How many revolutions does the primary mirror lock have on the new 14"f8?, mine moves about 1/4 inch, the focuser still works thou

does that mean that the focus lock is stuck in the unlock position? 

anyone know how to correct this?

There is no mirror lock on the LX850 f/8 OTAs.  If your OTA has two knobs -- a long one to focus and a short one for the mirror lock, then you have an LX200 f/10 OTA.  The mirror locking knob only makes a few turns from fully unlocked to "snug."  When the mirror lock starts to feel snug, stop turning.  You can still use the focus knob.
