    Comments about Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope:

    I carried this scope with its tripod in my hiking backpack all the way down into the Grand Canyon to Phantom Ranch and out again(North Rim to South Rim). This little scope performed very well, and stood up to the rigors of the trip very well. We had great skies at Phantom Ranch, and this scope showed us M13 and M92 very clearly. Glad I made the purchase. The tripod is sort of flimsy, as stated elsewhere here, but it was light and durable. (I did not bring the backpack that the kit comes with on the hike, because that would have taken up too much room in my pack.)

    Comments about Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope:

    Must say I am very disapointed with celestron. Optics are poor quality but what do you expect for the price. This and the 50 are at best spotting scopes.
    If your intentions are wildlife viewing then you got an ok deal.If astronomy is your interest this is not the scope for you. No quality in this, floppy focuser, poor optics and cheap eyepieces. But to be fair look at the price and it is extreemly portable. My advise spend a little more and do your research.

      Comments about Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope:

      My Wife Purchased the Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope for our travel and remote Photo shoots. With the stats reading 400 focal length I also knew it would take the place of a "Focal Reducer" (costing $100/150)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 $60.00 just for a right side up finder scope. One can "add on" to this little Scope later. The Eye Pieces are of Kellners design; (Celestrons 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

      Service and delivery comments:

      The Hay Needle Family of Stores never fail us. Yhe Service, packaging; and Delivery times are outstanding! Five Stars for Service, and the hard work and dedication it take to provide such an Excellent level of Service on a continuim! Thanks Once again!

      Disappointing

        Comments about Celestron Travel Scope 70 Telescope:

        I used it only once, for astronomy. I had to use my own camera tripod to get the image to stay still. The image bounces around like a yoyo with the included tripod. I was able to get the image to focus on a light pole with both lenses, but only one of the two lenses would focus the stars. I saw something around where Mars was supposed to be which was either Mars with a yellow (?!) featureless disk, or a star way out of focus. That's all I can say for this scope. If you buy this scope you will need to replace the tripod and eyepieces on day one.
