Comments about Celestron 21035 Travel Scope 70 Portable Telescope - Includes Tripod and Backpack:
At first, I thought it was a nice compact size, until I wanted to view anything far away. The adjustments for the tripod were so stiff, I could not get anything to stay within the frame, if I moved it just slightly, everything would go out of frame. Get something with a more stable tripod! I wish I spent more money on a good telescope with a good tripod. Overall; with this tripod, it is unstable (it move ALOT) and it is not very adjustable...DO NOT BUY THIS, especially if you want to attach a solar system imager. Oh, and forget about focusing, it moves so much, you can't focus well.
