  • Summary: I was pleasantly surprised with the telescope! It's a little complicated for my son to operate by himself, but while we are using it he says he feels like real scientific. Great purchase for the novice star gazer.

Great telescope but lame tripod.

  • Excerpt: I bought this telescope as a gift for my 10 year old nephew and he seems very happy with it. I setup everything, the telescope itself feels very solid, with good optics, but the tripod that came with it is extremely flimsy and unstable. My copy had a faulty erect image diagonal but I contacted Celestron costumer support and the shipped me a new one right away. Excellent company. Highly recommended product.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Unstable

nifty little scope

  • Excerpt: The temptation for this review is to give the product less than 5 stars but I am resisting that temptation. The reason is that the cost is so small that you have to concede that you got more than what you paid for. I set the scope up for my 5 year old niece at her height and put the full moon in the 20mm eyepiece and she was thrilled. There you have it, it was worth every penny.

surprisingly awesome

  • Excerpt: Got this for planetary stuff. I'm in NYC so there is a lot of light pollution- basically you need help to see more than 10 stars, and of course I wanted something I could look at planets with. This was a great scope- I basically wanted a small 70mm+ scope that is compact and it does a great job. Jupiter, and Mars are easy targets and I can see lots of dim stars with it.

  • Excerpt: I use it for stargazing when travelling and for an astro spotting scope. The tripod it comes with is very cheap. I use a pro-photography tripod instead and it makes for a nice rig.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

Great for technologically challenged folks like me!

  • Summary: I was searching for an inexpensive, easy to use telescope to indulge my fascination with the skies. Celestron Travel Scope has so far lived up to my expectations. It is a little hard to tighten the knobs locking it in place without altering it's position, but otherwise is easy to use. The CD explaining use, setup and care is easy to understand and the one giving an overview of our neck of space is wonderful.
