5.0 out of 5 stars sweet scope, February 5, 2009
This review is from: Orion 9024 AstroView 90mm Equatorial Refractor Telescope (Electronics)
Right off the bat, Yeah, I`m a beginner but I have had in my lifetime 3 of the department store variety of telescopes that easily cost 150.00 or better and they will never be anything like this Orion Astroview. Hear this. I tracked a jumbo jet you could barely see with the naked eye except for the vapor trail with the slow motion control for 15 seconds and it was awesome. Saw it from almost a head on view and could see all the engines wings and tail wing with clarity I couldn`t believe. Joked with my brother that I could see the pilot picking his nose. ( Kidding of course ). This with a barlow lense. It sucks that I work nights and have to hope for clear weekends but let me tell you the price for this kind of viewing can`t be beat as far as I`m concerned. I`m going to take it to my brother`s this weekend and show him how to polar align the scope then watch his expression when he sees Saturn. I bet he`ll want one. I bet he`ll get one.
