Celestron Travel Scope 70

by Yukon, from United States, WI Written on November 14, 2014
Great scope for not a lot of money. I use it at the range as a spotting scope so the portable nature of the system is awesome. The tripod is tall and a little fragile but you need to align your expectations with the price. OP shipped quickly and free so that made the experience even better. Thanks for a good product! -P...

Very Handy Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IL Written on November 12, 2011
I bought this for several reasons. I use it as a spotting scope when target shooting, and it does very well. I also use it to watch birds, squirrels, and other wildlife in my backyard. Is is great for this purpose also.The fact that it comes in it's own backpack makes it easy to take camping too. Lastly I have tried it out as an astronomical scope, and enjoyed seeing Jupiter,the Orion Nebula and of course the moon. Highly recommended, and shipped fast from Optics Planet!
Pros: compact,great optics,low cost
Cons: tripod could be more stable...
Would recommend: Yes

Great Beginner Telescope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on September 28, 2011
Great Telescope for price. Multi-coated optics with 70mm objective for crisp & clear image. Chromatic abberation present but tolerable for this fast scope. Good eyepiece, Likely Kneller 3 element design with good FOV. Great for started. Put a 90 degree diagonal then it is perfect for astronomy.
Pros: Good optics, Good eyepiece
Cons: Tripod not stable enough...
Would recommend: Yes

Pros: Great optics
Cons: Need a better mount...

A little GEM of a scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on August 4, 2010
This scope does exactly what it says it does. You may not discover any asteroids with it but it delivers pretty much everything that any larger scope will. Its brilliant for observing wildlife. It works amazingly well for astronomical observing also. You can see plenty of DSO's (deep space objects), as well as those celestial bodies closer to home (the Moon and planets).

Ideal for holidays,weekends away etc.
Pros: Portable,very sharp clear image,well built.
Cons: the finderscope is not very good but easily replaced...

Great telescope for a pre-teen.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NJ Written on May 25, 2010
We purchased this telescope for our granddaughter's birthday. We liked the backpack and portability of the device. She is thrilled with the telescope. The images rival those of a much bigger telescope that we have.
Pros: Portable, clear image, sturdy scope
Cons: Trade off between light weight tripod and stability....
