SOURCE: balancing a 70mm refractor tube

Looking at pictures I found on the web, I see a knob on the bottom that tightens the scope to the dovetail bracket on the bottom of the scope. First attach all of your eyepiece then loosen that knob and slide the scope back or forth until it will balance without tightening the knob. Or if you do not have the manual you can download it for free here.

How3 do you remove the mirror from ETX-125-EC for cleaning?


YOU DO NOT! This is a Maksutov style telescope. These must be collimated on an optical bench if the tube is dis-assembled. Meade can do the cleaning properly and or Dr. Clay in Arkansas.

I got a Meade Model 4600 at a yard sale with no info on it. I think it is missing a lens. Is there any way I can find out. Also, is there any written material or directions I can get for it? Thanks. K


This is a reflector style telescope on an Equatorial mount.

The mount must be polar aligned in order to use it. Read my TIPS on equatorial mounts on my profile page.

The eyepieces slip right into the focuser. The LARGER the number written on the eyepice the LOWER the magnification.

Here are all the Meade manuals, find your telescope near the REFLECTOR topic header:

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.
