£75.00 is a real bargain for a proper bench test of a refractor. By having all the Esprit scopes tested they are able to get a break on the price charged by ES Reid. My StellaMira scope was bench tested by ES Reid and has been flawless. 👍🏻

Likewise my StellaMira is the same 👍

From what I gather, there are very few (if any) dud Esprits, occasionally one requires the collimation to be tweeked.

Tweaked, but not sure about collimation on a refractor, if it is possible to tweak then yes, but he doesn't open the tube and adjust lens positions etc...

It is just easier to take in mind that you have a scope from FLO, that Es Reid would have accepted if he had bought it from a distributor.

That is the peace of mind that the £75 buys you, you could spend more than that just getting it shipped to you on a non vibrant container from the factory.

ES just tests and makes minor tweeks as anything more than that isn’t cost effective on a brand new scope. While he certainly has the knowledge to do a lot more better to just reject the scope and let SW sort it out.

Kind of read between the lines... "we have soooooo many waiting for delivery on this scope"

I don't think that he says that he is dissatisfied with the scope, just with the extra and seperatly charged "check service". My feel is that since the vendor, whoever that is, decides to offer a full refund, that should be for the product/service in question and not the full order.

We are the vendor. We have provided a telescope that has been tested by Es Reid so are confident it will perform well. 

We offered to accept the telescope back for refund because after he received it Jaxon posted here saying he also wants a report/certificate. We don't offer that. 

All telescopes sold at FLO are covered by our 30-day return policy. 

HTH, 

Steve

Personally, I don't see much technical difference between an invoice that says:

And a pretty piece of paper that says:

"This is to certify that this Esprit has undergone a Optical Bench Test) blah blah blah"
