Is this your first scope?
Too often that first scope purchase is a matter of fact announcement to
the group, followed by the question of whether it is the right choice.
What constitutes the right choice, is a damnable question. If you really
want to keep the expense down to a paltry $200. You really should hook
up with some local amateurs who have equipment you can try.
Again, I assume this is a first scope, just in case. There are certainly
better choices out there than a 90mm fast achromat.
That said, I'm a true advocate and believer that any scope is a good
scope, provided you learn something. The problem with being that kind of
advocate, is that it can be expensive for the person taking that advice.
So, if you really want to do well for your money, why not start over,
announce your budget, and then ask which scopes are available in that range.
You'll still get the same advice, but at least we'll start on the right
foot, both now, and when you come back for your second scope.
