There are many advantages for owning!


from Norman, OK  -  Casual/ Recreational

I cannot figure out how to attach my camera to it and that is why I bought it. Please advise.


Celestron Travel Scope 70 Rocks


from Philippines  -  Casual/ Recreational

The scope appears larger than the one shown in the pictures. Build quality is good but the focuser is plastic, to keep the cost low. Optics wise, Celestron never fails. A quick view at the pleiades shows pinpoint stars, more faint stars, even better than my barska 70mm bino. Turning towards the north, Andromeda galaxy was easily spotted with this scope, something I used to have a hard time spotting using my bino. Being a spotting scope, I also tested it on a cell tower 5 km away (daytime). I used the 10mm eyepiece, and focused on the top of the tower. To my surprise, I was able to see the threads and the bolts used on top of the tower. even the rusty pole at the top. this truly is a performer. This is a perfect grab and go scope. a performer both in spotting duty and in astro duty. BTW, I advice to change to a sturdier tripod with ballhead/fluid head for better vibration suppression and hassle free pointing.
