What's the best way to reattach the secondary mirror to the mounting plate? I've been playing with my LX3 to try and improve the view. Right now the secondary is offset to one side by 1.53mm. Last year I posted the question if the secondary had to be perfectly centered, and some of the responses were that it might have been done at Meade to correct for mechanical alignment issues. i took some measurements today and the baffle and hole in the corrector seem to be pretty well centered. The baffle is only off center by 0.025mm and the hole in the corrector is off center by 0.43mm. I'm thinking that that's pretty good for a scope that was rushed out the door in the mid-80's.
When I collimate with a star, I can almost get the rings concentric, but the poisson spot isn't quite centered. I can't adjust any farther because the screw at the 8 o'clock position is bottomed out. So I would like to remove the mirror from the mounting plate, and reattach it centered on the plate. I have some black sided foam tape that's used to attach automobile trim. Will that work, or is there a better way?
Here's a couple drawings to give you an idea of what I'm looking at. (Not to scale. )
