Purchased this as a gift, and the people to whom I gifted the telescope seem to really like it. Additionally, the shipping of the item was prompt. Great site that I plan to use again in the future!
Our 4 yo grandson was elated!! Because of the awful weather lately, he has yet to use it to “look at the moon!” Perfect size for him as well!! Easily assembled. A hit!!!
Everything was in the bag. I like the weight making it easy to travel with it. That is also the problem. It is so light, the slightest tremble will make the image shake. The weather is too cold to take is outside to look at the night sky so I will be testing that next. The one problem I have is the remote shutter fir iPhone is not working and my email support to OPT has bp OPT been answered. I’m at a lost as to who to reach out to next to get a replacement. It may appear to be insignificant but remotely triggering the phone camera is really necessary otherwise there will be movement on the telescope and the image will be blurred.
I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my grandson. Unfortunately, it was back ordered and arrived some time after Christmas. However, the company was very kind in keeping me informed and diligent in delivering it ASAP. I was not with my grandson when he opened it, but my son tells me he was very excited and set it up immediately! Visibility was not good that evening so he couldn’t see much. But he is excited to continue observing and learning with it! He is a Boy Scout and looks forward to taking it on camping trips with him Overall, so far, we are satisfied with the product and your customer service.
putting the telescope together was rather easy and simple to do. Delivery was not good as becasue of pandemic it took 6 weeks to get to me.
I was a little reluctant seeing the price of the scope and wondering about the quality. However I would say for the money its an excellent item. I live in the Rocky Mountains and its awesome for looking at mountain peaks miles away. I own mostly reflectors as my telescope systems so its good to have a refractor I can do land views with.
