This is going for 319.95 on the Celestron website and on Amazon, and from the past few months I have been checking, this price was locked. Walmart seems to be running a huge markdown for Black Friday.

From my research, this is a very solid beginner telescope, and I just made the purchase.

It's a good price but if you can, you should get the 102AZ if you're set on this scopes. The 90 will work well for DSO viewing due to being f12.8 and f/11.1 respectively. They'll be like looking through a pipe. The 102AZ is about the same price before the discount as the 90, gets you another 12mm of aperture, and at f/6.5 it'll have a much wider field of view. Also, the ergonomics of long refractors are terrible, so the 102 will be much more pleasant to use. But hey, for $199, it would be a good starting point.

This is a good question. I'm assuming you can only see the moon with clarity with this?

I have tried so many of these telescope. I can tell you it is all junk but I have been staying under the $150 range. I looked at the moon and yes, you can see the craters like you see in books but nothing to be wowed about. I look at a bright star in the sky and it turns out to be four stars very close but still a speck of light.

Tried to use to look at those planes that is releasing the trail of smoke but useless because finding it is impossible on moving objects.

Don't even think about using the phone to take pictures!

Not really.. you need a filter to see it clearer than the naked eye.

Looks like this is a good 3.5" scope. You will get great views of the moon and a decent look at Jupiter and it's brightest moons. No need to find a really dark place to watch the moon, just set it up in your driveway and enjoy.

Moon is supercool to look at when full (bright) and equally cool when it's just a little crescent (shadows really make the craters stand out).

Jupiter will most likely look like a bright white dot, but you make get a hint of color if you find a really dark area.

Celestron NexStar 6SE and 8SE with electronic star tracking would be the next telescope I would look at it you want more detail.

I assume you meant to say NOT work well for DSO viewing.

And agreed... I own the 102AZ as well as slower refractor (got them cheap used).

The slower (longer) refractors are really only good for the Moon and Jupiter/Saturn. As there will be less (albeit still some) chromatic aberration with the slower scopes.

But that's it... otherwise the narrower field of view isn't a plus. And the ergonomics are terrible, as you say. Only reason I have a slower scope is because I got it dirt cheap on CL.... and am actually trying to sell it now.

For this 90AZ scope, I also notice no slow motion controls. That's a huge deal.

So I'd say go for the 102AZ at $200 or an Astronomer's without Borders at $250.

Just so folks know, even in a suburban light polluted area (with clear skies otherwise) and using decent magnification (say a 9-12mm eyepiece), one should see a couple of bands on Jupiter and several of its largest moons.

You should also see the rings of Saturn just fine, along with the Cassini Division.

Now neither will be huge, but they won't be just white dots (unless using very minimal magnification).

I purchased it and it will be my first telescope. Many reviews say it is hard to adjust the position. Kind of worry about that, but it does have a 90 day returns.
