Amazing customer service
Wednesday, 4 May 2022  | 

So happy with the service. Originally ordered from ***, never again. Their internal system refused my card and they cost me 50 euros transfer charge.
Flo no problems at all, camera arrived within couple of day even matched the price.
Happy customer, will use again.

Excellent camera and supplier

I have just made the move from a DSLR camera to a dedicated astrophotography camera. The results of my first four days imaging are very good so much better than the DSLR. The service was great with communication about the order from placement to shipping.

New wide field colour camera
Thursday, 12 April 2018  | 

Due to the clouds included with the new camera, Iíve only had a few hours to test under the stars, but first impressions are very favourable - I unscrewed my 183MC, screwed on the 071, opened Nebulosity4, and found an almost perfectly focused image! The field of view is around 2.4x1.6 degrees, and seemed paetty flat, but the clouds rolled in before I could capture enough data to confirm this. Quite easy to avoid saturation using this camera, which was one of my targets.
Overall, very pleased, so far.
Minor niggle, in that Win10 doesnít seem to get on with the cameraís USB hub, but once it stops trying, everything else settles down & works fine.
