Friday the 13th arrived late ...

#1

Post by messier 111 »

today was the day to go get my new mount eq6-r.
well I thought so.
I brought my 120ed to see how the whole thing would behave.
at the beginning everything is fine, then after 15 minutes a funny noise, he who was so silent ...

suddenly a little electrical noise, like a motherboard burning, and voila.
it is burnt.
nothing else if not return it all.
I don't know if I'm going to order another one again.
here is my Monday which looks like Friday the 13th.

it was very pretty, but good...

this happened to the store.
so yes the guarantee.
but it does not really give confidence in this product, say.
I can be reimbursed without problem, I will see what I will do with it.
