Accessories Included

The Travel Scope 80 comes with two eyepieces (20mm and 10mm), erect image diagonal, finderscope, a smartphone adapter, and a travel backpack. The two eyepieces offer different magnifications to view your intended object. The erect image diagonal allows for right-side-up viewing ideal for terrestrial subjects but can also be used for celestial objects. The permanently mounted finderscope will help you quickly center an object in your eyepiece for easier observing.

Smartphone Adapter – Image celestial or terrestrial objects with this telescope smartphone adapter. With its light, rigid frame, this accessory allows you to connect any smartphone to any telescope eyepiece with an outside diameter of 45 mm or smaller. 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. Some large and/or bulky phone cases (including folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit in the adapter.
