The NexStar 90 SLT package includes everything but the batteries. With a fullyillustrated quick set-up guide, no tools are needed to assemble the telescope with its steel tripod,motorized mount, and computer hand control. Two eyepieces are included, a 25mm for 50Xmagnification and a 9mm eyepiece for 139X. The package even includes the latest version of"The Sky X", software that turns your PC into a virtual planetarium.The Maksutov optical design of the NexStar 90 SLT gives the telescope a focal length of1250mm in an optical tube only twelve inches long. This long focal length is ideal for bringingout detail on the Moon and planets. When I look at the Moon for example, the view is crisp andclear with no trace of false color. When I look at Saturn I can easily push the magnification to200X with an optional 6mm plossl eyepiece. When I look at deep space objects I often like touse an optional 32mm plossl eyepiece (39X magnification) because objects like M45 thePleiades cluster and M31 the Andromeda galaxy look better with a wider field of view.The NexStar 90 SLT also features Celestrons patented SkyAlign technology. With SkyAlign Idont need a star chart or a compass to align the telescope, I just enter the date and time thenpoint the telescope at three bright stars. SkyAlign tells me the star names, and allows thetelescope to find over 4,000 stars, planets, and galaxies by just pushing a button. The accuratetracking makes it easy to get high power views of the planets, and allowed me to take some greatpictures using a Celestron NexImage webcam. I also like the "Two-Star align" and "SolarSystem align" modes because I can often get the NexStar system up and running while olderscopes are still waiting for their alignment stars to appear in he twilight.I enjoy using the NexStar 90SLT because it has excellent optics in a compact, twelve poundpackage that I can carry outside in one trip and be ready to go in minutes. A computerized
telescope may take practice to set up; if I dont enter the time correctly the alignment may fail forexample. The other drawback of a computerized telescope, of course, is the short life of standardAA batteries. A rechargeable 12-Volt battery is a handy way to power the NexStar 90SLT, and Ilike to keep the tripod legs short and observe while seated because this gives me a solid andcomfortable view. --Jeff PhillipsPros: Excellent optics Compact and portable Easy computerized go-to tracking "The Sky X" planetarium software includedCons: Short battery life with AA batteriesSuggested Options: Celestron Accessory Kit Celestron PowerTank batteryQuarter Moon shot at 50X with a PowershotcameraQuarter Moon closeup shot at 200X withNeximage camera

Fast! There was an issue with the handpiece, Celestron Customer Support wasvery responsive and we flashed with new software while on the phone. Theyre sending theNextstar PLUS out with these. Very nice. DO NOT FORGET TO get the serial cable and theUSB cord. You want to be able to plug this into your computer.8/3/2012Here we are a while later, and all this thing has done is made me want more, more, more...rofl.The scope is great! I would get the dampeners, and the power supply. One of the best scopes inthis price range, but now Im looking in the $1000 plus range. Gee, "Thanks Celestron"...."yougot me hooked" :P Oh and yes, you will be "so mad" when the weather does not cooperate.35 of 40 people found the following review helpful.Very happyBy Alonso Montoya GuzmanI bought this for my wife, as a birthday gift, because she always wanted a telescope and neverhad one before.Its really difficult to find out what telescope buy, so many reviews over the internet and verydifferent opinions on brands and types. After some research, I take the decision on this one.
We received it about a week ago, and we have really enjoyed these past days looking at the stars.I will try to describe step by step our experience:1. The assembly was very easy, no tools needed and this process take us about 10 minutes, and itcan be quicker, because we take time to review everything twice, as neither of us has experiencewith telescopes.2. We bring the telescope to our backyard (just about 5-6 meters away from home, basically,because we just wanted to tasted and because we were using an Ac adapter to power thetelescope.3. Aligning was not an easy task to us, the "skyalign" process it self is very simple to follow up,but we have some difficulties centering the stars in the finder scope and in the eyepiece (due toour un-experience).4. However, about 30 minutes later, we were able to look and some stars, constellations (sadlynot the moon as we have to go to bed a little earlier that we expect because of a long work day)Were steal learning how to use it, how to get the better focus on the objects, to be able to seetheir "better look". However, for someone who havent previous experience with this, thetelescope is very friendly and easy to use, and the fact that you can just watch to an objectlooking on a catalog is very nice and simple.One of my hobbies is photography, so, Im expecting my T-ring/adapter to try on some pics.Ill be updating this review as the time passes and have more to say. Until now, we are veryhappy with our new "toy"10 of 10 people found the following review helpful.A great telescopeBy Ben HakalaTop notch. I am really happy with it.
