Is a great purchase, but I need a stronger lense to see the moon better! It is a bit akward in size to move around easily; to obtain the best viewing of birds in flight!.
VERY AWESOME ITEM, IT WORKS SO GREAT. ME AND MY FAMILY LOVE IT!!! ONE OF THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT, I'VE EVER GIVING MY FAMILY... VERY VERY GREAT TELESCOPE.THANKS OVERSTOCK
! 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!
