The adjustable tripod legs allow you to customize the telescope’s height or place it on raised surfaces like a picnic table. An included accessory tray will help you keep track of eyepieces and other small items while observing.

The total telescope kit weighs in at just 10 pounds - perfect for impromptu observing sessions or transporting wherever life’s adventures take you.
