Celestron 8se internal paint flaking

Recommended Posts

I’ve not used the C8 in anger for some time - at least 2 years.

When I took a look at it, through the corrector plate, I noticed some large dark areas on the mirror, check corrector and noting matched.

Then I noticed the Matt finish on the inside of the tube is flaking off.

Any thoughts as to how best to deal with this?

At least the corrector plate needs a clean anyway, but appears to have no scratches of marks, ditto for other optical surfaces.
