Like the flip on cover, the ease of use, and setup. The only drawlback is that you really need a steady platform (hand held is a poor option) to view anything. Moon watching and birding are both good with the 90mm. Pros: Durable rubber exterior, e.z. to handel Cons: Slight distortion on edges, hard to hold steady without a tripod

Nicely designed scope, but suffers a little from cheaply executed parts (plastic finder mount, poor fitting dustcaps, plastic erecting prism). Optics are acceptable, and the nitrogen filled and sealed tube means no fogging or water damage issues when in the field. Scope is on the heavy side, so make sure you have a solid tripod to mount it on. Pros: Price, Waterproof, Solidly built, Case included Cons: Plastic erecting prism and finder mount

I've used it as the best spotting scope that I've ever used. Nice as a compact telescope but, I haven't developed the photos that I've taken through it yet so no comment on it's use as a telephoto lens.

I use this scope to voiew the seals in front of our house. It offers great magnification due to its 1200mm focal length, yet is compact and weatherproof. Quality feel to this scope. Also use it to view the moon and planets. Pros: Short, long focal lenght, waterproof Cons: a little less contrast than e refractor of course
