Quote:Kudos to lunt with great customer service.long story short I ordered a lunt ed80 after viewing thru it I noticed that stars brighter than fourth or fifth magnatuide was spiking and flaring like crazy,called lunt,told them the problem, they told me to send it to them ,they would either fix it or replace the lens well they told me that the lens had a issue so they would send me a new scope, it arrived today.I made a quick star test and this scope is performing a lot better stars come to complete points brighter ones just have tiny crosses in focus ,it also has better color correction .Thank you,Lunt you saved the day.
