I love my Saxon 1026AZ3 Refractor.  This telescope is really nice for the price. Smooth and works well. The moon looks amazing with the supplied eyepieces. I also caught a very clear view of Saturn, rings and all. It was incredible!” – Starkid

Outstanding value for money – This is possibly the best value for money refractor around. I was looking for an easy to handle scope to complement my bulky Saxon dobsonian.  It comes with a good selection of budget eyepieces and a barlow. Although I prefer the eyepieces that came with the dob, I cannot ignore the outstanding value that the Saxon Pioneer 1026AZ3 SC offers.  Going to be using it to view the moon and the planets. I especially like that it is easily portable and very suitable for a “quick look”, whenever the Melbourne weather isn’t too cloudy.” – Frank
