Yeah, I have a second hand Stellarvue Nighthawk, a short 80mm unit. It fits on a camera tripod. It's also my winter scope of choice since clear skies are fleeting around here then. Go out, look though a hole in the clouds and go back inside. 3" of actual observing beats 12.5" of unassembled in the cellar "observing."

Totally agree about the Ranger. I can leave it in the car boot with a camera tripod for birding or quick looks at night - usually use a TV zoom with it

I agree with the concept-but for me usually binoculars.
Deep Space 600 map is my most used sky atlas, due to ease and size

One never knows what they may find when they leave home,
