Would Buy from Red Carpet Again!

I initially contacted Red Carpet after a disappointing email conversation with another major supplier who would not agree to talk to me on the phone (only email inquiries allowed!). Matt at Red Carpet, on the other hand, was more than willing to talk with me, answer all of my questions, and advise me on what telescope made the most sense for me. Matt was also very good at keeping me informed about delivery schedule. My new telescope is great!

New user review

Having only had a short clear sky window to try the scope out, I can only give an initial impression. I loved the image produced, but it took way to long to setup and locate the sun. You definitely need a solar finder scope, and I recommend an umbrella or observing shield blanket to work under. I am not sure how to set the pressure tuner, but was able to focus in for awesome views of prominences and flairs. I suspect as I learn to setup faster and in time I would be able to raise my rating, but had so much trouble the one time that I am not fully happy.

Met all my expecations!

I was using a Coronado PST before and without double-stacking it, there was not much to be seen at all whereas this one gave me breathtaking views right out of the box. I am not disappointed, Lunt make superior products. Thank you again Matt for your assistance!
