If you’re a city dwelling star gazer you have a problem: you probably can’t see the stars very well from your house. This means you have to venture out somewhere with a telescope, which can be quite the hassle. You can certainly lug a big telescope along and set it up in a field near the road, but what if you want to hike up to the top of a ridge? The Celestron Travel Scope 70 is perfect for those types of excursions.

It comes in a custom backpack for easy travel, and can be set up without any tools. This ease of setup is one of our favorite things about the Travel Scope 70, because it means you’ll use it far more often. Another thing we liked was the wide field of vision. It’s great for viewing star clusters.

If you consider yourself an “outdoorsy” person and you haven’t gotten into star gazing yet, we insist that you do! It’s free, and there is always something new to explore. Even something as familiar as the moon is different every single night. It gives you a perspective on life that can’t be achieved any other way. Realizing how massive the universe is makes everything on our little planet that much more astounding. Give stargazing a try. As a beginner you can’t go wrong with the Celestron Travel Scope 70 for price and functionality.

Price: $89.95
