Quote:Here is the status of Trapezium Telescopes. Trapezium is now out of business in New Hampshire. Steve Forbes has moved to Florida (down the road from me) and has applied for a FL certificate of incorporation for Trapezium. Until he gets that he can't do business in the state. Who knows when that will be. I have loaned Steve Forbes enough money to clear all back orders and start operations in Florida with a clean slate. Steve had 5 back ordered Mini Towers that need to be converted into Turbos. I finished purchasing the last three yesterday. The first two Mini Tower Turbo conversions will occur this weekend, including the one ordered by Fred2010. The other three will be done by the end of next week then shipped.One customer,in New Zealand ordered a Mak 152 from Trapezium last November and has been making posts on the Yahoo MT group justifiably complaining about no communication from Trapezium and no delivery. I purchased his Maksutov from iOptron and shipped it to him yesterday. A number of folks wanted refunds for scopes, mounts knobs etc. I personally took care of them all last week. All have their money back in their wallets.So here is where we are folks. I expect all Trapezium back orders will be in the hands of very patient customers within 2 weeks. All except Fred2010. Steve and I have got to figure out a way to get his MT Turbo, which will be done this weekend, over the volcano in iceland.Clear skies to all,Bob GaskinMiramar Beach, FLwww.gaskin-astro.org

Quote:over 4 months and my mount finally arrived, of course without the tripod. I will see if it comes monday or tuesday. It will then go on amart as I have since bought another mount because I was not sure if it would ever come.
Quote:I paid for a mount upgrade in January. My mount was returned to me supposedly done. It never was, Steve has recently admitted he might not have upgraded my mount and offered a refund but like has has the past 6 months, he makes a promise and disappears. I'm suing.

Quote:First, Steve is out of state so getting your summons and complaint served will be difficult and secondly, the server has to find him or his business agent to complete service.
