Celestron SkyScout Scope 90
11 June 2010
Summary: Another GREAT product from Celestron !! Along with the Celestron SkyScout,this is the next best thing to a computerized scope. The G.P.S. driven SkyScout points out and identifies thousands of stars, planets and deep sky objects with the press of a button. The 90mm refractor gives clear/crisp views of the Heavens through Celestron's multi-coated optics. The 40mm eyepiece puts the Moon right in your backyard.
Summary: Let's face it - the Skyscout is fun and helps you find all sorts of night sky objects but it is frustrating when you can't see any details, for example the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, binary stars, even some of the brighter nebulae. The Skyscout Scope 90 solves this. Now you can locate the object with the Skyscout and peer through the Scope to look at the details.
Summary: My preliminary assessment of the SkyScout Scope 90 is that it is optically very good and, as a 90mm achromatic refractor, works well. The supplied eyepieces are good and the focussing mechanism works well. It was well-packaged and easy to put together, apart from the finderscope which had to be rebuilt as its rubber ring was not attached but was wrapped round the finder mount. Tonight I have had excellent sharp views of Saturn and its moons.
Summary: As a companion to the Skyscout it is unbeatable, it opens up the universe to all ages, lets you see any visible star, planet, or constellation is easy to set up and use. Know the sky like you know your own neigbourhood.
