      Explore Scientific First Light 102mm with Twilight tripod.

      This is my Christmas gift so I haven't tried it out yet.
      I did put it all together to make sure everything was okay as it should be.
      Everything fit fine and no pieces were missing.
      Shipping was a day later than predicted, but that was fine.
      From what I can tell this scope is well built.
      Most of the parts are metal.
      I can't wait to try it out.
      Great job Red Carpet.
      A great deal.
      Oh, I also got a 35 dollar discount from Red Carpet

      My upgrade

      This is my second telescope, an upgrade from my old reflector. The optical quality is quite impressive (especially for the price). My only complaint was that I was missing the smartphone adapter when the shipment arrived. However - Red Carpet Telescopes was very helpful and quick in sending me the missing adapter! Great customer service.
