5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth buying, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having recently purchased a 1200mm 6" refractor soon realised how limiting manual tracking is and how difficult it is to reach the controls. The Bresser Duo has made it so much easier and enjoyable to use the telescope and is well worth buying. The drives seem very well made, fit easily/precisely and run effortlessly and smoothly although I do take great care to balance the telescope as it's at the upper weight limit for the exos 2 mount.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely good value, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considering the low price these eyepieces work very well. I bought them to try in an old refractor that had been bought at a car boot and was amazed how good they were. Only drawback which I should have realised and completely my own fault having plastic lens mounts not too good for projecting image of Sun. The smell of burning plastic and smoke noticed before too much damage done but the eyepiece still works fine.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy piece of kit but appeared slightly damaged., 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prompt service arriving next day as promised. this is a sturdy piece of kit and would easily achieve 5 stars had I been able to attach the Celestron camera ring that I recently purchased. Although the ring fits perfectly onto the threads of my Bresser telescope eyepiece holder, it would not screw onto the variable adaptor.The first part of the thread of the adaptor looked worn and the black coating had been rubbed off. Inside the Bresser packaging were two cardboard mounts which looked homemade and had markings from an air freshener carton. I'd be surprised if Bresser used recycled cardboard so I'm suspicious that this item had been previously sold and returned. I purchased a Bresser camera ring and this did fit so have not gone through the hassle of sending the adaptor back.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid mount, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this mount for an AR152 L Bresser telescope and the combination works well although I had to buy an additional counterbalance weight as the telescope was too heavy despite being within the max specified weight limit. Would have given 5 stars had there been a decent manual with it. There was instruction for putting the mount together but nothing for setting up the polar scope for NCP alignment. Have spent many hours since searching the web to find this information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great telescope at reasonable price, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with telescope and appears very well made. Although clearly stated in description I had underestimated quite how big/heavy the telescope is and had to buy a new mount for it.
