"All in all the decision to go with the Astrel AST8300A was a very good one, especially coming from DSLR imaging. I can highly recommend Astrel Instruments and their products."

"...The overall performance of the Astrel is astounding, especially as it is not based on the newest sensor generation, but this is more than made up for by the smart solutions that Astrel is using to reduce noise. The image quality I am receiving is absolutely great..."

"...I need to say that the support is outstanding. They are always available to help with questions, support you via Teamviewer if the issue is a little more complex and are easy to deal with whenever something needs to get fixed. I have never been happier with a product support team..."
