Looking through viewfinder i see dirt & black specks


It depends where the dirt is. Following the light path, look at the rear surface of the lens. A dirty rear lens surface will have the most affect on picture quality or what you see in the viewfinder of any position in the light path. Like all optical cleaning procedures, hold the lens with the rear lens surface facing the ground so gravity will work with you. Start by blowing clean air on it using canned air or a blower such as a Rocket blower or ear syringe. If that is sufficient, do not continue the sequence. This holds true at the conclusion of each step because the more aggressive your cleaning becomes, the more risk there is of damage. If it is still dirty, gently brush it with a sable or camel hair brush. If that is not sufficient, gently wipe it with a dry lens photograph lens tissue (do not use coated tissues) or a microfiber cloth. Finally, as a last resort, dampen a corner of a lens tissue or microfiber cloth (do not put the wet solution directly on the lens) and gently wipe with a circular motion. Finish by wiping with a dry section of the tissue or cloth. Although the front surface of the lens is not as important, repeat the process for the front surface.
If you still see the dirt in the viewfinder, are two possible remaining locations; the bottom surface of the prism located above the mirror or the mirror.
Clean the prism first and avoid cleaning the mirror if possible, or any contact with the mirror. The prism can be cleaned following the sequence outlined above. If that doesn't work, the problem is the mirror.
CAUTION! The mirror is front surfaced and is very susceptible to scratches and other damage unlike a conventional mirror which is rear surfaced with the glass protecting the coating. Aggressive cleaning should be avoided.
Carefully follow step 1 of the lens cleaning procedure (air) and step 2 (brushing) if necessary. As far as the third and fourth steps, I would not use them myself because of the risk of mirror coating damage. It would be better to take your camera to a qualified repairman.


remove the lens and look above the mirror at the bottom of the viewfinder prism. If it is dirty, clean it as you would clean a lens surface. The next place to look is the mirror.
CAUTION! The mirror, unlike the mirror over your bathroom sink, is front surfaced and there is no glass between you and the delicate and easily damaged coating. Hold the camera with the mirror facing down so that gravity will work in your favor. If that does not work, I would stop and take it to a camera repairman because you do not want to risk scratching the surface by using lens tissue or cleaner.

How to operate


This is a reflector style scope with a large mirror in the bottom, and a small secondary mirror underneath the focuser. The focuser is on the UP end of the tube as the picture shows in your question.

Simply insert the eye[pieces into the hole on the focuser and turn the knob left or right until the image comes to focus. Practice during the day time on a distant object starting with the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

Read this--
http://texasastro.org/telescope.php about the types of telescopes.

Objects in the night sky are tiny and many of them are very dim-- the scope must be pointed directly at them or you will not see anything.

We left our telescope out on a covered deck. Now the mirror is badly pitted. can you grind it? or does it need replaced? (deep space hunter 10 ")


The mirror must be recoated -- the pitting is in the coating NOT in the glass--Google mirror recoating.

My Harding Deep Space Hunter 10 will not sit still. It is constantly tilting up with the slightest touch or tap. Any thoughts?


I have never seen one of these--

can you NOT tighten up the Altitude knob tension by adding some teflon washers or felt washers?

The red color is very faded. Therefore the rest of the color palette is faded as well. Have installed new cartridge. No help. Have cleaned and realigned heads. No help still.


This is a result of a design flaw in this engine. The laser scanner mirrors are dirty. This is a common issue as a result of paper and or toner dust in the machine building up on the scanner mirrors. It usually begins in the margins of the magenta, and moves up the machine until all of the colors are affected. The machine needs to be taken apart and the scanner assembly cleaned. I have performed this repair over 30 times wth 100% excellent results. I usually charge $75 to fix it. Contact your local tech to see if they are capable of performing the repair. If in the Sacramento, Ca area, contact Hughes Technical Consulting through FixYa to have this done.

I need a manual for the deep space hunter 6 inch purchased around 2002. model number DSH-6


Why would you need a manual for a simple Dobsonian reflector telescope.

The Company does not exist-- anymore.

A manual only showed how to assemble the telescope, it DOES NOT tell you how to USE the telescope to find objects in the sky.

This is a good beginner telescope by the way. Here is how to get started using it:

1. During the day time align the small finder scope and the big scope on the same distant target. Then you can use the finder scope to locate and POINT the main tube to objects in the night sky.

Also during the day put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. This is your LOWEST magnification. Practice focusing on a distant object. The image will be upside down--- this is perfectly normal. Nothing is wrong with the scope.

The moon should be the first target at night.
