The Celestron tripod is a great choice for relatively small telescopes. I bought it for use with a MAC90 after first trying a camera tripod. The camera tripod was simply not sturdy enough to hold the scope still, particularly when used with higher magnification. The Celestron Tripod comes with no instructions, but set up is pretty straight forward. One negative is that there is no easy adjustment for the elevation control large movements. The two knobs on flex cables provide fine adjustments of both rotation and elevation. I found that I had to loosen the bolt in the head which controls up down pivot to make it easier to make the adjustments which are then done by pressing on the scope. Once in position the knob allows for fine tuning. However there is no way to 'lock' the position without getting out the wrench again. Despite this limitation this is still a signficant step up from a camera tripod for scopes particularly for astronomical use
I own a mix of binoculars & brands....now consisting of all sizes from 7x35 to 10x50. Totally dissatisfied with Celestron's earlier roof prism "nature" 10x42 (#71327) open bridge model I purchased & quickly returned 3 years ago. These newer DX glasses from Celestron are well constructed w/ nice features & much improved optic quality. I was expecting slightly crisper image detail here for price & included phase correction....as compared to my cheaper $ glasses which don't have PC but match all else. Nature DX delivers bright, edge to edge clarity + true color resolution w/ generous FOV. Diopter adjustment on mine tends to overcorrect. Happier exterior body color is actually a darker shade green (forest) color than pictured. If looking for quality mid-size binoculars between = compact...10x25 and full-size...10x42, these are quite decent !
