Satisfied customer

I was looking for a good starter telescope that would have pro features but wouldn't break my small bank. After countless hours of looking at reviews, specs., and brands, I came across the 114mm reflector by Explore Scientific. Best move I made was this purchase. The outer box was destroyed by the shipping carrier and was surprised to find the Explore Scientific box was intact along with all that was in side. That's quality. I didn't need the instructions to put it together fast. The scope is not only a beautiful piece to look at but the clarity and detail of the images blew me away and with only my phone and a cheap $60. astro camera got some awesome pics and videos of the Moon, Sun, and Jupiter. The customer service response with any questions is second to none. Scott has been awesome and attentive in everyday conversation as well as being helpful. I would recommend this product and company to anyone who is looking to get the best bang for your buck.

Yay! It's here!

I really like the style and simplicity of this model. However, the only issue I had is the fact that there were no extras that were supposed to be with it such as the planisphere, the flashlight the calendar and the rest of the extras that were advertised. This is why I bought the whole set so I would have the nifty extras! I would like the extras as soon as possible. Other than that, I'm super excited to try it out tonight.
