Celestron NexStar 130 SLT is hard-to-use, expensive, and full of flaws. The quality of the optical tube and the 2″ focuser are the only compensations.

Celestron NexStar 127 devours planets.

Celestron NexStar 90 SLT has a significant problem; there is no battery.

Celestron NexStar 102 SLT is too expensive to have significant flaws.

Meade ETX 125 is a major improvement over ETX 80 and ETX 90, but the improvement is costly.

Meade ETX 90 has a great optical tube attached to a poorly executed, plastic motor mount.

StarNavigator NG 90 Refractor has a major problem; the tripod.

Meade StarNavigator NG 125 is the most powerful of the StarNavigator line, and the best one. 

Meade StarNavigator NG 90 is a great planetary performer…but it has its flaws.
