Good scope good price
Friday, 8 May 2020  | 

As a beginner this was all the scope I could want at a great price. Service and deliver was fast and efficient the one thing I would say is that the mount takes some getting used to but will definitely shop here when I am ready for an upgrade.

First telescope

Great first telescope, looking at the moon and be able to see details is something special. All of the accessories you can add are nice, to upgrade your setup, depending on usage (astrophotography).

Amazing
Wednesday, 29 April 2020  | 

It's a little hard to set up for beginners but it's amazing after looking through the first night seeing Venus.
The book is very insight and full of information which is great as a starting point. If I had more room I would buy another one

Purchased Celestron 130EQ
Wednesday, 7 December 2016  | 

Want to thank you for a very swift sevice. Ordered my telescope from you on the 7th December and it arrived on the 9th. That was on std 3-5 day delivery. The couriers were not i dont think one of the usual big ones as they arrived in an unmarked van but were very good and asked if I could manage as was a large and heavy box. So well impressed with them.
The packaging was impressive not excessive but very well protected. So far as assembly, I had watched the video a couple of times and had it on as I was putting it together. The one in the video was slightly different to mine so not quite the same assemblyy but very similar. One thing I learned putting it together is to curb the enthusiasm and do it slowly will recheck everything today as really need to get this balance thing right. Was fighting to get done before the clouds set in. Failed there although did get a quick glint at Venus and was impressed how big it appeared against my old scope.
One thing I am a little puzzled about is the amount of people in some of the reviews I read complaining about the red dot being on all the time, Don't know if mine is a different model but mine has a switch on it to turn it of???.
Another thing puzzled me was someone actually said you need a huge storage area for it well if you unclip the telescope from the stand and fold that up it takes up very little space and takes less than a minute to reasemble.
All I will be waiting for now is a cloudless night and hopefully will get some good viewing as I am in a good dark location.
All in all I am very impressed with this Telescope and have already advised a friend to get one from you, as she is in to astonomy. I also like the versatility and will now be saving up for the other attachments for my camera and Barlow lens and filters.
Once again very impressed with the build quality etc.
Big thumbs up from me and will be looking to you for my photography bits etc in future.
Have attached photo of scope ready to store with a wine bottle for size comparison.
