Product knowledge and Customer service was exceptional, delivery was ahead of schedule and price was 5% better than the competition. I will most certainly be back to Red Carpet for my next optics purchase.
Just wanted to give a shout out to Matt for providing me with an amazing customer service standard that is indeed very hard to come by these days, both friendly and knowledgeable!
Thank you Matt!
One of my favorite eyepiece I own. I have a 8" dobsonian. great field of view I use it as a observing eyepiece and a finder eyepiece. Objects are ultra clear and bright. Great for spiral galaxies, nebulae and starclusters. It is well made and feels solid. I read a ton of reviews on astronomy forums for eyepieces and decided on this one. It is worth the $200 I spent for this eyepiece I'm glad I purchased it. Before I used a 25mm sirius plossel, this is quite a bit better. Thanks Red carpet it was in stock and very fast shipping a very easy transaction.
Great eyepiece objects are very clear. It is great for star clusters to get more pinpoint detail.
during shipment the lid was damaged, a replacement is on the way and the response to remedy the situation was prompt. The overall quality of the telescope is average, I was hoping for a more stable focuser and stronger tube wall, the scope is used for photography and the camera is not rock solid when attached. The early images are OK, i was hoping for a little more accuracy, or pinpoint stars (I am using a high quality coma corrector). I like the carrying case and handle on the scope.
Friend recommended them and they are great
This piece truly is spectacular. Clear magnification and just an elegant design. It made the perfect gift.
Alpen makes an awesome pair of binoculars! Really happy with the sale and product.
Very smooth zoom. The picture quality is very sharp.
Very nice telescope, the views are great at low and mid magnifications. Customer Service is excellent.
While I’m a novice with telescopes, I did do a good deal of research before purchasing the Explore First Light 130mm telescope. All in all I’m very pleased with this purchase as well as the service provided by Red Carpet Telescopes. The order process was straightforward. Shipping was prompt and delivery was on-time. My only suggestion for improvement is for Explore Scientific to create a better website to support their customers since the paper instructions that came in the box did not contain any words (only pictures) which would have been OK had larger photos been used instead of small graphic illustrations. I was able to locate a nice You Tube video that provided helpful insight. Regardless, Of all that, I’m very pleased with the quality of this telescope and would recommend it and Red Carpet Telescopes to anyone.
Great customer service, great product and a speedy delivery. A birthday present for my wife, she is excited about the product. I earned great husband points.
I live across the street from a beautiful forest. Glad I choose this cool spotting scope to view all that nature has to offer on my doorstep. Easy to focus and the images are sharp.
