyepieces, 5x24 finder scope and MoonMap 260 packed inside, the backpack remains nice and light for easy portability.

You will find a lot of uses for the respectable optics of the Orion GoScope III 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!
