Good - but expensive for what it is A must for anyone who wants to use their smartphone for astro-imaging. Easy to use though, as often happens, the instructions are poorly written making a simple process look complicated. Why this level of professional incompetence is allowed to persist beats me. Especially at this hefty price. (04/05/2020) Alan - Warrington

Amazing little gadget I was going to buy the cheaper version but after speaking to Harrisontelescopes directly I decided to go for this, and boy they wasn't wrong. It works so well, nice design, easy to set up and use. Can fit any phone roughly any size, and it centres the phone camera to scope eyepiece with ease. A+ (21/07/2018) Ed - Surrey
