GSO 1.25" Plossl Eyepiece - 32mm
5.0
GSO 32mm Plossl eyepiece. First eyepiece in my telescope every session
Great price. Wide view of the sky. Very helpful locating objects for aligning my telescope. Every amateur astronomer needs a 32mm in his or her eyepiece kit & this is an economical way to get it.

So simple, so essential !
The two simple sets of easy to handle knobs are an essential tool for aligning both the secondary and the primary mirrors of the very fast (f/4) Vixen R200SS. The knobs can be easily turned by hand, which is a real boon by night and/or during an obse...

KK Fujiyama Ortho 9mm
I had an extended opportunity to compare this 9mm with the same focal length Takahashi Abbe ortho. I found them to be well matched and the difference is negligible. The eye relief and field of view are both on the small side by design and neither bot...

GSO 1.25" Crayford Focuser (with 176mm base plate) for Reflectors - Single Speed
5.0
Very pleased!
Excellent buy.
Focuser fit my Meade Polaris 130 perfectly.
Enlarging the opening to accommodate the focuser was easy using a 2 inch hole saw.
Changing the focuser on my Meade Polaris was well worth every penny spent.

Very happy
After a lot of research and reading lots of reviews to compare the Celestron with other brand products that apparently come out of the same factory, I decided to pay a bit more to get the Celestron one. I'm not disappointed. Nice clean optics, g...

I purchased this to replace the illuminator on a Tele Vue Starbeam finder, and it worked great!

Astronomy nut for 55 years.
I had bought Celestron LX eyepieces for my small scope. A Celestron 6”. They were nice, but suffered from blackouts if you’re eye position wasn’t perfect. These eyepieces have no optical quirks that I can detect. Great eye relief and pinpoint s...

GSO voyager style mount
So far have only used it 3x for my 4” F6 refractor. Lightweight. Beats my Gibraltar since it has larger bearing surfaces and slow motion controls. No instructions, but any can be configured for arm on left or right, terrestrial arm up or Astro arm ...

Bright
Bought this for my refractor, as I have one on my RC. This one is much brighter to the point that it washes out the point of view. Tried all the settings and even the lowest is too bright. It looks like the same one on my RC which is great , but not ...

Great product, great service from agena and WO
The rotolock mechanism works very well. I had a small issue and Agena reached out to William Optics for me and I had my answer very quickly. They sent a video showing exactly what to do. I'm a novice so I appreciate the help!

Very nice self centering eyepiece extension tibe
I bought this for the specific purposes to center my laser collimatot in my newtonian's focuser. This helped me achieve the very best mirror alignment I have ever seen! No set screws to make the tube go askew. I also used a threaded adaptor ring...

Shaky
Couldn’t stabilize a 4 in refractor. Shakes ~5 sec making focusing a chore. No setting circle and only one slow motion flex cable that’s 8mm (you cannot purchase additional one because everyone else is making 6mm) Very expensive and low feature ...

Newbies welcome
Agena courteously answered my (probably inane) questions, and helped me with eyepiece decisions without making me feel dumber than a bag of hammers. Seems they get that not everyone out there has 37 years of experience with astrophotography!
