Trapezium Telescope still around?
Posted 18 March 2010 - 05:39 PM
I know Stephen has moved to Florida a while ago but I ordered a Minitower mount from Trapezium about 6 months ago and I'm still waiting... No answers to emails and Stephen's voicemail is full. Is there any sign of life over there and any chance I get this mount sometimes? Thanks for any hint.

Steve would be pulling his hair out if it were long enough! This move has been the most nerve wracking mess of my life! Soon, Stephen will be joining me, with all of my shop equipment and "stuff". Once we get things set up again we will be busting our back sides to get caught up. If anyone thinks that doing all that I do is easy, then come on over and try it yourself! Also, this entire operation is not about money, it's about being passionate about astronomy and the Mini Tower and soon, the Mini Tower Pro!
All I can ask is that everyone hang on while I regroup and get my ducks in a row. Once things are again set up and operational then I/we will be going full throttle to keep pushing the envelope.
Thank to all and clear skies!
HEY! I can say that now and actually go outside and SEE a clear sky!

Try emailing him at Telescopes@usa.net. PM me with your email address and other contact info and I'll see if I can get in touch with him. Also, he is a member of the Mini Tower group on Yahoo...
Don't give up, he's trying to get reestablished, and wants to take care of everyone.

I'm now facing the awful truth: I won't get any goods from Trapezium and I'm afraid I've lost nearly 1500 bucks in this sad story. I'd be more than happy to stand corrected, here or anywhere else.

He's trying to get in touch with people like you... last night, he was fighting internet problems with AT&T. I can tell you from personal experience that can be frustrating. He's working to get in touch with people, his son is there and setting up the machine shop singlehandedly (Steve has a day job as a locksmith- working 6 days a week/overtime every day)... they expect to be up and running again soon.
Steve will NOT take your money and run.. that is NOT who he is. BTW, he is no longer on C/N...

I'd love to share your optimism, but nothing so far from Trapezium... Weird, isn't it?

I am definitely not happy with the situation. Had I known it would be so long, I would have not purchased the mount. The weather is starting to warm up, so I could really use the mount. He seems like a decent honest guy who ran into some personal problems. I would like to give him the benefit of the doubt and a chance to make good. I am hoping our mounts will be out by the end of the month.
Note that Alan posted that Steve is supposed to be at the iOptron booth at NEAF, so apparently a relationship still exists between them. Perhaps you should call iOptron to see if they can help. If Steve got your money and placed the order for the mount, maybe iOptron can ship it to you.

Things are getting back on track with Trapezium. If you have an outstanding order- and you've not been contacted or PM'd, please send me a PM with your details.

I e-mailed you to the address you gave me in the PM.
