Rear mirror I have a telescope which I believe the internal mirror in the base may have been adjusted. Is there a way to test or reset to original, or am i just wasting time. The manual states never to adjust this but try telling my son. I have tried to locate something on this on the net but cannot locate any help. Yours help would be much appreciated
I may be telling you something you already know, but just in case.
If your telescope is a newtonian/dobsonian (i.e., long, large tube) then the mirror in the bottom can be adjusted to collimate or align properly.
On the other hand, if the top of the telescope has glass over it (refractor telescope) then putting it back into place will be more labor intensive and I wouldnt even try it. Try going to the manufacturers website and asking them. You might post the same question on a telescope forum called cloudynights.com. If you live in a large city, try searching for local astronomy clubs as every astronomy club has some guy there who takes these things apart for no reason just to put them back together.
