Subject:	ETX-90 slipping secondary problem

I've got an old ETX-90, and the secondary has slipped out of place on
the corrector.  I can see that this is a known issue, and I read your
tech tip for fixing it, but I'm hesitant to try it myself.

I called Meade's customer support number, and was told they would not
repair it because it's too old.  I think it's outrageous that I can't
even pay Meade to get this fixed, but I know of no other contact phone

Do you happen to have any contact information for Meade other than their
CS phone number and address?  I'd like to speak to someone else about

I appreciate any help you can offer, and thanks for all the hard work
you've put into you site over the years.
