The name Hummingbird reflects a number of the qualities of hummingbirds: very small size, highly mobile (they are able to fly in most any direction at will), and capable of long-distance commute (many migrate between South and North The us). The Celestron Hummingbird is a “micro” ED spotting scope, and like its namesake, the Hummingbird Micro Spotting Scope is as well suited to long-distance commute as it is to the backyard. Ideally suited for commute – the Hummingbird will easily fit into a pocket, shoulder bag, or carry-on luggage. This spotting scope is perfect for traveling birders as a more commute-friendly alternative to a full-size spotting scope. The lowest magnification level can also serve as a substitute for a binocular.
