Personally I wouldn't call it a fix as much as an "Upgrade." In my opinion a fix would be free. Considering you're no the only person I've mention this feature as a problem, I'm surprised Orion Just doesn't make this feature go away or a least put the option in to turn it off, For free.

We currently offer an optional upgrade for the auto shut-off feature on the Intelliscope Object Locator. It's not a bug fix or upgrade patch. Instead, it is a change that can be made to increase the auto shut-off time. The shut-off won't be disabled, but it will be increased to 50 minutes instead of 15. Because the EPROM is built into the hand controller, we will need to service the unit to implement the longer shut-off. The optional change costs $30 + $6.95 S&H. The turnaround time takes approximately 2-3 weeks. -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
