Good product
I'm an astrophotographer. So a good polar alignment is crucial to getting proper side-reel tracking. This makes setting up a good polar alignment much easier and faster. It arrived fast and well packaged. Installation of the polar alignment scop...

Circular
I received an email highly encouraging me to review these spacers. They are wonderful and circular! I find the circumference equal to two times pi and the radius.

Just what I needed
These were a perfect fit for my new Orion ST80. They are very well built with knobs that are easy to turn. Agena was nice enough to provide the weight even when I asked.

I bought this for a home made Dobsonian project, and it worked out great. Collllimation knobs are large and responsive, built in cooling fan saved me salvaging one from a PC, and multiple mounting options (for the cell, not the mirror of course) open...

Tele Vue T-Mount Adapter 2"
Like all Tele Vue products, this is a superbly machined piece of hardware, with excellent optical properties (anti-reflection). My only quibble is with the length of the barrel, a full 3" (see photo). The extra length can improve stability in so...

Great Eye Piece
I use binoculars that take 1.25 eye pieces. I purchased the Delos as an addition to one I already have (I use Delos with my scope as well). I find this eye piece to have the right field for my eye, and it is a great item for any collection.

Use this with my 8 inch dob and it great. Its heavy and big and awesome. Good eye relief and you can look around without the kidney beaning effect. Nice. Took off a star because of the greese on the threads.

A Fine Piece of Glass
I've been looking to get the widest FOV possible out of my SCT. I read up on the limits of apparent FOV for a 2" ocular at long FLs and the 40mm at 70 degrees is right around the limit. All I want from an eyepiece is pretty good at a decen...

A "must" for imaging
I had the GSO coma corrector I really liked using for visual. When I decided to use my 150mm F5 newtonian for imaging, I wanted a coma corrector that added no focal length. This is the corrector that does that and yields nice tight stars.

Excellent value for solar viewing. Solar film produces a nice sharp, orange solar image. A must for eclipse day in August 2017 for safe observation.

Perfect product. Within minutes of arrival I constructed a hand held sun gazing device from a tissue box. I looked t the sun, put it over my camera and took pics, then looked through it with small binoculars. Durable, clear film.
