Celestron should align theese at the factory.
Hi, Aligning the etched reticle in this is a lot less than fun. It could have been done at the factory, but NOOO, you have to fiddle with 3 tiny screws for hours trying to get the x centered. Mine arrived with one of the screws inside the finder. I a...

It works...
Lots of holes to choose from.

I think I could have made a mounting plate out of wood, but this works fine.

I got this to use a 2” barreled 18mm Explore Scientific 82 afov eyepiece with my Vixen 130 Newtonian which only has a 1.25” eyepiece barrel. It works great!

Excellent value!
I compared the GSO 2.5x apo barlow to a TeleVue 2x I had. First, this barlow functions as a 2.1x barlow, not a 2.5x. In any event, on Almach, the beautiful pair was easily separated in my 17mm Sterling Plossl and looked simply beautiful, orange prima...

Simple and effective
All SCTs should have these... they make colimation much easier without needing to be on the front of the scope. You see the changes immediately as you turn the knob.

Gets the job done
Its ok but could be improved. I placed it on my sct when there was a bit of dew. A fine black dust came off the mask and made a mess of the corrector plate. Also, once on its difficult to grab and lift it off.

Outstanding Mirror Holder
I decided to buy this item instead of building one and could not be happier. It is a quality product and I plan to buy other telescope accessories from this company. Good job guys!

Nice GSO Diagonal

Eye piece containers
These are great containers. I especially like the foam padding in both ends which provides that extra layer of cushion for your eyepiece. The only reason for the 4 rating is that one of the containers I received was very hard to open and close at fir...

Works fine for me.
It gets rid of most of the blue/purple color in my 102mm f/5 refractor. Has just a slight yellow color in use.

Nice focuser but be very careful with rotating feature.
Hi, I love this focuser. Very nice. I have to say it's everything I want in a focuser. BUT, you have to make sure that the rotating feature has it's set screw set properly, and that it and the thumb screw have a solid hold on the back end o...
