Hey - you're one step ahead of me. I had to send my Celestron 8-PEC back to the factory for some repairs this winter. I got it back in March, and haven't had the time to get it out since. I drug it out last November to do some observing, and found that the drive motors were toast. (It's 11 years old now).

Any way - I hope to get some more time as summer comes on as well.

Good luck and good observing!
