    I bought this telescope for my friend as a Christmas present. Having consulted with my brother, a long-time night-gazer enthusiast and researched options on the internet I decided on the Saxon Velocity 2001EQ5. It is large enough to give a really nice, clear image and all the parameters are really excellent for the price. Ozscopes website was very good and when i phoned to double check that later motor and computer can be added, they were most helpful. The delivery was also extremely fast.
    The summer is not the best time for clear night skies but my friend had some magnificent experiences already and is very pleased with the machine.

    I had several choices in mind for my first ‘proper’ telescope that would deliver a good image and last. In the end I opted for the (more expensive) larger aperture reflector - and I am so glad that I did!

    Ozscopes were excellent. Delivery was fast and they were very helpful. The telescope is heavy, so be warned, and you will need to be acquainted with EQ mounts and general set up as it didn’t come with any paperwork, but if need be Google and Youtube can help with this. I am also struggling to focus my Nikon D3100 DSLR with the T ring and T adapter purchased separately and so have bought a Barlow lens which is now yielding good results.

    The first few nights use opened up a whole new world of stargazing to me. Viewing the Moon through the large aperture with the 25mm and 10mm eyepieces reveals incredible detail and is something I will never tire of. Star hopping continually reveals new clusters and formations and all this in a moderately light-polluted area.

    This telescope provides exceptional images for the price and is a great investment that’ll return many years’ worth of stargazing enjoyment without requiring you to purchase anything bigger. If you are looking at an amateur level, intermediate ‘scope, it’s worth paying that bit extra to get quality images and many years of use. Highly recommended.
