The Maksutov-Cassegrain design of the C90 utilizes a mix of mirrors and lenses; this "folded" optical system has a focal length of 1250mm in a body just twelve inches long. The Maksutov design provides high power views without a trace of the chromatic aberration, likewise called blue fringing, that can misshape high power views in contending refractor style spotting scopes. At 40X zoom where some low expense spotting scopes start to appear fuzzy, the C90 is just getting going. The C90 utilizes the exact same 1.25 inch eyepieces utilized in huge telescopes. The basic devices 32mm plossl eyepiece yields a magnification of 39X, but many other eyepieces can be utilized to vary the zoom.
The Celestron design 52268 appears extremely well developed, with outstanding multi-coatings noticeable on the front lens. The real beauty of this 90mm Maksutov spotting scope, however, is in the view it provides. When I utilize an optional 12.5 mm eyepiece to look at Jupiter at 100X I can plainly see Jupiter's major cloud bands as well as its 4 moons. When I look at the Moon and stars I can easily push the zoom to 200X with an optional 6mm eyepiece. When I look at birds in the backyard, I'm dealt with to wonderful views full of lively color and crisp detail. With a close focus distance of just 15 feet, the detail and texture I see is merely amazing.
High zoom watching requires a solid tripod, of course. Celestron's Sturdy Altazimuth Tripod features slow motion controls to enable the scope to be pointed precisely, and I can clamp the dovetail base upon my CG5 mount for huge use. The other downside to high zoom watching is a narrow field of view; high zoom makes it tough to follow moving targets like birds in flight. In general the Celestron C90 Maksutov Spotting Scope does a fine task as a companion to good pair of binoculars. The C90 likewise doubles as a portable astronomy scope; it won't show the flag on the Moon but it will show countless craters on the Moon as well as showing the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn.--Jeff Phillips
