Quote:Last year, a bat pooped on my brand new meniscus nearly fresh from the box. I thought the world was coming to an end. Also got bat poop in my hair and on the finder. Yea, that ended the night, had to ready up on how to clean glass. Goggled "clean bat poop from meniscus" Nothing showed up.

"The four points of the compass be logic, knowledge, wisdom, and the unknown. Some do bow in that final direction. Others advance upon it. To bow before the one is to lose sight of the three."
Quote:Definitely get the Bobs Knobs. It makes the process much easier and you don't have to tread and inch or so from your corrector in the dark with a sharp piece of metal.Tip: after you get the knobs on or the old screw back in place, and before it is dark (pre star-test adjustment), you can get suprisingly close to good by looking into the objective from diffent spots between about 5 and 8 feet away and eyeballing concentric circles in the mirrors. The camera is a little off (shaky hands), but you get the idea.John D
