  1. Hi everyone, I'm not sure this is the right location for this post - if not, please move accordingly. A friend of mine has a Meade 4.5" newtonian (900 mm) on an EQ mount that suffered a small accident. Somehow, the optical tube had a rendezvous with the ground following a sudden acquaintance with Newton's Law of universal gravitation, which resulted in a broken limb in the secondary mirror spider vane. I fixed it the best I could, but it is still meh: works, somewhat stable, but it's a temporary fix at best, and won't hold for continued use. Does any of you fine gentlemen and ladies know where one can find such a replacement spider vane for that telescope? Replacing the whole thing is out of the question due to sentimental value. Thank you, - Tiago
