This scope is commonly used as a guide scope on bigger astronomy set ups. With the use of a correct image diagonal it also makes a superb terrestrial telescope when mounted on an alt-azimuth mount. The compact length of the telescope makes it convenient for it to be packed up and stored away while not in use, or in transit.
