Great Service

I needed a replacement handbox and OPT had it at a great price. It was delivered the same week even with the issues we are all living with.

Works as advertised and received item within a few days

Works great. Just needed a firmware update which went through without issues. Word of advice to anyone dealing with st4 cables and the clips constantly breaking get yourself and RJ12 coupler and leave your ST4 connector plugged into the coupler when you're not using it this way you can store it and when you go to pull the hand controller out of whatever you're storing it in the clip doesn't snag on anything and stays protected.

USB Controller not compatible

In spite of the Celestron's catalog description of the controller, when I got it the message on the screen said it was not compatible with my Nextstar 8. The Celestron tech eventually admitted that my scope was too old and that there was not a replacement controller that would work. I am awaiting my refund. Not OPT's fault.

Nothing works.

No solution for the problem with my telescope has worked.
