Took the filter back to Widescreen Centre today.  They agree that it has a pinhole and are going to replace it.  Hopefully I should get another one i  a day or so.

Glad they are going to replace it, but they should have offered this in the first place not try to fob you off until you had to go to see them personally and show them and because of their delay you missed the mercury transit.

This is really good news Delphine, but I must admit I would have expected that you would have received better service than that from the Widescreen Centre.

Glad you got it fixed Delphine. I agree with everyone else that the service you received from The Widescreen Centre was very poor. I would avoid using them again.
