! I Purchased the Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope for travel and remote Photo shoots. With the stats reading 400 focal length I also knew it would take the place of a "Focal Reducer" for Moon and Sun shots (full view) and provide wonderful wide field vista shots as well. My expectations have been exceeded. Yes, the Scope comes with a standard Camera tripod, which wobbles. Though by adding about 5 pounds of weight,(rocks, etc.) to the tripod (sling the pack under the tripod frame hanging under the center) It stabilizes nicely. I used this Scope just yesterday to Photo Shoot the Venus Transit across the Sun on a computerized mount with Excellent results! The finder scope is touchy, though all of them are, (and upside down) unless you wish to pay $$$$$ just for a right side up finder scope. One can "add on" to this little Scope later. The Eye Pieces are of Kellners design; (Celestron favorite to "package" with Scopes, and are of Quality Craftsmanship. The Service was in fact Outstanding, with the Package at my door three days after opening. Can't go wrong with this Scope for It has many Practical uses when "there's nothing to see in the sky". Take a Road Trip and a Camera!

can the Travel Scope 70 be attatched to a regular higher tripod ? It looks like the tripod pictured is a table mount ?dorsnikov on Sep 1, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This telescope can be put with a different or larger aftermarket tri-pod to make it stand up or the one that comes with it is either a table top as shown or used as a ground set. The legs telescope out as well making it taller. How much we are not sure but is more than shown. Thank you for your business. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 6, 2013
