Celestron NexStar 90SLT Telescope

  • Summary: The scope is great. The mount not so much. The azimuth motor burned out within the first two weeks of getting it. Celestron said I qualify for a full replacement so I sent it back 6 days ago and am waiting for a reply.

Celestron NexStar 90SLT Telescope

  • Summary: I would hope that this review would help some newer people to the hobby like myself, in finding a great quality first scope. For weeks I have researched a lot of websites and watched many videos on *** concerning choices for a "beginners scope". I had been more impressed with Celestrons offerings than the *** company. I didn't want to spend the money on the *** so I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled on the Celestron SLT90 goto telescope.

Great User Friendly Computerized Telescope

  • Summary: This computerized telescope has over 4000+ objects onboard. Simple to set up & to use. The nexstar skyalign technology is really user friendly. Unfortunately it doesn't come with auto time keeping, have to set the time everytime when start the telescope. Mount is very steady & accurate. Optical are small (Only 90mm) but sufficient to show details like ring of saturn, jupiter's cloud belt, nebula etc. The FOV is good.
  • Pros: Good & accurate mount
  • Cons: Small optical tube (90mm Mak)

OMG! I can see Jupiters moons!

  • Excerpt: I found the scope simple to setup and simple to align and stayed in alignment pretty well.<br />The optics seem to be of good quality for the price and the goto feature is just wonderful.<br /><br />The focus knob is too close to the main eyepiece causing a more unstable image as my finger bumps into into the diagonal after a 1/4 turn.<br /><br />A glow in the dark bubble mount would have been a nice touch as well.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Difficult To Focus

Cosmic wonderment

  • Summary: Awesome telescope definitely worth every penny. Managed to observe saturn clearly and moon surface detail can't wait till there's more in the night sky later this year. If I was to criticise though I'd have to say that the batteries do go pretty quick and seeing as it requires 8 double a's it can be expensive! There is a 12v plug input though (not included) (and nor were the batteries : ) ).
