      5.0 FLT 132 / Nice Scope


      Willaim of WO has repaired and replaced the faulty focuser.


      Poor quality focuser, Poor quality control and inspection


      I have had a WO FLT 110 for years and decided to upgrade to the new FLT 132.

      It arrived triple boxed and in good shape. It comes in a beautiful aluminum box. The scope looked great and my hopes were high. I mounted the scope on my MI 250 where my FLT 110 had been.

      There were problems right out of the box. The focuser was loose, wobbled and could not carry the load of my QSI camera without slipping. The dew shield slips back and will not stay in place. The focuser wobble makes imaging impossible as it bends the optical path, i.e the focuser tube droops under load (only < 4lb).

      WO has repaired and fixed all problems .

      Scope works like the masterpeice that I had expected.
