upettersson, post 22,
As yet other compact solutions for small scopes were not mentioned and they may of interest.
If you want to use them for hiking and cano-ing purposes a compact 50 mm Celestron scope may be a good choice (very compact and lightweight).
Another option might be a draw tube telescope as they are made by Optolyth, Meopta and Swarovski. The most compact ones are probably made by Optolyth. you can read some test reports of this type of telescopes on the WEB-site of House of Outdoor, look under "Verrekijkers"and "verrekijkers testen en vergelijken'. The reports are in Dutch but the tables and graphs will be understandable also by Swedisch nationals I think.
I have very good experience with compact draw tube telescopes when hiking and mountain walking.
