The DS series scopes are made of 95% plastic. Please don`t buy one.

Pocono Mountain Optics sells the Meade 390 - 90mm Alt-Az Refractor for $239

Orion sells the Orion Skywatcher 90mm EQ Refractor for $359

The SkyView Deluxe 4.5" EQ Newtonian for $388 is even better. you will be able to see much more with the 4.5" than the 90mm. and the Mount that comes with it is the best in its price range.

Any one of these is a MUCH better scope than the Meade DS series scopes.
