TravelScope 60 – Solar System Edition

Celestron TravelScope 60 Scope of supply

Partielle Sonnenfinsternis in Rooisand / Namibia, 2006

A similar view – but with a larger percentage of the sun covered – will be visible for the partial solar eclipse over europe on March 20th.
Shown is an Animation from 2006, taken with a Zeiss APQ Refractor

Thanks to it´s liteweight backpack, the Celestron Travelscope 60 performs as a great little travel companion. A 45 degree erecting Prism is just the right choice for delivering all terrestrial and celestial action entirely in correct image orientation and in a comfortable viewing position. The basic outfit also includes a collapsible, aluminum legged-tripod. 20 mm and 8mm eyepieces supply two basic magnifications (18x and 45x) and magnifications can be trippled up to 135x, by making use of the 3x Barlow-Lens which is included as well. A Moon-filter is rounding up the equipment for glare-free observation of our nearest celestial neighbour . This scope of supply is is fully apt to observe the surrounding landscape during the day, to see the moon with its craters in stunning detail, to identify the most prominent deep sky objects such as globular clusters, the M31 Andromeda-Galaxy, the M2 Orion-Nebula and many more. The high range of magnifications makes this combo very well suited for planetary observation of Jupiter and Saturn – the rings of Saturn are a spectacular sight. But the best sight is the price for all this:  € 68.-

Solar System Edition (while supply lasts)

In addition to the goodies above, the best is yet to come. Two most important accessories make this traveling telescope truly irresistable:

  1. The Baader Solar Filter ASSF 65, equipped with genuine Astrosolar Safety film at a unit value of EUR 41. Makes the telescope a fun, to start astronomy in bright daylight, observing sunspots, get a glimpse of the underlying solar granulation. The ASTF is the first and only solar filter featuring a set of safety straps supplied to securely fasten the filter onto the front end of this telescope. Solar observation in complete safety – that is the prime goal in this case. It changes the game of daytime observation to have a filter securely mounted onto the telescope. No bad feeling any more resting in the back of your mind when thinking about the incredible amount of energy entering into th eye when using unsafe mounting options as a solar filter.
  2. A 4 mm Celestron eyepiece at a value of EUR 23.-  This eyepiece offers “just” 90x magnification but it provides for an even better image than using the 3x barlow at 135x time whenever the air turbulence would not allow for absolutely highest magnification. With this you can really see the famous four “galileian moons” never ending circling around Jupiter – as well as Jupiter´s atmospheric belts, the handle-shaped rings around Saturn, the waxing and vaning shape of Venus as well as the white caps of the Martian poles.

    5 out of 5 Great value, useful and good fun!

    This is amazing!! I had been looking for a travel telescope for a while, and I also missed solar equipment for the recent Mercury transit. First whitelight solar observation for me with this scope and I had a lot of fun observing sunspots. The view of the sun is quite incredible, I can’t wait for an eclipse or other solar phenomenon to view with this. The moon is also a very good target for this scope, even at higher magnification. Travelled with it by airplane without any problems, I stuffed the backpack into a suitcase just to be sure, since the backpack is not super sturdy. The tripod is not very sturdy, but what can you expect for this price? It is easy to travel with regardless. I’m used to equatorial mountings, and having never worked with an azimuthal tripod it wasn’t easy for me, but if you’re used to that I’m sure it’s no problem. Planetary observation is difficult with this because of strong chromatic abberation (Jupiter looked like a rainbow when I tried to view it), maybe a good eyepiece can reduce that, but I prefer to observe planets with my newtonian telescope. Don’t forget that you can bring this telescope to your family or friends easily and entertain them with some great views of the sun and moon!
