      ! 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!

      Bought the telescope for a gift. For the price this telescope meets all the bells and whistles for a travel telescope. The advantage is that you can take iit with you on hikes or trips and also has its own storage bag.

      This was a super gift for my 12 year old grandson. It packs easily, and works from a table top. It is light, and easy to assemble. Lots and lots of hours looking up!!!

      This was a birthday present for my mother which has turned out to be unusable. The optics are good for this price point. The problem is the tripod mount, which is absolute garbage. The slightest touch, even a finger on the focus knob, sends the whole unit into violent vibrations that move it off target. Celestron sent a new tripod, but it's the exact same piece of junk as the original. Waiting for that took me past Overstock's thirty day policy, so rather than eating the return fees and shipping, I'll just have to keep it and buy or build a suitable mount. The case, while well padded, doesn't really have room for all the parts, or keep them from banging into each other while transporting. All in all, I wish I'd spent more time researching other options.

      Easily carried on a hike or quickly to catch a blue moon. It is very compact yet powerful. Makes great for a camping trip. Gives the kids something to look forward to.
