Digiscoping is Easy with the Celestron Smartphone Adapter

Share your greatest discoveries with friends and family by pairing the LandScout spotting scope with the included smartphone adapter. This accessory connects any smartphone to the LandScout eyepiece, or any other eyepiece with an outside diameter of 45mm or smaller (such as a binocular or telescope eyepiece). The eyepiece’s magnification bumps up the image scale, so you can capture stunning images of wildlife, distant objects, and even the Moon at night! This light, rigid smartphone adapter installs in seconds by clamping over the top of the eyepiece. Tightening knobs securely lock your phone in place. Note that some large and/or excessively bulky phone cases (including folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit in the adapter.

Our Tried-and-True Spotting Scope

The LandScout 60mm spotting scope features a 45° viewing angle, excellent fully multi-coated optics, and a versatile 12-36x zoom eyepiece. The 45° viewing angle provides comfort for extended periods of observing. The LandScout features fully coated optics which increases the light transmission for bright, sharp images. The adjustable magnification allows a wide field of view for general viewing and detailed up-close viewing when needed. The LandScout 12-36x60mm is perfect for those times you don’t want to carry a larger, heavier scope on your expeditions. Its rugged and portable design makes it easy to transport anywhere.

Perfect for a Variety of Uses

LandScout comes with a 12-36x zoom eyepiece. Use the lower magnifications to scan the landscape and quickly punch in for detailed, up-close views of small subjects when needed. The large, ergonomic focus knob ensures your object is always in clear view. Both the zoom and focus knobs come with a rubber grip for easy adjustments while wearing gloves. LandScout was designed to perform well in a range of viewing situations, making it a great all-around optical instrument.

Ways to Observe
