I have just received a PM from a fellow member here, he said that apparently there is someone in Melbourne who can work on Takahashi telescopes. Having been caught out on this one, all be it with another company, all I can say is don't take the chance, enthusiastic amateurs can totally stuff up takahashi equipment as I had proved to me. If you have issues with any Tak telescopes, there is NO ONE in Australia that is recognised by Takahashi that can work on their scopes, despite some people claiming that they can. Send your scope back to Japan for Takahashi to work on it, don't let anyone else near your equipment. They require specialist equipment especially on their triplet refractors.
