First time I used them I was impressed with the comfortable design and easily adjusted for personal use. Super water proof as I was caught in a sudden snow squall and the binoculars were coated in ice and snow. Only area of improvement I noticed on the first use was how loosely the covers for the largest lenses attached to the binoculars. In fact I lost one cover in my first outing. The binoculars are certainly worth the money I will be taping the remaining cover into place to prevent lose.
Ordered the scope and Matt had it shipped right away. There a couple problems with the delivery address and Matt was able to make a couple calls and I picked it up when I was in town. Great service!
Pros: This is a nice grab-and-go telescope. I gets good views of the planets and moon. And the brighter Messier Objects.
Cons: Wish primary mirror came center spotted. Had to do it myself.
I received the scope faster than I expected. Delivery time was great. Scope itself is great for a beginner like me. I saw moon and Jupiter with its four moons with this scope, but I immediately realized that magnification was not that great for viewing planets, so I had to order another eyepiece with greater magnification. I wish they included eyepiece with greater magnification. I would have bought a carry-bag had they offered it. Setup was also very easy. Mount is ok. I will recommend this scope and these guys. I will order again from these guys. Great service.
This telescope is wonderful. My family has really enjoyed using it to find planets and look at the sky. I’ve had many questions about set-up and accessories and Matt has been extremely helpful and always responsive to emails. I highly recommend Red Carpet.
the scope is everthing i expected i thought the shipping was pretty slow and could have been better handled
I bought one for myself for my birthday. Pretty easy to setup, you can see some really cool images on clear nights. I would recommend getting the deluxe pack- I didnt and my viewing experience is probably the lesser for it. The customer service is excellent as well
Had the opportunity to use these in the field. I am not a expert so this will be simple. Binos are nice and clear, they pick up lots of light, especially in the early morning/evening which is one of the main reasons for buying them. Easy to hold and adjust. Mine do have a tripod connection, just have to unscrew the leupold logo in the front- For those that this is important too.
Personal opinion: I would like the eye cups to be stiffer to adjust, but that's a minor complaint.
The carry case is garbage so expect to buy a new strap/case.
As far as binos go. I Love them, I will have them for a long time.
And Matt at RCT was great to deal with and made the purchase easy fast and better priced than anywhere else.
I contacted "Red Carpet Telescopes" because I was looking for a new pair of quality binoculars for my husband. I really wasn't sure what I wanted to buy with reference to the myriad options available to me in the marketplace, so I reached out to this company for advice. I was so glad that I did!
I talked to two different different representatives, who were both kind, patient and helpful, as well as extremely knowledgeable about the various products offered. They seemed happy to assist and explained in detail, the differences between the models that were available. There was never any pressure to buy, but in the end, I knew I wouldn't buy from anyone else. This company is absolutely amazing - a knowledgeable sales team, quality products and fast easy payment/shipping ... a dream to work with!! The binoculars were just what my husband was looking for - the quality is amazing and the warranty can't be beat. This will definitely be my "go to" shop!! Great company!!
Put it on display in our living room and it is absolutely gorgeous!! We sometimes take this outside to stargaze and check things from miles away.
When my friends came over to my flat, they couldn't stop complimenting this magnificent telescope. They were equally taken aback when I told them it was real and that they could use it to see objects from miles away!
Most telescopes that I've been seeing online don't have an included tripod, which can be straining not only for your back but also your neck. It's a good thing every telescope here in RCT comes complete with accessories. I actually had a hard time choosing which one to buy, but finally settled for this one because of its classic look and affordable price.
My twins love everything about the cosmos and nature, so I decided to buy this beginner and budget-friendly telescope. It's easy to assemble, has a sturdy tripod, and excellent optics.
This stunning item arrived two days after I placed an order. I put it alongside our antique collection and it just enhanced the look of that area.
Great zoom lens for a great solar scope. Do much easier than switching out lenses for magnifying for detail
An amazing scope. The filter is top notch and the clarity of the optics are fantastic.
The gift was perfect, engraving was done beautifully and shipped quickly! A+++
The product arrived before the said date and is absolutely stunning, just as shown in the photos. Good thing that the stand is adjustable since my boyfriend and I are quite tall, so it's not straining our backs whenever we're using it.
It looks classic with the brass and leather accents. The tripod stand is sturdy and fully adjustable up to 62-inches, which is perfect for my stature!
Excellent service, merchandise arrived on time as promised.
Red Carpet Telescopes has the best prices on metal detector search coils. I researched and am glad I did. Red Carpet Telescopes kept me informed on my order and ship status. The item arrived quickly and I'm very pleased. Thank you!
Got my gold bug 2 metal detector on time. Like they said. Employees were very nice,
They are my go-to place for all things metal detecting.
Thanks guys, good job!
The glass optics really offer a clear view even after 15 times of magnification. So far, it has stood up nicely to daily usage, and I have no issues with its quality and functionality.
I just bought the Midas HMR for my CZ527 chambered in 223.
It’s Super Clear compared to the Vortex Diamondback that I replaced. It feels tight and solid and I’m looking forward to putting it to the test with some cold Canadian coyote hunts and ground hogs at a distances.
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.
