Quote:Quote:You don't think he has the mirror lock ingaged do you??? Nope. There's no mirror lock on the LX90. But the focus mechanism may have been installed off axis at the factory. Best test is to remove the 3 screws securing the focuser to the backplate, fully extend the focusing rod, and manually push the mirror up and down the baffle tube. If the mirror moves freely the problem was with the focuser.
