Great advice and service, just need some clear sky Had a long chat before buying and received excellent advice. Delivered within 48 hours. Components seem sturdy and well made. Assembly was straightforward and the end result appears very stable. Just need some clear skies now (09/12/2017) David - West Sussex
Fantatstic! So I always used an orion astroview 90mm, and I always wanted a bigger refractor. I looked for Orion's SkyView refractor, but it had been discontinued. This is an amazing alternative and i highly reccommend as your primary refractor (01/02/2017) -
