Celestron 31057 Omni 150 XLT Reflector Telescope

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the beginner, 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivered yesterday (Friday), I had the tube mounted, balanced and collimated by tea time today, bearing in mind that this is Saturday and family shopping trips still had to be done. The instructions were straight-forward and easily applied, meaning that by the time Jupiter was up above the roof tops I was ready and waiting. Having ordered a Barlow and a wider angle lens than the 25mm supplied I had an outstanding view of the Gas Giant, and the Jovian moons. I believe it has even impressed the wife, so much so that she's finally cooled down about the expense. The delivery was a few days late, but that was our fault for not checking our email the morning it was due to be delivered the first time around. Lesson learned, the second attempt was successful, both boxes banded together into one package. This is a first rate product for beginners and quality is near perfect. I'm already working out how to get T rings and adapters, and an EOS body past the missus.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRIGHT, 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had one of these for 25 years, and it never
missed a beat. Until recently when two of the
six batteries corroded to the point where I
could not get them out, my fault. I then
immediately replaced the torch, as it has been
invaluable for over a quarter of a century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hardcovers rule., 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Unfinished Tales: (Hardcover)
Have had this, along with most of the rest of
the Tolkien books, for ages in paperback. I
recently decided to replace them with Hard-
cover copies. This also meant I could pass
the paperbacks on to someone else to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cyclops and Sirens., 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Odyssey (Hardcover)
As with The Iliad, most adults in the western world
know this one, albeit in broken pieces as individual
tales. Read it, trust me, you'll end up immersed in a
world of classical literature. There are enough books
out there in this genre to keep you going for the rest
of your now more interesting, and interested, lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trojans vs. Greeks, 5 May 2013

Read this as a penguin paperback, the original epic tale
of love, war and revenge. Everyone in the western world
knows of this but relatively few have actually bothered to
read it. I recommend you do.

War And Peace : 3 Volume Set. : Heron Books :

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Books, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just received these books and am astounded with the condition of them.
There is not a single mark on them, and they look like they have just come from
the printers. Binding is "as new" tight, and the smell! They smell of the libraries
I remember from my childhood.
I can heartily recommend this seller.
Cock-a-hoop would be an apt description of my mood.

I am pleased to put it mildly, big smile.

Quick, efficient service, as usual.

Neil Oliver is brilliant, as always, keeping you engaged throughout with his infectious and almost child-like enthusiasm for the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonders of the Solar System, Brian Cox, 20 Oct. 2010
I saw this when it was first broadcast on the BBC, and was knocked out. All the ney and doomsayers who are constantly banging on about how our license fees are spent
should be clamped shut after watching this. Brian Cox is the reason why this series is as outstanding as it is. His enthusiasm is contagious, and he makes me want to sign
up for an Open University course. The content is informative enough to attract my attention anyway, but Dr Cox brings it all together in such a way as to grip you and make
you flick straight to the next episode whether you have the time or not. Utterly brilliant, hence why I bought it for the DVD rack.
