The guide scope was exactly as expected: good quality finish and worked right away. Shipping was fast. Still learning to work with the OAT, but the concept is awesome!
So far, I've not had time to do more than look at the parts in the box much less assemble the kit. I'm quite impressed with the quality I see so far, having all the threaded inserts already in place and other details. The kit was very nicely packed and appears to have no damage from being shipped. Very much looking forward to being able to assemble and use the OpenAstroTracker.
Got it up and running pretty quickly and it was definetly worth it! Via guiding Astrophotgraphy is now way more forgiving regarding manual polar alignment but also just better generally quality wise, allowing me to have longer exposure times.
Everything was there in order to build my AstroTracker. I was able to get 5+minute exposures with guiding at 250mm focal length. Looks amazing as well. Thank You!
Perfect, can reconstruct my tracker, old RA ring was deformed.
Nice and tidy kit for this very capable project! Fast shipping, very well packaged- highly recommended! Thanks Fabian!!!
I have few other guide scopes, but the main advantage of the OAG besides of the price is that it is very lightweight. The focusing is extremely fine and smooth. By turning the lens by few mm, there is very litte change in the focus, so it can be focused very sharply.
I only ordered the lens and it arrived in a reasonable amount of bubble wrap and protection. The Austrian Haribos were a welcomed surprise ;)
Fantastic service as always. Items arrived quickly and we’re exactly as described.
Good quality for a fair price ~ highly recommended
Lens and Chip for guider
Parts were perfect.
Again, I will give my opinion on the OpenAstroTracker design and how it is implemented. It 's a great design and a lot of expertise is gone in to it. It uses state of the art technology, the electronics, the printed parts and of course digital cameras. Ten years ago, this was something you could only dream of! It has also the potential of a great educational program, but here it could be better organised. Some explanations, e.g. the Calibration and uploading of the firmware are confusing and not clear at all for beginners. And I am still looking for the printing files of the polar alignment pieces....where is the reference?
For me, as for most of us it is a hobby. It started in 1957 and since then I followed the course of the planets in the sky from Europe and the several tropical countries I used to live and work. Occasionally I employed a small telescope, but the lack of a drive and GoTo limited extensive use.
But now it comes all together: the OpenAstroTracker, my scientific digital photography and the fact that I have now an accessible flat rooftop on my house. I think the OpenAstroTracker came just in time for me!
Order fulfillment was excellent. Very timely and Fabian assisted me with any questions. Parts are very high quality and clean. I don't think I could have gotten this quality and that price with local services. Got some bonus parts I was not expecting! Good value. Worth the wait and shipping cost.
