As a telescope it is fine and comes in its own rucsac the only problem is the tripod the alt azimuth head is too stiff by far and makes locating stars and planets very difficult. I have replaced the tripod with a cheap camera version. it is now great. Good value for money as a travel scope. - Roseland Observatory.
Bought this for a trip canoeing 250 miles up the British Columbian coast. Those at home can follow your progress and those trying to meet up with you can do so! .Expect to be using it in the near future in some remote corner of the world. In the event of a disaster would have been a lifesaver.
