Great Service, Products, Website and Support
Having been bitten badly by the Astrophotography bug, have repeatedly gone back to HighPoint to purchase both the big ticket and small items needed to be successful in my new hobby. The support, price matching, service, communication (for instance Thomas), has been great. There are challenges - with the ZWO ASI sale, further complicated by the tariff issues, there’s been some delays in getting my new Camera (ASI183M) but the trade-off with a lower price is worth the wait.
Not bragging about my gear, but over the last 3 years I’ve purchased a Celestron AVX, NexStar 8SE and 6SE (original scope), then added the HyperStar, ASI071MC, ASI120MM-S, then decided that I really needed a much better mount (EQ6-R Pro) to get the results and have the capabilities to capture the benefits of my William Optics 81MM refractor. HighPoint’s support and technical expertise kept me coming back for more (along with some aperture envy too).
Will I buy more gear - yep. Had I known that the RASA 11 was going on sale, I would have immediately changed my recent decision to purchase the 8SE and HyperStar - but there’s another year of tinkering in the works, and fully expect the RASA 11 to be on the bucket list.
