The telescope is so cool! It's perfectly sized, and is easy to set up for nighttime backyard viewing. As a beginner, I still need to learn enough stars so that I can align it, but my views of the moon are just awesome. My first scope has inspired the family :)
B/C covid, more peeps are discovering astronomy causing high demand and longer backorders. OPT kept me updated and eventually delivered our nice new scope! Thanks!
I’m a beginner and boy, there’s a lot to learn. That being said, customer service has been excellent and the products I purchased are top quality.
Got this telescope for my son and I to use. It's perfect for what we need. Got a great deal on it from OPT and their team explained to me how to use it including set up as well. Definitely would recommend this to anyone getting into the hobby.
I have this scope. Funny thing , though. The last time I went to use it i noticed that the plastic housing around the secondary on the back of the corrector plate had slightly melted causing the inside of the corrector plate to be totally hazed over with a white coating. Now you may think there is a quite simple explanation to this, but exclude having the scope out to ever view the sun and exclude having the scope out until the sun has almost set. Go figure!
I have wanted a telescope for years and finally decided on this Nexstar telescope. The go-to was pretty easy to use, the telescope is light and easy to move around and everything was able to be set up in just a few minutes. The view through the telescope was very nice and I also use it to look at boats and other daytime targets. I am happy with the telescope.
