I initially bought this for myself but then I thought it would be really cool present for my nephew whose birthday is next month. I did take it out and have a look and it is absolutely crystal clear looking through the viewfinder. I couldn't be happier and I'm sure he's going to love it.
Nice to see there are still some scrupulous retailers out there not gouging everyone. Love my telescope and will definitely look your way when I need accessories.
Excellent customer service!
Need instructions how to operate
The shipping was lightening fast. It took a bit of a web search to find straps for the 8" dob, but Telescope Tek had just what I was looking for.
I ordered a Losmandy dove tail for my Vixen VMC260l. Morgan got it in the queue and kept me informed on the status at all times. I also got a discount on the price so it was a great decision to order from TelescopeTek. I'm a very happy customer.
I recently used this filter on a star party so I can capture multiple DSOs. Linked is IC1805 taken in just 2 hours (120 frames x 60x).

I'm very satisfied with the performance of the filter and wouldn't be able to image at F/2 with regular filters because of the shift problem caused by fast optics at F/2.5 or faster.
Did not have a chance to use it yet. Next month)
With minor modification to the interior foam, the scope is a perfect fit.
The Explore FirstLight was delviered quickly and in perfect condition - packed very well. It is excellent quality and does what it says. Unfortunately it won't work for our purposes ....we need a reflector telescope....but if a mid-tier refractor is what you are looking for, this one seems great.
First light for this was on NGC 6960 the Western Veil Nebula. I got great data from just 40 x 60 sec subs. F/1.9 8" SCT w/ v4 Hyperstar
I bought a telescope from telescopetek.com. Excellent Customer Service. Quick delivery & Easy to assemble. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase.
A useful addition to my optical toolbox. Great scope.
I am in love with this product! I. have owned top quality optics for years and this beat my expectations by far. Bought for my son, since I, myself use lieca. Just as good as my overly expensive optics.
