Ventillating the baffle tube on an 1100 Edge HD?

Also, would it help to point the scope nose-down to flow the cool air from from the rear ports down the tube rather that just up the back of the primary?

Sorry I can't help regarding ventilating the baffle, but I suspect it is not necessary if you just leave the OTA pointed corrector up for a bit to dissipate the heat. I'd at least try that first before modifying the baffle tube.

I don't think that you would gain much from a fan in the back end of the baffle tube. You might gain by adding a fan into the Fastar hole though. But if your temperature is continuing to quickly drop during your session it may still be difficult to keep up. How fast and large are your ambient temperature fluctuations?
