Quality control varies from unit to unit

Jim at Fox Obs, B&H Photo
4 February 2015
  • Excerpt: Mine was pretty good overall, optics very slightly out of alignment (are not user-adjustable) so it gave images that were only pretty good. The tube coupling to the mount had minor play in it and the internal adjustments there didn't eliminate the play. I returned it for refund.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Very Quick Set Up
  • Cons: Optical Quality May Vary

Superb optics, user friendly, accurate

  • Excerpt: An amazing instrument for both first time buyers and seasoned observers like myself. If you're frustrated (or worse) by lousy, poorly designed and basically unusable beginners telescopes, you will love this 90 SLT. It sets up in two minutes!
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: None

Excellent Telescope

Jesse, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
18 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Received it quickly and tested it out using birds and other terrestrial objects. The included eyepieces are excellent and provide a clear crisp image. I own several telescopes and this is by far my favorite. For astronomical viewing it returns excellent images and does not distort them.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

First Scope

Dad, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
10 April 2012
  • Excerpt: First scope, so my opinions should be taken as purely amateur. We got it for the kids for Easter but I was able to take it out of the box, assemble it and try it out Easter-Eve, and I've been very impressed with it. Assembly took about 20-25m or so: not too bad at all.

The sky's the limit!

Stargazer, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
13 January 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a great 'scope. The package included software that will make identifying and learning constellations and prominent stars easy. I did a lot of research on entry/intermediate scopes, and the Celestron just seemed to beat out the competition. And the price through Telescopes.com was unbeatable.

Unfortunately it doesn't come with auto time keeping, have to set the time everytime when start the telescope. Mount is very steady & accurate.
  • Pros: Good & accurate mount
  • Cons: Small optical tube (90mm Mak)...
