Fantastic Customer Service
Ordered this telescope in the afternoon after the despatch deadline yet I received it the next day! Its not often you find companies that provide a first class customer service so I would like to give credit for that and it was very much appreciated.
Telescope was packaged well. It appears to be very stable and easy to set up. My son tells me that what took him 15 mins to align on a previous telescope he has done in 1 minute. He is very impressed with it so far and looking forward to this evening to be able to use it."
