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.
