What our customers are saying...

“I finally had a really good night last night, the air was clear and stable, and the OGS RC10 is a treasure.  I must have spent over an hour looking at M5 alone; I went over 300X with my Nagler 7mm and it looked just like a galactic cluster.  Stunning! This really is a remarkable scope. The lightweight magnesium design was important. I LOVE this telescope!” (Ed Mihelich - Amateur Astronomer)

"On a cost versus value comparison, OGS is dynamite. The optical and mechanical performance of our RC20 telescope has exceeded our expectations. OGS installation and support has been excellent as well." (Mr. Jay Sarton - Director of Roberson Museum and Science Center)

"We have a good relationship with Optical Guidance Systems and appreciate the support we have received. Our automated 20" Ritchey-Chretien telescope performs better than we had hoped! When funds become available, our plan is to trade in the observatory's OGS RC20 telescope for a new OGS RC32 with the OGS190 obstruction-free German Mounting." (Dr. Phillip Lu, Former CSU Professor - Chairman, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Western Connecticut State University)
