Excellent Service

Product was perfect, exceeded expectations. Customer support was friendly and adaptive. Great service and great product.

Great viewing

This telescope packs an unexpected punch. Crisp viewing in day or night. Outfitted with a 2″ 7mm/110 degree APM eyepiece, this lightweight, grab-and-go telescope does not disappoint when observing the sun in white light (my primary use) or taking in both planetary and deep space objects.

Top Notch Customer Service and Great Products

I sent an email regarding shipping times (I was hoping to get the telescope by Christmas Eve) and received a reply email within an hour. Better, the telescope arrived as described and packaged well before Christmas. A+ all the way!!!!

Great service at a better price

RRD Carpet Telescopes was recommended by one of my friends and I am delighted to share that they are very customer oriented and very knowledgeable. Shipping was very quick and I received the ordered item on time. They also gave me a 5% discount - no one else had that offer. Thank you

Excellent telescope

I purchased this telescope in order to capture images. It is an excellent telescope and is exactly what I needed! Great quality!

Delivered as promised

I bought this telescope for my son, and it was delivered on time, beautifully engraved. Thank you.

Great product. Good price

Fast shipping. Used it one time so far to find metal caps I lost in a wooded area. Still learning all the capabilities it has to offer.

5 Stars!

Great deal. Fast shipping. Son very happy with this item.

He Loves It!

I bought this telescope for my husband for Christmas and he says he loves it he has been looking at the stars every night since Christmas Great buy and the stand is perfect!

Excellent for the price

I'm not one to say much about glass quality as I haven't looked threw many spotting Scopes. To my eye the glass is as clear as the votex viper hd but this scope costs a bunch less then the viper. This athlon ares 15-45x65 is much much better then the gosky 20-60x80 that I have been using in fact I can see more at 45 power with the athlon then I can at 60x with the gosky. I love how small and compact the athlon is aswell it will fit in one of the pockets on my back pack leaving room in the main bag for food and other important things. The help and support from redcarpet has been awsome I will be buying more products from them in the future 5 stars for their service

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

Great product.
Very user friendly.
Too quality, very well made. I strongly recommend anything from Athlon.


This was the first time I did business with Red Carpet. To be honest I never heard of them before. I was looking for a specific scope and ran across them by accident. I took a leap of faith and ordered from them. I was a bit of a headache…not totally my fault mind you but I must have ordered and canceled several times and they were very accommodating. When the item finally came back into stock they contacted me directly and got my order completed promptly. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Great product

Works perfectly. Set this up on my small refractor and viewed the sun with no problem.

Seamless transaction after the friendly, expert staff consultation to assure I was able to make the best overall decision for our family.
Shall revisit and additionally recommend their "home items" section, especially pre-Christmas!,

We ordered 50 custom engraved compasses for our company to use as awards. Everything from the product to the packaging is top notch. And the customer service was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Very good quality and ease of use for a beginner like my son. He loves it!

Purchased as a Gift

I was delighted to locate a company such as Red Carpet Telescopes. I wanted to purchase a gift for my finance and decided to buy a telescope. However, I knew nothing about such a product. I googled and located Red Carpet. I was surprised that when I called, someone answered the phone. I don’t know about you, but I like to speak with humans when making a significant decision. The Red Carpet representative was very knowledgeable regarding their products and helped me understand the difference in products to make an educated choice. I honestly rate them with the highest mark possible and encourage anyone looking to purchase a telescope, contact Red Carpet; you will be happy you did. I have taken the product out of the box yet because it is a Christmas gift. This evaluation is of the service I received. After I unpack the product, I will update my feedback. However, the sales representative was so knowledgeable that I am confident with my purchase from Red Carpet.

Best binoculars in this price range.

This my second pair of Allen binoculars. They rival binoculars in the $500 - 800 range. Very little edge distortion. The field of view is wonderful. Be advised that they are heavier because of the large lenses. Solid construction. I mainly use the for warbler birding.

Matt is great to work with. Made sure an expensive scope arrived safely. Best prices too. Are

Able to see the Golden Gate Bridge from our deck in San Mateo!

With this telescope we are actually able to see the Golden Gate Bridge from our deck in San Mateo. The telescope looks expensive and classy, and is a big hit with everyone who comes through the door. At a large family gathering on Thanksgiving it got even more attention than the ping pong table!

Great glass for the price

rifle scope
