Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying. (Arthur C. Clarke)
Quote:I got a hand controller from Celestron yesterday, it does look refurbished, and the start up text is displayed with a different font, and thicker letters, but it works, it was sent UPS, it took just about a week with shipping to get a replacement. Now I am thinking about getting a Celestron SkyQ, just in case the hand controller dies again.
My gear: --Celestron 8EdgeHD & 11EdgeHD | 80mm F/6 Triplet | Modified Canon T1i | QSI683WSG-8 | Celestron AVX mount | iOptron CEM60 mount | iOptron ZEQ25 mount --- My skies:
Quote:I called Celestron early this morning, and told them about my hand controller, they said they would send me a new hand controller via UPS ground, but they wanted to test the new hand controller for a few days before they sent it to me, and that they wanted me to send the old hand controller back along with a purchase receipt.
Quote:You can change the font in the hand controller menu.Stan
Quote:The SkyQ is not going to work until they fix the firmware in the AVx. The SkyQ reads the mount as alt/az.
Quote: Well good luck to them. I am not sending something back unless it is pre-paid. Why should I have to pay for the privilege of sending back a warranty item? I'll keep it so I can replace the case after 5 years or so.
