    Optics Plagued with Dust/Dirt


    I purchased the Celestron 102SLT expecting quality (particularly given the stellar reviews online). I received my telescope promptly from Best Buy. But upon opening up the package in a dimly lit room, I noticed the objective lens appeared to be covered in dust and dirt. Not to be swayed, I hosed the area down with some compressed air, but the debris didn’t budge. I ran a lens cloth through and… yep, all of it was INSIDE. I called a very helpful Best Buy customer service and was quickly mailed a replacement. Unfortunately, the replacement had even larger debris and even looked partially used, given all the scrapes on the tube. I informed both Best Buy and Celestron on the issue concerning this particular refractor. After three weeks of getting the runaround with Celestron, their solution, “All our astronomical scopes have a two-year warranty. This would cover foreign particles inside optical components like refractor objectives.” Expect to buy brand new Celestron products and immediately ship it back for a proper cleaning. Note: Do not clean the telescope yourself, as this action will void the warranty.

    Very impressed for a 4 inch refractor. Image quality excellent. Tracks very well. Jupiter, Saturn and Mars look great. And lots of detail on the Moon.
