  • Great site and scopes. The 20" had a few issues but we worked around them. Astrophotography focusing was an issue as no extension tubes to get camera in focal range.

The presentation was informative while also being good entertainment, good for kids also, and Ahmad was a very knowledgeable guide. Hard to describe the experience of seeing Jupiter and Saturn clearly through a telescope for the first time. We actually went twice, and enjoyed it both times.
