Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Celestron Travelscope 70 Telescope Kit (Camera)
Ive just recieved this telescope and was so excited about it . I couldnt wait to unpack it...having 3 other telescopes ..it didnt take me long to unpack and set up ..piece of cake...it looks very nice and great for the purpose of carting it around everywhere i go ..the optics are quality having a quick look over the fields amazing views.im lookin about a mile away at a bus parked up and i can easily read the adverts and name of the company name on the bus also i can read the number plate that is not kidding you amazing clarity..Ok i read reviews that the 3x barlow lens is useless ..ok you have a problem if you dont set it up right you see nothing...firstly take out the diagonal prism and place your barlow straight into the end of the scope basically making it extended..then place you diagonal into the end of the barlow and then pop in your eyepiece..HEY PRESTO!!!! works perfectly ...ok the tripod is`nt great but ok when viewing land etc but for star gazing i would recommend a bigger and sturdier tripod I have these on my other scopes so i wont have a problem....on the whole this little piece of kit is FANTASTIC you cant go wrong at the price amazing....patience on how to set it up and use is required but once you do that you will have some great fun with this scope...both land and sky viewing ..as i said i have 3 other larger scope and this is up there with them .. the reason i got this is to take out when i walk the dog because were i live Im blessed with beautiful views and wildlife and grèat open skies at night...I love the back pack idea ...I`m happy i spent the money on a product that has great value and will see plenty of use and at the price you wont get better anywhere and Celestron is a top brand in telescopes with quality optics ..GET ONE and learn how to use it and you will enjoy amazing views of the skies and wildlife and general views .... :-)

I agree that this telescope set is easy to use and great value for money. As a novice, we have found it easy to use, and are careful when using the light-weight tripod - no problems so far. We used it this weekend to view stars, and also pine cones at the top of the trees in our garden! Thanks for your tip about using the 3x barlow lens - will try that next time.
