    Received faster than I expected!

    In a market where shortages are prevalent, I got my telescope 2 months from order date. I was expecting to wait over 6 months. Everything was expertly packed. I’ve ordered accessories too and everything was received flawlessly. I highly recommend OPT for all your stuff. 5 thumbs up!

    Amazing telescope

    I am very pleased with this telescope. It is very easy to assemble, and it probably only took me ten minutes to assemble. It’s an amazing telescope for beginner or amateur astronomers. Operating the telescope was simple, after I got the hang of it. It operates smoothly and has a great battery life. I could easily locate several of my favorite deep sky objects such as Andromeda galaxy and the Orion Nebula. Although this telescope is computerized, it can also be used and adjusted manually, if you know where to look. I used the telescope manually on my first night because I wanted more time to figure out how everything worked. I will most likely invest in some more eyepieces and accessories in the future. I am very happy with my purchase and the exceptional customer service along the way.

    Celestron 9.25 NexStar Evolution

    My first outing, I found Jupiter and Saturn easily. Alignment went well after I figured out that I needed to take my phone off of auto sleep for the duration. The gear drives functioned flawlessly, and the battery power provided by the lithium phosphate battery is more than enough for a full viewing session. I’m setting funds aside now for a zoom lens and more powerful lens with more elements. This scope was exactly what I expected and has performed perfectly. OPT is my vendor of choice.
