Question about Meade 8" LX90 LNT Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope with SmartFinder w/ FREE UPS
Meade says to turn the mirror lock to the lock position after focusing. They state not to tighten to much, just firm. When I turn mine to the lock position it acts like it hits a stop - does not get snug - is this correct" How does the mirror lock work and is ther anywhere I can get an exploded view of the scope?
The 'lock' is a ring gear that closes a ferrul against the draw tube to restrict its motion. It is not intended to be a hard lock. Try the Meade Advanced Users Group for further tips.
