We are very proud of our customer feedback, here are some examples:
You supplied a telescope to me, with hours to go before Christmas, for my husband's Christmas present. I've been meaning to write a review since then, and have finally carved out some time to do so! I'd be happy for you to add the following review to your website (with a 5 star rating!):
Despite being extremely busy, with only hours to go before closing for Christmas, Ed found time to give me some options and information about which telescope to buy for my husband for his Christmas present. Because I was so last minute I didn't expect to receive the 'scope in time, but it arrived the following day to the delight of my husband on Christmas morning. The scope itself is really well built and easy to set up even by novices and both my husband and son have been enjoying exploring the night sky my son has even started an Astronomy GCSE. My husband had a few queries about linking his phone to the telescope and Ed was always willing to help, and sent links for further information. We even found a link to our local Astronomy group (Heaton Park in Manchester) through the Harrison Telescopes web site and have joined up. Very happy with the advice, the telescope itself, the service and the after care. I would highly recommend Harrison Telescopes to anyone looking to buy equipment for astronomy.
I can only agree with other reviews regarding the fantastic customer service. I called to look into getting a new tripod/mount and explained the issue I had with my telescope set up and was given excellent advice on how to resolve it. It's good to know that there are still places that are still prepared to provide assistance when it's needed - They will be my first option when buying new equipment from now on
I have ordered several items from Harrison's and I have never been disappointed. An efficient and thoroughly excellent supplier of astronomical equipment. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Ted, hi Many thanks for the advice, and the adapter received yesterday. Perfect fit and a clear night to test the system! - everything worked as it should. Regards,
Have to say a big thank you Ed for helping me make my scope purchase decision, your advice and guidance was invaluable and I am delighted with the outcome.
Having read some adverse comments about the red dot finder, on the contrary, I found it very easy to set up and use. Each to there own I guess
No doubt there will be further questions down the line and I am sure, and hope, purchases, but full praise has to be given up to this point in time for the excellent standard of service I received - Delighted
To all at harrison telescopes
Many thanks to all with the delivery of my new celestron cpc 9.25. After a few problems that arose had a very quick phone call and everything sorted with no problems at all and no hassle, it is an absolute pleasure that harrison telescopes make sure that customers come first before anything else and make sure that customer is always happy. I would like to say THANKS very much for excellent service and would highly recommend to anyone. Once again thanks
Just a letter to thank you for your help and advice regarding the purchase of my (first) telescope. The erect image diagonal and moon filter arrived on Thursday (less than 24 hrs after ordering !) and the telescope arrived Friday lunchtime. Excellent !. Everything as it should be. The telescope was a breeze to assemble, and the quality exceeded my expectations. I have just come indoors after my first attempt at stargazing ! There was a lot of intermittent cloud early and mid evening, so I decided to try again a bit later. Around 10:45 the sky improved and I had my first view of the moon through a telescope. WOW.! Better than I could have imagined. Tracked and studied it for over an hour ! ! Then I focused on a bright object which had come into view. At first I thought that there was a fault in the eyepiece as there were four small bubble-like objects, one to the right, and three to the left of the light that I was looking at. Then I realised (as you probably have already!) that it was Jupiter. Fantastic. Found it by accident! Another hour tracking and studying. I then picked a few more random stars to study until my need for a mug of tea brought me back indoors.What a great first evening. And all of that with the 25mm eyepiece. Can't wait for Saturday night with the 9 mm.
Thanks again for your excellent service and input. I will,no doubt, contact you again when I need accessories etc. Regards David C M
Great service, I ordered the binoculars for a birthday gift and they arrived next day well packaged and would definitely recommend your company to friends...
It is exceedingly nice to be able to praise a firm's service. This order was placed at 11:37 yesterday, your "Dispatched" email came through at 11:56, and the item was delivered by Royal Mail first thing this morning - under 24 hours from thought to deliverance!
Many many thanks and I can assure you I will be extremely happy recommending you and will also be using your services again.
Thanks Harrisons I,ve ordered two scopes multiple eyepieces and have received everything within twenty four to forty eight hours all well packaged and protected. had difficulty with my meade ls and was even sent an sd card for free with the latest software! this is why i return again and again to Harrisons well done its great to deal with such a professional company.
I cannot recall when I last felt the need to sing the praises of a company, but I need to do it with Harrison telescopes, and especially Ed. From the very first contact, I have received a first class service and as a novice to this hobby I have been guided step by step, on equipment and set up . The customer service and care were second to none, speed of delivery amazing and troubleshooting invaluable. I recommend this as a fantastic place to shop. Yours gazing star ward
Amazing service. The tripod arived today.
Really appreciate the service which exceeded my expectations.
Ordered a SkyWatcher Startravel 120mm EQ3-2 Refractor Telescope on Monday evening, the order was processed and despatched on Tuesday and delivered to my specified delivery address on Wednesday.
The product was superbly packaged and with free delivery represents excellent value.
Thanks again for service second to none - I don't suppose you could arrange some clear nights for me????
Many thanks for your efforts and speed of service.
The Celestron 6SE, NexImage and Dew Shield all arrived by carrier before lunch time. The Power Supply by Royal Mail at 10.30am. Fantastic service and much appreciated.
Has been assembled and now awaits my wife's return so we can both have a go at aligning, this evening.
Just a few lines to thank you for all your help and excellent service regarding Meade Autostar #497.
Thanks very much, really appreciate the advice, especially so quickly and this late on a Saturday night. Brilliant service. I have ordered the rucksack from your site which is also a joy to use.
Please feel free to use this as a testimonial on the customer feedback page if you wish.
Just a quick note to all at Harrison's - After searching high and low for a paypal retailer you were the only one who stocked the specialist eyepiece filters i was after . . . Sally was very helpful in giving me information and the items came promptly, well packaged and Free From Dust ( you would be surprised how many companies send you that for free . . . ) I'm sure i shall use this company for years to come !
Sally, Thank you for the order below which I received today. It is always nice to deal with a company for whom customer relations are a priority, so no doubt I will put an order through you in the future.
Thank you again
