Ordered on 11/30. My daughters birthday was on 12/19. Missed that. 12/21 was alignment of Saturn and Jupiter conjunction. Once every 400 years. Missed that. Paid $40 for delivery. Finally arrived on 12/24. Made it for Christmas. Working well. Not able to use 3x Barlow lens. The 20mm lens is good.

Excellent online service,

This is not the first telescope I’ve purchased from you, but the first I’ve purchased online. The process was simple and fast, even for this old Man. And it was delivered Days ahead of schedule. The telescope was purchased as a gift so I’m unable to comment about it at this time. My purchase was made strictly on my past experience with your staff and your reputation. As a OCA member for over twenty years I’m not unfamiliar with OPT.
