    Comments about Celestron C90 Mak Spotting Scope:

    When mounted to a sturdy tripod with a video head, this little scope really performs. The 32mm Plossl eyepiece is very bright and easy to use. Jupiter's belts are visible but I ordered the accessory kit to get more powerful eyepieces for planet viewing. Reviews of this scope have compared it quite favorably to ones costing much more. It's a huge improvement over the previous model.

      Comments about Celestron C90 Mak Spotting Scope:

      As soon as i took out the scope, I was surprised at how solid it felt, and its very sturdy construction. The ends are make of tough plastic and the body of the ota is made out of metal. The focusing knob turns nice and smoothly, splits many binaries with ease, nice crisp images, able to see a number of deep space objects like open and globular cluster. Works terrific on the moon. I would suggest though to get a better finder scope and different eyepieces. The 32 mm eyepiece has very small FOV and doesn't allow telescope to perform to full capacity. Also suggest getting nicer tripod mount for this scope, any vibration is very apparent. All around, nice portable little scope.

          Comments about Celestron C90 Mak Spotting Scope:

          This is a great scope. Its small and pretty light(5 lbs) I have it on a Celestron Heavy Duty Tripod (AZ3) and it works perfectly. This is great for Terrestrial Views, Use at the gun range, and for Celestrial Viewing as well. I have got some great views of the Moon, Sun, Saturn, Jupiter, and some deep space objects like M31. Great scope for the price!

            Comments about Celestron C90 Mak Spotting Scope:

            Just as good a view as the 4.5" Newtonian I used to own, but much more compact and easy to manuever around. I wanted something that could be used for terrestial and celestial and yet be easily carried around - this is it! I would recommend the one piece zoom lens available and the Celestron tripod with slow motion controls. Terrestial viewing is right side up image which is very very nice. Just a great functional scope for all around use. Even comes with a backpack. For my needs it is perfect.

              Comments about Celestron C90 Mak Spotting Scope:

              I have had this C 90 spotting scope for about two weeks and I have put it through multiple tests. For terrestrial viewing is truly fantastic. For astronomy it performs just as good as two other six-inch and 10 inch telescopes I own. I could see the rings of Saturn extremely clear. I could see Jupiter and its cloud belts and surrounding moons. I have other expensive eyepieces, but the 32mm that it comes with is very good. I use an equatorial tripod mount for astronomic viewing, it is a little easier than just a tripod. That being said you can use a photo tripod for terrestrial and some astronomic viewing as long as it is not straight overhead. The C-90 is extremely well-built and the perfect size, I am very impressed.
