The secondary is mounted toward the front of the telescope tube underneath the focuser (hole).

The scope must be collimated once you install it.

I would speak to someone in the department as to what you can do as there has to be some mechanism in the system to allow for your problem. It may be as simple as signing a statutory declaration in front of a magistrate /lawyer or filling out other paper work to get you through the process.

My boy put coins in the eyepiece receptable and damaged or dislodged the mirror. Can this be fixed?


Yes there are two mirrors-- the small secondary underneath the focuser and the large primary-- on the bottom.

You can remove the entire secondary "spider" and then glue the secondary back on using epoxy or silicon.

Then put it back in an collimate the scope. If the primary mirror is damaged then it is not worth repairing.

My canon Rebel Xt EOs will not fully focus and take the picture when in automatic focus. It's been doing it for a day or so....I didn't do anything..I took the card out but that's really the only thing...


There are several possible reasons for it, so let me go through them, one by one.

1. Dirty or Defective lens. Check your lens, and if you have a way to get other lens to test the camera, please do it. This includes to check for proper cleaning of both the lens glass and the lens contacts.

Sometimes the iris mechanism in the lens is failing, so there is not adequate light through the lens, which causes this problem.

2. Behind the main mirror, there is the secondary mirror, which is used for auto-focus. I warn you that you have to perform the following with extreme precautions.

There is a spring that is located on the right side of the main mirror (seeing the front of your camera). such srping keeps in palce the secondary mirror. You need to move the main mirror with a tip of a pen (something plastic, not metal) without force so much such mirrors, and don't touch the shutter blades behind the mirrors.

Moving the mirrors you will see ans sense such spring. IF the spring is lose or missing, then that is the reason that such Auto-Focus is not working.

3. Dirty contacts on the camera where the lens is attached. Just clean them (No liquids. Just an eraser pencil or dry wipe will do the job).

4. Defective DC/DC board that controls the lens auto-focus mechanism. Unfortunately, only it can be confimed in a Camera repair shop.

I hope the above can help you to identify why your camera is failing.

If still you need support, please let me know.

Regards,

The secondary small mirror that guides the light from the lens to the sensors ( sensors sit at the bottom of the mirror box , underneeth the main mirror ) may be out of position. To check : take lens off and gently lift the main mirror half way up ( pushing up ) and see if the secondary mirror is dangling ( which it should not be doing ). Correct 1) reingage spring 2) reingage hinge.
