Question about Meade ETX-125EC (500 x 127mm) Telescope
When i turn the focusing knob in and out the image iam loking at also moves around side to side.is this a repair i can do myself ?
The ETX family (and other Meade LX telescopes), use a moving mirror system for focus. The focus knob moves the main mirror in and out. For smooth operation, there is some slack on the central tube that allows the mirror to rock slightly as it moves. That is a normal condition, and the movement is magnified, the greater the magnification of the eyepiece.
