Better than advertised
From the start I was impressed with the Orion company because of the way the product was shipped. It was securely packed with and outer shopping box and an inner product box. On the outside of the product box, Orion listed the name and the specs p...

Guiding Made Easy
I purchased the ZWO and mated it with the Agena 60mm guide scope. This allowed for a threaded connection between them to help minimize some flexure. Took a couple of minutes to load the drivers, set up PHD2 and done. It really was that easy.

An excellently crafted piece. Most of all however I appreciated the time an effort that your customer service person spent in making sure that it was a compatable piece for my equipment.

Good fit on Solarmax 60mm
Comes with 2 mounting screws. Screws are short enough they won't protrude through the rings and damage scope.
Dovetail has a hole in the center, and two slots that together cover almost the full length of the dovetail.

Not what I expected
The moon filter I got was a black plastic material (rather than metal or aluminum) with grooves that didn't thread into my eyepiece.

Great eyepeice
The 20mm SWA is awesome. I'm fairly new at Astro observing. I've only been telescoping for about 3 years. But, I know a good product when I see one. Of all the eyepeices I have, the Agena is right at the top. I wear glasses and with the lon...

Extremely expensive
I does the job. This is a basic 1.25" mirror diagonal (that would cost $50) with an ITF (the maier photonics equivalent would cost $75 and the BelOptik equivalent about $200) and the blocking filter itself. This mens that we are paying about $35...

Fine Focuser for SCT
I purchased this for use on my C8. I find the operation of it very smooth, but ran into a big issue on my 40+ year old C8 in that the old scopes have an issue with the thread depth and I can't install it as it should be on my scope. I did get it...
