Seems an ideal carrying scope for backpacking. Maybe same optics as the SW Esprit 80?.

I'm sure it is a beautiful, capable scope. But $1000 for a backpack scope? I'd get one of the Astrotech ED scopes for much less
and more compact.

I just set mine up for grab and go. It’s on a lightweight camera tripod, and on a Stellarvue M1v.
With an APM 30mm and laser finder it comes in at a hair over 15lb.
Not it what I’d call backpack territory.
