For the first time in my ownership of my LS 8, I've discovered that the unit that holds the secondary mirror actually rotates within the corrector plate.
I don't know whether this is usual for the LS series of scopes; does anyone else have a 'rotating' secondary? On a couple of other forums there is discussion about whether the alignment of the secondary is critical - it is generally reported that for Celestron scopes it is critical, but it's less certain for Meade scopes.
Does anyone fancy seeing if their LS8 secondary rotates?
Please report back
