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!

The best planetary eyepiece
I had already bought all Baader Morpheus, but I was surprised at the views provided by this eyepiece.
I will certainly buy other orthocopics.

CAP for Mes de LS8
I could not find a front CAP for my Meade LS8 so I tried the Celestron one. It fits perfectly.
When tube is stored It barely fits against the fork base and hand control has tomado be stored un another place.

Ideal solution
Although I already possessed an Explore Scientific 2", 2X focal extender, I needed a way to avoid having to buy expensive 2" color filters when I already had a assortment of 1-1/4" filters for planetary imaging. I hoped that this piece...

Just perfect
This extension tube was needed to allow my Explore Scientific 1-1/4", 2X focal extender to reach focus with my DSLR. I like the generous-sized locking knob.

Great Service
The eyepiece is just what I expected, good quality, good crosshairs. It arrived on time and once again, Agena proves itself an excellent source of just not an extensive range of astronomy products, but a reliable source of knowledge on how to use the...

Nice simple red dot finder
This was a perfect replacement for a stock finderscope on an 8" Orion dob used for scout outreach. Fit perfectly in the existing orion/synta shoe. Simple, lightweight, and easy for the scouts to use.

Well made unit
Super clear compared to stock Celestron 1.25 in. diagonal. Superb construction quality. A little tricky to mount the first time because the mating ring fully threaded onto telescope rear cell does not cinch the unit up tight to the scope. You need to...
