Excerpt: I bought the Celestron C90 primarily for lunar imaging due to its longer focal length (1250mm). For the price, it's a great buy and should provide a lifetime of use. It comes with a simple yet adequate backpack for storing the scope and supplied accessories.
Excerpt: I bought this scope for the range but will also use it for 'planet fun'. Haven't been to the range yet but live in the country. we all have 4 or more acres. My photo tripod was REALLY shakey so I bought a mike stand for $ and it seems solid now.
Excerpt: I was after a terrestrial telescope with good magnification and good optics for daytime observations .I've attached a photo , the cow in the photo is 2 miles or 3.1 kilometres away . Pretty happy with the results .
Excerpt: Purchased for astronomy and long distance birding. The build quality of the optical tube feels excellent. It was heavier than I expected. My Slik 330 EZ tripod head does not handle the weight very well; particularly when tipping up for a higher view.
Excerpt: I needed an inexpensive spotting scope for rifle practice. I tried both Celestron and Barska zoom spotting scopes and found both wanting. Then I realized a 90mm MAK telescope with a 17mm eyepiece gives me a mag of around 75x, perfect for eyeballing targets at 100 yards.
