Best portable planetary scope

Recommended Posts

I bought a 127 Mak for my grown daughter to use on camping trips with her family.  It's rugged and compact.  I have one myself, but for home use I tend to use my 8" Dob for planetary viewing.

Another option not mentioned so far would be a GSO/StellaLyra/TS Optics Classical Cassegrain, either 6" or 8".  The late, great @johninderby really liked his 6" and 8" CCs and talked about them often on SGL.
