                                                          Telescope Review

                                                          Another company promised delivery of a telescope by December 11 after I ordered in September. After extensive searching, Red Carport Telescopes was the only company that had any available telescopes & promised to deliver before Christmas. You did & I was able to keep Santa’s promise to my 6 year old grand daughter. You saved the day. The telescope Is great. The only negative is the assembly instructions provided by the telescope company was pictures only, not any written instructions. I found an excellent UTube video that provided all the needed instructions.

                                                          Scott M.
                                                          I’m Happy!

                                                          While I’m a novice with telescopes, I did do a good deal of research before purchasing the Explore First Light 130mm telescope. All in all I’m very pleased with this purchase as well as the service provided by Red Carpet Telescopes. The order process was straightforward. Shipping was prompt and delivery was on-time. My only suggestion for improvement is for Explore Scientific to create a better website to support their customers since the paper instructions that came in the box did not contain any words (only pictures) which would have been OK had larger photos been used instead of small graphic illustrations. I was able to locate a nice You Tube video that provided helpful insight. Regardless, Of all that, I’m very pleased with the quality of this telescope and would recommend it and Red Carpet Telescopes to anyone.

                                                          Small purchase for the cabin

                                                          I purchased this telescope early summer for my god kids when they visit my lakeside cabin. Needless to say, it has been a huge hit with them.
