Subject: etx 90 ra secondary baffle rubber attachment Sent: Monday, April 23, 2007 10:04:33 From: paul (firstname.lastname@example.org) hi i was just wondering if you had the rubber sticky pad to attach the secondary baffle to my scope or know were to get one that will work as i contacted meade and they no longer sell them you must send in scope and have them do it for at least $75.00. any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated thank you for your time, paul stacy email@example.comMike here: As noted on the ETX Site Home Page, I'm not a dealer, so no, I don't have any. In fact, I don't recall seeing this being offered by any dealer. Meade would be your only source; the optics need to be recollimated following the replacement, hence Meade's desire to do the work themselves.
Subject: Declination control - EXT90 Sent: Saturday, April 21, 2007 12:32:03 From: Jim Rodgers (firstname.lastname@example.org) I have enjoyed your site for several years. Maybe I missed it, but I am looking for information on how to "smooth out" the right accession control knob action. I have an old original EXT 90. The declination control is smooth, but the r.a. adjustment is very jumpy. It is very noticeable with high power. Do you have any ideas ? Thanks , Jim RodgersMike here: You could add a lever to the RA knob; that would give more control over and should make things smoother. However, the article "ETX-90RA Secondary Baffle Fix" on the Helpful Information: Telescope Tech Tips page might be useful to you.
