4.0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong for the price!, November 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron 21035 70mm Travel Scope (Electronics)
The Celestron 70mm travel scope has been a wonderful addition to our backpacking on Oahu. We've been able to take it anywhere and get some beautiful views above Kaneohe, Ewa, and Aiea (overlooking Pearl Harbor). The backpack is just rugged enough for medium size hike's and has room to carry water and trail mix.

The optics are awesome. I was really surprised at both the clarity and power of the scope; easily reading the ship numbers out in the harbor, as well as getting great views of Jupiter and its moons.

The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is due to the tripod. Granted it's a low cost system, but the ability to adjust can be tedious as it's either too tight or too loose when traversing and elevating. If your looking at purchasing this, look for a low-cost metal tripod to get a better motion in your views.
