Lomo Astele 70
The version I use is an f/10 700 mm focal length telescope. The size of this scope is almost embarassingly small, but good things come in small packages. Stellar images are pinpoint. The Mak design means no chromatic aberrations common with similarly sized short focal length refractors. The scope comes with a unique gunsight type of finder that takes some getting used to. It works, but is a little odd. Just as larger catadioptric telescopes, too low a power results in seeing the secondary shadow. The perfect grab-and-go small travel scope at a great price.
