Solar Telescope
Delivery to Australia was surprisingly fast, without any problems, well packaged and have used this scope more often than all the times with my usual night scope. Extremely happy that I choose Agena AstroProducts.

Meade LX600 with Tripod - ordered from Agena
I am very satisfied with the delivery of my new LX600. From my order, it arrived surprisingly promptly, delivered by truck on a pallet. No shipping damage which I was very happy to see. I had no trouble assembling the scope and was observing the next...

A perfect balance of power, portability, and price!
Don’t be fooled by its modest 100mm aperture; this instrument takes planetary and lunar viewing to the next level! Targets come alive at the eyepiece with stunning detail, and superb contrast. See the Planets as you’ve never seen them before, in ...

Great telescope
This is a great telescope, but the tripod & mount on it is a weakness. It is poorly designed for doing any photography work as vibrations from refocusing and movement translates to the scope due to the mount only having one arm. This is NOT somet...

Very good telescope
Very good telescope with good optics and quality in its construction. Fine termination. I already have a 200/1000 and it has given me many satisfactions. It also at an incredible price.

Solid Glass provides good basis for tweeking
This doublet is done in the reverse of the typical mix of ED & Schott and as another reviewer notes results in what performs like an APO at excellent value for low price. Plan on immediately and easily changing out the crude focuser with somethin...

William Optics GT102 102mm f/6.9 Apo Refractor - 20th Anniversary Edit
Very nice scope, looks fantastic and works perfectly. The scope was delivered in a box with the case and scope inside. The case is a nice, well made, padded soft side case. I did have an issue with the focuser, as several screws were very loose and...

Good buy
I like it. As with everything man-made it can be improved upon nothing is perfect. Too bad Meade doesn't market this telescope anymore I would buy another. It does what it is designed too do. Weak points aer focuser, terrible 2" diagonal.

Who could ask for more?
Ordered the CR6 on an AVX mount from Agena Astro, got it within a week, assembled it, took it outside to test run it, Orion nebulae was beautiful, M35 was beautiful, Pleiades, same, etc. Great scope on a great mount for a great price. Highly recommen...

Great telescope, great product!
I'm an amateur and Agena recommended this product. They were spot on. I know others who had it too. I'm having a great time with it and everything was perfect when I received it. Will definitely buy again from here.

Great scope
I've had mine for a couple of years.... Major caveat. Although you can see a very few major deep sky objects... most dimly see, this scope is only good for nature.... double stars, the moon and bright planets. Optically, mine is very good and I ...

Fun, easy to use, quality telescope
Great to use. The greater focal length, compared to shorter 6 inch newtonian tubes, really helps. The mount is very solid and smooth with an easy to use tightening mechanism. I also got the Dob Pod and Dob Dolly from Orion to raise the mount up, and ...

Lighter than a triplet with excellent color
I own a 127mm triplet apo and wanted a lighter scope for travel and star parties. So, I purchased the 120mm skywatcher. I now use it more that my triplet. The first night I used it It showed minimum color on the waxing 3/4 moon. Focus is critical but...

A Versatile, Lifetime Telescope
While I'm new to amateur astronomy, I've been serious about photography for 30+ years. I know the value of quality optics, and wanted to avoid buying a telescope that would leave me wanting for the "next level." I also wanted a sc...

They can't be beat!
I placed my order for this scope around 1:30 pm CST on a Friday, it was delivered to me in Texas the following MONDAY! Of course this is a fine OTA, same kind of views as a long tube refractor. Best for Lunar and planetary viewing. If you get one, ge...

5 stars due to quality of scope for the price. Also, the 2 Meade eyepieces included are not too bad.
