Customer Reviews on Celestron C70 Mini Mak Maksutov-Cassegrain Spotting Scope

5 out of 5 based on 2 reviews

The scope arrived quickly and was well packed I used it for the first time for a bit of bird watching and its very good up to about half way the image quality does drop off at maximum magnification but at 25x up to 50x it is fine which goes along with other reviews I have read. Tried it with a slightly better eyepiece not zoom and it was excellent
Microglobe dealt with the sale process quickly and politely and I wouldn t have a problem using these guys again.

Great scope. I have 114mm newtonian on EQ mount and I have searched for something light and practical to carry on a field trips newtonian is too big . This is great spotting scope and it can be used as a small telescope it is light cheap with good optics and a adaptor for 1 25 oculars and I have many of those . Zoom ocular that comes with it is OK but not the best optics in the world but for the price who can blame him .
Tripod however is useable but not good unstable with a lot of shaking . Thread adapter on a scope is a standard optics tread so any photo tripod will be a huge improvement over this one. I knew that prior to buying and I have my own photo tripod so it was not an issue to me.
Packing by Microglobe was great it took me 3 minutes to get it out of the boxes very safe and secure.
