Nice scope for the money

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a reasonably priced spotting scope to use at the gun range, so I bought a Tasco 20-60x60 along with a Celestron C70 Mini-Mak Spotting Scope to compare them side by side, intending to keep one of them. (I bought both at @.ca because it offered unbeatable by Canadian standards prices: $ for the Tasco and $ for the Celestron, with free shipping!
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Decent Sharpness At Max, Good eye relief, Price-to-value Ratio, Strong Magnification
  • Cons: Shaky Focusing

Easy to Use

  • Excerpt: This is a small and lightweight unit with good optics. I use it for terrestrial viewing. The zoom eyepiece is good and It can accept standard 1.25 inch eyepieces with the included adapter. I am using a 40 mm Plossl. This gives me a magnification of about 18 with a very clear scene and good eye relief (I wear glasses). Az and El fine adjustments on the tripod are also nice.
  • Pros: Accepts 125 In Eyepieces, Bright Eyepiece, Easy To Pack And Setup, Fine Az El Adjustments
  • Cons: No Case For Tripod

Good planetary mobile telescope for beginners, travellers, buyers on budget

  • Summary: Good planetary mobile telescope for beginners, travellers, buyers on budget. Can be used both as spotting scope and telescope. I managed to watch Moon in details, Saturn and some star clouds. I bought this one in addition to 150 mm reflector for travel purposes, probably next C90 model is an option at a good price since 90 mm is somewhat closer to real entry level telescope. Assembled scope+tripod fits any suitcase or mid-size bag and only weights couple pounds.
