Ref: Saxon 1149Eq:

Hi there, I will be doing more business with you in the near future. I Have never experienced such good service, I am extremely impressed, thanks again.

Ref: Saxon 909Eq2:

Dear Cris,

I would just like to let you know that the telescope arrived safely and before Xmas and to say many thanks for despatching so quickly.

My husband loves the telescope and is having a great time with it. We live on a 5 acre property and on clear days we have the most wonderful night time view of the sky and he is like a little kid again re learning all the stars and planets.

Again many thanks and we have recommended you to a lot of our friends (with little kids and big kids) as the quality of the telescope far exceeds anything that can be purchased at retail outlets.

Kind regards

--Pauline R.


Ref: Officina Stellare Pro RC360:

Hi Gino and Cris,

Now that I'm finally imaging again I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how happy I am with my new scope!! The image I just finished of NGC 253 exceeded my expectations! The detail I achieved is extraordinary and I know that the local Astro community is as impressed as I am with the (now demonstrated) quality of the RC360! She's not just a pretty face - she has the substance to back up the good looks!!! :-)

So thank you for a fine telescope! I'm looking forward to producing many more images for a long time to come!

Kind Regards,

Marcus Davies, Bells Observatory, Sydney, Australia.

You have no idea how much of a help you are! I really appreciate all of your help, this is why I keep coming back to you because you have been just amazing. I will be coming to you for my next scope because I always do, you have been MORE than accommodating for me and you are just great to deal with in general. Thank you so much again for your help, I really appreciate it. You have been fantastic

Hi Cris,

We had a small Star Party Saturday Night and the VC200L performed as well as you suggested. I'm very pleased with the Scope and the eyepieces caused much positive comment. You might be getting some orders from Tassy ! Glad I took your advice re: 35mm eyepiece -- the 'Jewel Box' was just stunning, and while I was just browsing around I came across a Globular Cluster near by -- previously undiscovered I'm sure !!!!

-- Cheers, Brett, H, North Tasmania


Hi Cris,

Hello Cris, I'm the fat bloke with the beard who bought the Saxon 909 off you earlier in the week, how are you? I would just like to say thank you for being so helpful and not BSing me around. It's a great telescope and better than I expected, I can't wait until there is more than 10mins of clear sky

I am very happy with my purchase

-- Lloyd G, Mill Park, Vic


Excellent, informed support in supplying the rare spare I was looking for
Great service and prompt reply 
Many thanks Cris

-- Mark J, Tasmania


I live over 550km from Melbourne (Mildura) and had to do business over the phone and internet
I was a bit worried of doing business long distance, but I found Cris to be very helpful and interested in discussing and understanding my requirements and recommended me a telescope that best suits my needs
I am new to astronomy and he also took the time and effort to explain technical topics to me in simple terms
I got the goods delivered on-time and then he gave me some further telephone support in putting it together and making it work
He gave me great honest advice and service and I will go back to Cris for more business
Good honest advice and follow up service can save you lots of time, headaches and money
Thanks Cris

-- Steven F, Mildura, Vic
