    hi There, Warm welcome to SGL. Hope you enjoy the forums.
  12. Another vote for not touching it!! especially the primary. I had a 10"lx 200 and took advice and read up before cleaning the corrector If you must do it :--- 1. Make some marks on the tube and retaining ring. 2. If in forks lock up at 45 deg. 3. remove carefully the little screws holding the corrector ring in place. 4. remove corrector plate, note that there may be some small pieces of packing. These must be kept and put back exactly where they came from. 5. Clean using baader wonderfluid and micro fibre cloth. Do not use this on mirrored surfaces. 6. Put corrector back in exactly the same position and re-assmble.
  13. Hi Dave, I have a mix, as I have a number of scopes, you have an excellent scope and you would not be dissappointed with any of the ep's that you have mentioned, I have a myriad 9mm, an axiom 10mm, nagler 13mm.. And spot on, I buy when the time is right and usually when one of the good folk on here have a shuffle around in their eyepiece case. A friend has the 120 deg Es eps and swears by them!

    Hi There, Warm welcome to SGL. Hope you enjoy the forums. As above unless it is a scartch to the coatings, would not be worried, you can remove when you clean the lens cell in about 3 or 4 years time
