Model: startravel_80_tabletopPart Number: 10730Brand: Skywatcher
A portable compact 80mm (3.1") f/5 refractor on a tabletop mount. Perfect for holidays.
I bought this scope as both a travel scope and spotting scope for my larger telescopes.The tabletop mount is a sturdy little thing which comes packed in a nice easy to transport bag. The mount it self is pretty stable because of the low centre of mass.The telescope is perfect for planetary viewing. Allowing me to get good views are Jupiter and its moons. Saturn and its rings as well as our own moon.This scope has quickly become my quick viewing scope as I can literally grab and go.If you are looking to get into astronomy I would highly recommend this scope as the views are planets are great. It is also something which will continue to serve you will as an upgraded spotting scope as you get more and more into astronomy.Rated 4**** because I needed to make a small mod as the scope had a small wobble on the mount (but it really was nothing major).
