    Suggestions for a not-going-to-break-the-bank telescope for casual stargazing while out camping? Needs to be fairly compact and quick to setup-teardown as well.

    I run a C90Mak spotting scope. Pretty compact, still high quality optics. That or some good wide field binocs if you don't want a tripod.

    I think you would be mostly disappointed in any smaller scope. I had bought a 120mm scope that is fairly large thinking I would see everything. About the only thing that looked better was the moon. Stars still looked like stars, planets didn't look much better. The only thing I did see was faintly the rings of Saturn. It did not have a tracking motor which meant by the time you focused on something it would fly out of view. In the end I gave it away to a kid that might enjoy it for a while.

    A good set of binoculars with a tri-pod attachment would be my suggestion. I'll see if I can get some pics of mine. They are great for when I want to see something without busting out the 10" Dobsonian.
