Nice compact Setup

This is a nice and easy-to-use short focus Newtonian with a very good mounting. A basic knowledge of astronomy is needed to properly use this telescope, as the telescope needs to be colimated to get best results. The mounting needs to be properly oriented to the sky as well.

Great device and excellent service.

This is my first experience with Hyperion. I had quick shipping and good service. The eagle is an excellent device for controlling my telescope and camera. It is a powerful pc.

Really does the job...

For those who have the Eagle, the ECCO is a great device to monitor and adjust the dew heater. It is very easy to install. You do a short calibration in the advanced settings, be sure the sensor is properly placed, plug in the cables and bingo--all done. Highly recommend it.

Great Software

Amazing program, so much you are able to do with it. Very costomizable. Great software support as well, quick replies and helpful. As an amateur astrophotographer it’s pretty easy to learn and the program can grow with you as you dive into the more advanced features.

Successful imaging

I am still learning all the capabilities of Prism, and so far very pleased. I have had several nights so far, after easy setup, of sound sleep waking up to multiple quality subs. I have tried many automation software packages and very happy with Prism.
I asked about some simple issues on initial setup, and customer support was very fast and super friendly.
Give Prism a try.
