The Kidner's are fantastic people to deal with - super friendly and knowledgable. I have purchased there before and will again. I just wish their "store" was a little less like my closet at home! Lots of stock - but it's all over the place. Perhaps that's changed? Haven't visited them in a while. Still, highly recommended!

Joe is a fantastic guy to deal with - honest to the end!!! Great prices and fantastic service. The only way he could make this better is if he dedicated himself to the astro biz 100% of the time and opened an actual store. I've bought a scope and accessories from him, and he's 100% on the mark. I would highly recommend him.

I haven't purchased there yet, but I've corresponded with them about a variety of things. Staff are friendly and knowledgable - prices are just about the best in town. I've had several friends buy from them, and they've had great experiences. Sounds like a promising future! I will make my next astro purchase from them.

These guys are certainly the "super store". They have friendly, helpful staff and a great selection. Prices are a bit high, but I'm sure they have a lot of overhead compared to other stores. I have found them a bit inflexible at times (won't take trade-ins, won't bust apart an OTA from the mount, etc), but I'm sure they've become this way from experience. Overall, it's a great place to shop!

Wow - one cannot help but recognize the overwhelming negative feedback here. However, I've done business with Ray many times over the last 10 years, and I've never felt "ripped off" by him. He is a shrewd negotiator, and you'd better know your stuff if you're going to wheel and deal with him. But, as far as buying stuff off the shelves or even ordering product, I've never had a problem/issue with him. I find his prices to be very competitive, and his before sales service to be excellent. His after sales service (with me) has also been very good - any items that I've purchased that weren't satisfactory have been exchanged with no hassles. Overall, I think it's a great place to get a good deal. I would say that the old addage applies to _ANY_ store: Let the buyer beware. I've had situations at Efston where I wish I had been shrewder - but that's how you learn in life. I think both stores are good places to shop.
