Nice but the mount could be more stable,
This review is from: Orion 9024 AstroView 90mm Equatorial Refractor Telescope (Electronics)
I have been trying to use this telescope for shooting photos. The mount is not very stable and it's very difficult to get accurate polar alignment. Tightening the azimuth causes the whole assembly to shift by several degrees. It seems like a nice starter scope though. The moon is very crisp with lots of detail and no color distortions.

There is no way a $300 scope, mount, tripod combo will be any good for astro photography. Astro photographers use motorized mounts that cost at least $300 by themselves.
