read Rod's shocking findings

I read Unk Rod (Mollise's) blog post (in June batch) about the major problem he had with his new-ish SCT telescope. Thinking grease was coming off the central shaft, he opened it up. The strange colour and pattern on the inside of the OTA was in fact the paint coming off! Wow. And apparently other users are experiencing this. A surprising mistake, which it seems the manufacturer is not owning up to. The other bizarre thing he discovered is that the applied glue to the corrector plate complicating removal. I immediately thought conspiratorial thoughts... He hammered things out (do not take that literally) thank the Universe but it is just another disappointment from Celestron.
