Mr. Timothy Cowell
Jun 15, 2015
After much eBay watching and surfing and price checking I settled on this scope, then I found 365Astronomy and my mind was made up. I called at 9pm on a Sunday and spoke to the owner! Great advice and scope and accessories collected next day, amazing service! The scope is so easy to use (no polar align, no balance weights etc.) and the optics are super sharp. Plus it comes with 2 eyepieces! and I have a bunch of rechargeable batteries, so it has been push button enjoyment from day 1. As for 365Astronomy, I think I have found my shop and will be coming back for more! For me they are 100% with service and I shall not be going anywhere else. I love my Nexstar 127!
