- Nice Telescope
havent had a chance to use it yet but i know i will be using it on a regular bases as soon as the weather cooperates
This telescope was a waist of money for me. It did not perform well looking at the sky.
Nice Telescope for Price
I purchased many Telescopes and I enjoy the Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope. I changed the Tripod that came with it I use the Tripod if I am going to travel and I replaced it with the Meade Instruments Classic 30 Photo Tripod and I also will replace the Finders Scope and will attach the Celestron Star Pointer Finders Scope Red Dot item number 51630. The Eyepieces are Great and I will not replace them. The backpack is cool and I like when I put the Telescope in the backpack. I also like the diagonals and I will use the two diagonals that Celestron sells. I like the Celestron Star diagonal and the Celestron ***** Image diagonal. I feel that this is a great Telescope and I will use it a lot.
Great little telescope. I got this as a New Year's present because I got an APO for a Christmas present. This is my car telescope, permanently installed under the passenger seat. I completely modified it as a DYI project. I blackened the edges of the lenses, discarded the tripod and finder, replaced the diagonal and eyepieces ( although these were OK), installed a solar filter in the dust cap, and epoxied a red dot finder base on it. On a good video tripod it is a performer at lower powers (17x-~50x). Best for the money if you are willing to hack.
For the price this scope is worth it even if you throw away the tripod it comes with. Get a better tripod and mount and you are good to go with this thing.
