Piece of felt covering mirror, is this suppose to be there?

I have a Meade 114EQ-GH4. Looking down through the top of telescope there is a small piece of felt covering the mirror. Is there a part missing from this end, I can not see anything through Telescope. Thank You

Here is the manual for your telescope--

The mirror at the bottom should NOT be covered-- with felt? Unless this was something Meade did to protect the mirror from dust and dirt during shipping?

I fixed my problem to my meade polaris 114EQ-D (36x 114mm) reflecting telescope. I took a piece of small pipe with a dust mop conection in it with a hole through it and took a 1/4-20 x1 1/2 in. long and bolted them together. It works great.

I was given an old Infinity 114eq. The mirror is pretty scratched up how do I get a new mirror?


A new mirror can be obtained from meade. However, are the scratches in the glass or just on the coating? Small scratches will not affect the image quality, but coating defects such as areas of discoloration can be a problem. If that is the case, then the mirror may only need re-coating. An excellent source for that is Spectrum Coatings.

Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Can't focus on anything at all


Here is the manual-- read it cover to cover--
http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/ETXtelescopes/ETX-90%20w-autostar%20man.pdf

1. Take off the lens cap

2. Put your lowest magnification eyepiece into the telescope on the TOP eyepiece port-- there is a lever on the side which rotates the diagonal mirror between the top and rear ports --- can you see light through the telescope? If not turn the lever.

3. During the day practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away-- the image will be upside down -- this is not a problem-- no UP or Down in space.!

4. The lowest magnification eyepiece is the one with the LARGEST number on it.
