Celestron graciously replaced my original telescope with another new one and it has the exact same squeal. It is not the same telescope that I returned because I had etched my initials on the bottom of the original. This 35-second video demonstrates the squeal, which the Celestron agent viewed and determined it was OK. I really like this telescope otherwise, and maybe I expect too much. Has anyone else noticed the squeal? Do you accept Celestron's claim that this is normal?

I would think that this is normal. The clutch has friction material on it and that material is partially grabbing which is causing the squeak. That may go away it time as the clutch seats in but I don't see it was an issue unless my understanding above is incorrect.
