"Our rental of a 10" SC telescope for our Board Meeting went extremely well! It was great to have a telescope with all the needed accessories in perfect working order available - on time, at a great price, and conveniently delivered and returned. We're sure to use Pyxis Venture's services in the future, whether for our classes, star parties, or special events."

"This is to tell you how pleased I was to rent a 16-inch, f/4.5 Night Sky dob from you for the five nights at the Shingletown Star Party, July 5-11, 2005. The telescope worked flawlessly, including the Sky Commander digital setting circles you had installed. Everything you promised to deliver was done just as promised. I would recommend your rental firm to anyone considering renting a scope. In fact, I would like you to reserve the same scope for me for Shingletown Star Party 2006. You are yourself an observer and know what an observer needs in the way of telescopes and accessories and you provided eyepieces, collimation, initialized Sky Commander, etc. as promised and as a result I had a great experience."

"The scope [10" Lite Bucket] worked very well.  It is super-lightweight, as advertised, rigid enough to hold collimation, and with the vibration-suppression pads, very stable and almost completely vibration-free. It is a bit intricate, but after the initial learning curve (not too steep) it was easy to use.
Thank you for providing this nice equipment."
