Saxon 909-AZ3 Refractor Telescope

Everything arrived safe and sound. It's hard to know what you will get when buying online. I was recommend this model as an upgrade to a smaller diameter Saxon telescope. Whilst a much bigger diameter, the effect for landscape viewing was not that dramatically improved. It's a lot bigger and bulky to have and move around the house. So I'd probably recommend testing if you can before you buy. Other than that, it works, but a little disappointed it's not better.

Hi Hayden Thanks for your review. I just want to check you have tried the telescope with both eye pieces i.e. the 25mm gives less magnification but greater field of view, the 10mm gives greater magnification, less field of view. Also with this telescope there is sufficiently more power available should you want more magnification ( up to 180x ) you just need to get either a 2x Barlow or a higher magnified eye piece to achieve this. Hope this helps. Terrie

Faulty finderscope

Hi there I have assembled the telescope according to the instructions. The main telescope is working fine but the finderscope is viewing upside down. I just cannot remedy this. Is there something simple I am doing wrong?

Hi Graham Great to hear you have the telescope up and running and no you are not doing anything wrong regarding the finderscope. The type of finderscope you have, presents its image upside down. This is because your finderscope is used mostly for astronomy ( you shouldn't need it for day time use) and in most instances this is how the night sky is viewed. Send me an email if you want to discuss further. Cheers.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
