        Very happy with this Telescope. Was able to view Jupiter this weekend with my sons. Package arrived Friday and we were gazing at the sky that night. No regrets at all.

          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.

            I,m a newbee so this is my second telescope,first scope I had was a cheap refractor type,the starfinder was a little hard to align but I was told to set it on a small object using 25mm in daytime,which worked great.it takes a little while to align with three stars,just make sure tripod
            is level,,all in all this is a great scope, well worth the money,
            optics are top quality, I suggest you also purchase the filter eyepiece kit ,it makes scope easier to use for star gazing and daytime observing,birds etc.highly recommend this scope and hayneedle has great price.

              Comments about Celestron NexStar 90 SLT Computerized Telescope:

              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 tri-pod is rock solid on adjustable legs. The two included eyepieces work great, and I had a 2x Barlow (from a previous attempt to buy a telescope) that fit into the rotation seamlessly. We had a near-full moon here and I was able to check it out with ease, and it makes a pretty good object to use to ~bore-sight the red dot/aiming finderscope that mounts inline along the body of the main scope. With the less-powerful eyepiece you can fit the whole full moon in the view, the greater magnification piece = you can begin to easily focus on quarters or eighths of the moon. When I put the 2x Barlow in in conjunction with either of the two included, I was able to focus on craters inside of craters, though the tracking understandably becomes more difficult at that point. The focus control is very simple to use. I have not yet experimented with much of the computerized automation, only tried this scope with the moon and used the adjustable-rate motor to track it. My next target of interest is Saturn (if it's around?), and I'm really looking forward to this weekend when the kids will be able to stay up late enough to check it out without having to worry about getting up for school. I'll have to experiment with the triangulation that is required before we can use the pre-programmed celestial spotting functions of the scope. One other note, our celestron Power Tank is still on backorder, but the scope functioned without any trouble at all on the required AA battery power. We decided the Power Tank would be a good investment when taking the car out away from the city lights as far as possible for stargazing on summer nights. This seems like a really solid investment for an entry-level telescope, and I'm eager to let the kids have a try with it. The only reasons I gave four stars is because I can't have tested for longevity/durability yet, and because I don't have any relativity to compare it against any other products since this is my first scope. My initial experience with it was five stars, so I hope that will remain the case. OK cheers,
