The blue carrying case was full of what seemed to be tiny spider webs. Not a huge deal but we were weirded out by it. Other than that we are mostly content with the telescope, although, as newbies we were ready to be stunned by the images and that didn’t really happen. I know at this price point I shouldn’t really expect to be wow’d. The automatic finder is awesome though.
Just getting back into astronomy after a few years. Good scope, tracks good with proper alignment. Everything arrived in great condition. OPT is #1 in my book. Thanks again.
I bought the ETX90 Observer so I would have a scope that was easy to handle. This year I'm 76 and my existing mount and scopes are just too heavy — I wanted something manageable and I saw the sale price on the ETX90 and thought why not? My older gear I had to take outside one heavy piece at a time and it took me an hour or so to get it all assembled and aligned and running. The ETX90 I can carry it out all assembled, almost ready to observe. Two minutes later, after aligning the mount I'm observing, less than five minutes from wanting to observe to observing — it's great! And the VERY nice Meade ETX90 Maksutov has exquisite optics, Venus at 150x is gorgeous, a very nice sharp crescent. M42 is also a treat, the trapezium easily seen as a collection of pinpoint stars. I truly hated to not give The Meade ETX90 Observer 5 stars, it really deserves 5 stars, but for the red dot finder. I could not align it with the OTA, it simply would not adjust far enough in one direction. The RDF was the worst component of the entire system. I put in an order for a new RDF (I do like them) and a few days later I installed and had it aligned a few minutes later and that night it saw first light and I was happily observing. But even with the RDF problem I would still buy the Meade ETX90 Observer again, the system is just too good to let a little thing like the cheap RDF squelch the deal! Very highly recommended!
Bought this as a gift and they were very helpful in picking out the right scope for my Dad.
I am very satisfied with my recent purchase of a Meade ETX-90. OPT was fast on the delivery and everything arrived as described. I was especially happy with the payment plan that was offered through OPT. It allowed me to purchase a higher quality telescope. In fact, that's a main reason I choose OPT.
