Today I have seen in a store for the first time in my life a Nexstar 5 SE Nexstar tripod and mount and I found a real charm telescope, nice and tiny!
If you provide beautiful images ...!
What scope charm!

Yes indeed! I love mine. Small enough to use as a travel scope, but a LOT more capability than the more common 80mm-ish refractor.

A cool, unsung, feature is that you can use it without the tripod as a table-top model! If you really want to travel light and not haul around the big tripod, you can still get a lot of enjoyment out of it.
