The Orion GoScope III 70mm Refractor Travel Telescope is designed to pack up and go whenever you hit the road, the trail, or the air. It excels for daytime birding, nature study, and scenic long-distance viewing, and will take you way beyond the Earth's horizon after sunset for some casual nighttime stargazing and Moon-watching. Plus, this value-packed Telescope Kit is loaded with fun extra accessories every stargazer will enjoy.
Built around a 70mm-aperture lens system, the Orion GoScope III 70mm Refractor is designed to obtain portable and detailed images of distant subjects. The telescope sets up in seconds on the included retractable aluminum tripod which allows smooth, easy pointing of the telescope. The 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 III refractor comes with a correct-image prism diagonal so things seen through the telescope appear right-side-up and correct left-ro-right. Both a 20mm and 9mm Kellner eyepiece (1.25") are included for two different magnification options. An included 5x24 finder scope helps to aim the GoScope III. This complete observational system tucks away neatly in the included backpack for on-the-go action!
In addition to the complete telescope, the Orion GoScope III 70mm Refractor Travel Telescope Kit also comes with a great set of extra accessories at an amazing low price.
