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.
Summary: Great Product from Littleton, CO– This is a great little telscope for the money. The tripod eexpands to full height so you can use it on a table or the floor. The carrying bag is sturdy and versatlle.
Summary: We just got back from a trip to California wine country and the Pacific coast. We used it to watch whales and sea lions from our cabin deck overlooking the ocean. Before we left we observed the Super Moon and it was fantastic as well. Very light weight telescope with backpack and tripod. Quick and easy to assemble. Thanks for the great deal!
Summary: This is definately not a serious Telescope. But is ideal for those back pack hikes or when spending a weekend at the lake. The tripod is the main reason not best for star searching.The telescope it's self is ok for those wide field looks but do not expect it to tolerate high magnification. Would be really good for looking at birds and animals or seeing whats going on down the street.Is it worth the cost ? Well yes as long as your expectations are reasonable.
