C30 status

C30 is going to be out of production for some unknown time.  The original C30 telescope had stopped responding via the serial port requiring servicing.  It's not easy to find service for older scopes.  It's taken months.   As a stop gap, Phillip Coker loaned another complete scope, a 12" RCX 400.  It has been in production most of this year.  It will now be returned to Phillip as he has plans to put it to use.

 

In the mean time, the original C30 board has been repaired, I am awaiting its return.  Along the way, the focuser has has become erradic and will be shipped for servicing.  I anticipate a few weeks for these items to be available and C30 to be recommissioned.
