Designed for beginners or as a simple grab-and-go option for more advanced astronomers, Celestron's updated NexStar 90 GT v.2 90mm f/10 GoTo Refractor Telescope features a large, but still easy-to-manage, 90mmm aperture with a long 910mm focal length. This complete observation rig includes the optical tube assembly, the NexStar computer controller, a motorized mount, an aluminum tripod, two eyepieces, a 90° diagonal, and a 5x24 finderscope. The rack-and-pinion focuser accepts the star diagonal that corrects images vertically for terrestrial use. The two eyepieces produce 46x and 228x magnifications to offer users a range of options for observing the Moon or planets, or to scan the sky for satellites, asteroids, or comets.

The OTA is mounted on a single-arm motorized alt-az mount. Guiding the mount is the NexStar computer hand controller. Packed with over 40,000 objects and flash updateable via the Internet, the NexStar is loaded with features to help users align and find objects in the night sky, including guided tours, automatic tracking rates for near and deep-sky objects, and multiple slew speeds. Supporting the OTA and mount is an aluminum adjustable height tripod. The entire rig assembles and breaks down without the need for tools, letting you set up faster and start observing sooner.

    NexStar 90 GT v.2 90mm f/10 GoTo Refractor Telescope is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge telescope for very reasonable price! Got it few days ago, today finally went to get some sun and nature pics with D7000 attached. Thanks to Celestron T-Mount SLR Camera Adapter for Nikon F-Mount photography is a snap. That's all you need to make it work as 1365mm lens on crop sensor. Don't buy 1.25 to T-Mount Adapter as it is totally unnecessary, this telescope comes with T-Mount thread ring build it!!! For sun pictures I got MrStarGuy Adjustable Objective White Light Solar Filter (86-117mm OD). Sun was very hard to get manually into the viewfinder, so I had to use telescopes shadow as an aid. Did not try using NexStar yet, sorry! Lots of pros: 1. Easy to set up and use. 2. Great optics for viewing. Fairly dissent for DSLR, just image quality goes down due to achromatic aberration, lock of any sort of VR and tripod and mount not being solid-steady for this huge focal length. 3. T-Mount thread build in. 4. Geared focusing. 5. Minimal DSLR focusing distance is about 50 feet at 1365mm focal length. So far biggest con are: 1. Enormous size. 2. Cumbersome tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Telescope!! Its a little confusing but I think the other model with the red dot finderscope has been replaced with this model with the optical finderscope, AND at a better price!!! I much prefer an optical finderscope to a red dot finderscope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Deal B&H is selling the Celestron Nexstar 102 SLT for over $400 and this looks like a better telescope. AND you get a free weather station. I was thinking of buying an SLT but this looks like a MUCH better deal

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A decent value scope Ive used this scope for visual and astrophotography. The Nexstar aligns easily and goes to the objects entered well. Dont expect long exposure, but Ive had some good results 5-10 sec, ISO 3200, Nebula, planetary and moon shots. I would say a great scope for a beginner, a stepping-stone.
