Waite Research questions,

I am owner of a Waite Research 17.5" Dob mirror. I had put on it the best coating Spectrum has.
I also paid for Waite Research to make the matching mirror cell. I have already paid for the mirror cell.
I have been waiting for many months without talking to anyone at Waite Research. I do not want ripped off by Waite Research.
My question is if there is a problem occurring at Waite Research?
I need the mirror cell, or I need to make a commitment to creating one for the mirror so I can move forward with building the dob.
I have requested Paypal to step in but it has been too long.
I want to know where to post this in hopes to draw the truth of what is going on.
Thanks all

I would say your 1st step should be to pick up the phone and call them and ask.

As I have expected, every time I call Waite Research, no one answers. I have left messages too.

I do not know what comes next. I may sell the primary and get out of building this scope.

Still waiting,
Greg Harper
