Since I am writing about a non Meade piece of equipment I figured I would do so here, anyway my kids gave me a gift of a Celestron Power Tank Pro which failed right out of the box and I had to return to Celestron. Well it’s replacement arrived yesterday and after charging it, it to failed as well with the same problem. All total the return and replacement process took over 10 days and now it looks like it might be another 10 days. Where is the quality control anymore?? You would think that on a replacement they would insure the replacement unit worked before shipping....

You may want to consider a different power supply other than a Power Tank Pro...

I went through 3 or 4 PowerTanks in the past, even if they work out of the box they rarely last a year.  And that's with being careful to recharge them each month if I don't use them.


Anyway, I purchased a 12v battery from Kendrick--www.kendrickastro.com-- (2080--12v 18AH battery with .750 amp battery charger and padded carry bag)

and it's never failed me, a few years on and still going great.
