Hi Pete.

With change of ownership in progress the 'parts policy' discussion is essentially moot, at least until new management is in full control of operations.

Quite apart from criticising Meade specifically I was merely trying to get across the point that shipping an entire scope back to the manufacturer for minor repairs is wasteful of time and money for the customer and vendor both. It's like shipping your car to 'Detroit' for new spark plugs instead of 'Detroit' sending a box of spark plugs to you. The savings in fuel and manhours more than outweigh the occasional false claim of defective parts. Not to mention the profit margin that must exist on a $400 circuit board that costs $6 to ship.
