Quote:its not uncommon for this haze inside celestron scopes. I've had two SCT's with the same issue. All you can do is pull the corrector and clean it. Celestron has never issued a statement defining the cause, but I guess it's some type of outgassing from paint or grease.
I ache, therefore I am

Quote:Only in the astro marketplace are high priced, delicate products produced that need pulling apart and cleaning because of poor part placement in the first place.You would have thought that SCT manufacturers would have sourced internal components be they paint, grease or plastic that does not outgas and ruin the whole point that the product was designed for.You have to laugh...pathetic really.
Quote:You really feel that the price vindicates internal parts screwing up the corrector and/or mirror?
You are easily pleased mate
Me am not....it's rubbish quality...after all these years of making SCT's they should have eliminated this ridiculous problm years ago.
Officina Stellare do not have correctors that have to be removed to remove outgassed haze *BLEEP*.
