Most Helpful Positive Review I like it!
Like the flip on cover, the ease of use, and setup. The only drawlback is that you really need a steady platform (hand held is a poor option) to view...

Celestron C90 Mak Spotting Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on June 2, 2009
Nicely designed scope, but suffers a little from cheaply executed parts (plastic finder mount, poor fitting dustcaps, plastic erecting prism). Optics are acceptable, and the nitrogen filled and sealed tube means no fogging or water damage issues when in the field. Scope is on the heavy side, so make sure you have a solid tripod to mount it on.
Pros: Price, Waterproof, Solidly built, Case included
Cons: Plastic erecting prism and finder mount...
Would recommend: Yes

Celestron C90 MAK

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on August 3, 2007
I've used it as the best spotting scope that I've ever used. Nice as a compact telescope but, I haven't developed the photos that I've taken through it yet so no comment on it's use as a telephoto lens....
Would recommend: Yes

C-90 Spotting Scope For Birding

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OR Written on July 26, 2007
The images for birding are magnificent ... Distance is no problem ... Great even in poor light situations ... Easy to focus ... A bit hard to aim ... A good tripod is a must ... The celestron alt/azmuth adjustment tripod would be a plus ... Not advisable for moving subjects.
Pros: Outstanding Image Quality
Cons: High Magnification Can Be Difficult to Aim...
Would recommend: Yes

Like the flip on cover, the ease of use, and setup. The only drawlback is that you really need a steady platform (hand held is a poor option) to view anything. Moon watching and birding are both good with the 90mm.
Pros: Durable rubber exterior, e.z. to handel
Cons: Slight distortion on edges, hard to hold steady without a tripod...
Would recommend: Yes
