Stephen is a pleasure to deal with and gives great advice. Not like some who push for sales. He'll advise whats best for your needs and has a great stock of equipment in store. I'll definitely be buying from him again. Thanks Stephen. - Adrian


I bought a telescope for myself and children. I asked for advice and received excellent and patient responses. Additionally the telescope was delivered the next day, quicker than expected.
I'd definitely recommend Ktec. - WL

Stephen does a great job helping people with their Astro gear and is a proper Astronomy fan. It’s more than a shop. He goes to the star parties, gives prizes to the attendees too. A true gentleman - Tom O Donoghue, astrophotographer
