- very happy
The summer is not the best time for clear night skies but my friend had some magnificent experiences already and is very pleased with the machine. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
Ozscopes were excellent. Delivery was fast and they were very helpful. The telescope is heavy, so be warned, and you will need to be acquainted with EQ mounts and general set up as it didn’t come with any paperwork, but if need be Google and Youtube can help with this. I am also struggling to focus my Nikon D3100 DSLR with the T ring and T adapter purchased separately and so have bought a Barlow lens which is now yielding good results.
The first few nights use opened up a whole new world of stargazing to me. Viewing the Moon through the large aperture with the 25mm and 10mm eyepieces reveals incredible detail and is something I will never tire of. Star hopping continually reveals new clusters and formations and all this in a moderately light-polluted area.
This telescope provides exceptional images for the price and is a great investment that’ll return many years’ worth of stargazing enjoyment without requiring you to purchase anything bigger. If you are looking at an amateur level, intermediate ‘scope, it’s worth paying that bit extra to get quality images and many years of use. Highly recommended. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
- Second Review still outstanding
After experimenting with the scope tube (easily removed from the tripod using easy finger knobs and hinged assembly), mark the tube and mounting bracket with a spot of nail varnish. Take outside to line up the dots and thats it. this scope is already outstanding quality but when combined with the celestron eye piece and filter kit man u got it all. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
