for this Site
In recent years, astronomy review sites such as
Astromart, Cloudy Nights, Excelsis, and a few others have done a fantastic job
in letting us read and write reviews of astronomical telescopes and accessories.
However, if you are searching for reviews on a specific product, most of these
sites do not lend themselves to easy searches. If a review of a telescope you
don't particularly care about contains a great paragraph of a mount that you are

And to entice you to write reviews, we will offer frequent
prize drawings for submitted content as well as offer discounts good towards
astronomy goodies for every single review you write!

discussions or reviews we've missed, we'd love to have you tell us about them so
