I just want to clarify - I was NOT sent the latest upgraded scope from Woodland Hills. I thought it was too good to be true! But in the end, it did not matter - the scope works great even w/o the magnetic declination feature. Celstron is taking names now and will mail the upgrade RGA #'s in about one month so you can mail back the hand controller for the upgrade.

I love the quality of the scope - the accuracy is fantastic. After star hopping for 25 years, I think GPS is the only way to go. I saw more in one night than in years of viewing since in the past, I was spending all my time looking for the objects. Now, they are automatically centered in my Nagler 13 mm everytime!

And for those out there who are on the fence about buying a Celstron due to the current fanancial issues, I think they will survive as they have over the past 30+ years. I had no hesitation about buying from them.
