Quote:I may cancel if I don't receive a "Your Order Has Shipped" email soon. The more an order is delayed, the longer I have to reconsider the purchase, and the higher the probability that I'll cancel it. I already have a 5" f/5 Newt with a 2" focuser. But the 6" f/5 will give me greater light grasp, a not much smaller TFOV and a Crayford focuser. The focuser looks low, so it should give me more flexibility in the eyepieces and accessories that will be able to come to focus. I will probably sell the 5" f/5 when/if I receive the 6".Mike
Quote:Well, Woodland Hills told me through Live Chat that they are still awaiting arrival of more Omni XLT 150 and will let me know when they ship. Which is pretty much what I thought. Mike

Quote:I sent an email and got a response. They're still waiting for the shipment of XLT 150's to come in. I guess I'll hang in there...Mike
Quote:Is this scope being sold as an OTA only or only as the package with the CG-4 mount?
Quote:$270 now! very bad experience with them, resell customer returning as new with defect. refused exchange. I need to pay $170 shipping then get $190 refund, so ridiculous!Customer service told me $190 for omni 150 OTA is still good deal even with problems, even no warranty!Finally, got replacement from celestron for free.
Quote:the price changed this morning or last night, http://www.ebay.com/itm/Celestron-6-Omni-Reflecting-Telescope-Short-Compact-2...these from other dealer, I called them, looks like no factory warranty, just "store warranty", i guess $190 OTA should be customer no reason returning. but "like new" condition. if $190 with "free shipping", that should be with defect. they just want to clear out. Celestron maybe stop provide OTA to WH. That is why "Call for Availability".If price around $300 I prefer to choose Orion 8" OTA.http://www.telescope.com/Orion-203mm-f49-Reflector-Tube-with-Crayford-Style-F...All from synta,same acuracy.
Quote:Good news! I received an email yesterday saying my XLT 150 has shipped. Mike
Quote:In the meantime I can mount it on my AT Voyager alt-az. The OTA is pretty long, longer than I had expected for an f/5. ...
