Very Nice Bracket
I have a variety of finders, DRF/GLP/RACI, all of which mount on this type of finder bracket. This unit is very well made, not sloppy, and my finders fit very well. It mounts to the TeleVue clamshell without any slop, etc, using the supplied screws. ...

It does as advertised
A great product for OAGs! I required this for the Orion Thin Off Axis Guider to bring a Lodestar X2 into focus. It's easy to install and does it job well.

A welcome addition to any rig
This little hand-warmer/red light is perhaps one of the most welcome additions to any astronomer's rig. It pulls double duty as a hand-held heater and a bright red LED light. The only drawback is everyone will want to borrow it and will drain th...

I ordered and received the X-06 (80mm extension)
What can I say, it's a 2" tube, well made, looks good, works without issue.

Lunt 60. B600. Pressire tuner
Didn't have a chance to "try before buy" on this product, which made me a little nervous. I love it! Everything about it. Even the crayford focuser.

Excellent Adapter
I was looking for a package on my SCT (to replace the 1.25” visual back) that would support both 1.25” and 2” accessories and thread to the SCT directly. This in combination with the Blue Fireball 2” to SCT Adapter performed the job admirably...

Good quality mounting base
I bought this to attach a finder scope to my Parallax mounting rings.
It works just fine and the build quality looks like it will last. All my
red dot and right angle finders fit it fine.

32mm Masuyama 2" Eyepiece
I used this eyepiece last night in my 10 inch f5 Dob and obtained terrific views of the ETA carina nebula and the large Magellanic cloud around the Tarantula nebula. The eyepiece has terrific clarity that really made the nebula stand out in almost a ...

Click it and fix it.
The Baader 2" Zeiss thread Click lock really works. No more twisting or screwing something together. Just a quick movement and the lock clicks and the eyepiece is SOLID. No sliding or slipping. And another quick click and it releases. The thing ...

Agena Large Laser Pointer Bracket
I am a Senior (= 'older') Astronomer and the Red Dot Finders just do not work for me. I tried the small 0.5” diameter, 5mW, Green laser pointers that use 2 AAA batteries, but they are dim and die in Cold weather. The Large Agena StarGu...

Blue Fireball 2" to 1 1/4 " Eyepiece Adapter
I like the adapter mostly. Eyepieces catch on the rim just below the copper ring and you have to jiggle them to get them slid all the way into the adapter. Maybe that is how they all work. Other than that I like the adapter. Service from Agena AstroP...

12.5mm Baader Morpheus
Great EP, I had a Nagler T-4 12mm and a 10mm Televue Delos to compare with, the Baader faired so well that I sold the other two, the Delos is sharp to the edge and the Nagler is close as well, the 12.5mm Morpeus isn't as sharp to the edge as the...

GSO 90mm tube rings
Recommended. These rings are well made. I bought these to use with both a ST90 and 900mm 90mm scopes which have slightly different tube diameters and they work well with both. The latch is more convenient to use than some other brands because I only ...

HoTech 1.25
HoTech 1.25" SCA Laser Collimator - Single Dot
5.0
No more running back and forth
Great when using on any scope when it it longer than the space between your eye and your hand. As long as you can see the red dot and know when it centers on the palate, collimating becomes a little easier. Make it a one man job.
