Summary: READ THE WARRANTY!!!!!
January 18th, 2009
This is the second 130SLT that I have had. The first one failed right out of the box and would not power up. This one will not track. I have given this scope a zero rating but I will give the company a negative 10 for customer service.
READ THE WARRANTY!!!!!
This can not be stressed enough. The Celestron warranty is designed to keep the end user from returning a defective scope for refund. My mistake was in expecting a company like Celestron to be honest and honorable.
My scope is suitable for gathering dust as I will no longer have any dealings outside of a courtroom with Celestron. I strongly suggest that if you purchase any Celestron scope, you return it for refund instead of sending it back for warranty repair.
Celestron's warranty is not worth a damn.
