Meade 2" Diagonal Repair
Posted: 7 April 2022
Every few years I have to do a minor repair of my Meade 2" 99% Reflectivity Mirror Diagonal. As seen in these two photos, the eyepiece port comes loose over time.
Fortunately, the repair is easy. A side plate on the diagonal (either side) is removed by unscrewing three hexscrews.
This gives you access to two setscews that hold the eyepiece port tube.
I used a small jeweler's flathead screwdriver to tighten the two setscrews.
Then you replace the cover and screw in the three hexscrews.
