      First Refractor

      I already have a reflector. And I Look forward to using the refractor.
      What got me interested was looking at the instructions on U Tube and most of these were using were refractors like mine. You should be proud.

      Great customer service and telescope

      Very nice telescope, the views are great at low and mid magnifications. Customer Service is excellent.

      Awesome Telescope

      This telescope model was a joint xmas gift in December. My wife and I had recently moved into an area where dark starry nights are plentiful. A telescope purchase was top of the list for our new home. We're very happy with the quality of this telescope. The image quality seem's to impress all who look into the viewfinder.

      Budget friendly

      I was recently introduced to star gazing through a local singles Astronomy meet-up group. I quickly decided that I wanted to buy a my own telescope. This explore scientific model fit my budget perfectly. Well made, stable tripod and with great optics.
