Re: My new Coronado SM90 is faulty

Well my SM90 is on its way back to Meade to be repaired again, I'm over $700 in postage now since I purchased it nearly 1 year ago.

To say I'm pi$$ed would be an understatement.

Re: My new Coronado SM90 is faulty

Appreciate your thoughts guys, thanks, only good thing is we have our wet season approaching for the next few months so probably won't have much sun to view.

Re: My new Coronado SM90 is faulty

Meade has replied and will accept it back to fix for a second time so I'm waiting for what they call a RAN then Ken will send it back to be repaired again.
Meanwhile I'm well over $500 in postage, but It's my fault for not buying a Lunt.

My new Coronado SM90 is faulty

Just a couple of weeks short of a year since I purchased it I am now told that it is useless. Ken Harrison (Merlin66) who has been a tremendous help has it at present since it came back from Meade for repair under warranty and this is what he said.

My SM90 is back in Australia.

My SM90 has arrived back in Australia after being sent back to Meade for warranty, it is in customs at present and hopefully we can get it out without any costs.

It will then go back to Ken (Merlin66) in Melbourne to test it then he will send it back to me in Townsville.

Fingers crossed.

Re: My Quark won't work

I spoke to Sean at Daystar and he said to send it back and they will fix it and also the 1.25" barrel is super tight in my diagonal so they will fix that and check it for any banding issues, so it's going to the post office this arve.
