I just bought another Comet Catcher (my second one.. Sold my first and regretted it after a year).
I am going to take the scope on a driving trip and when I get back, my intention is to pull the mirrors and send them in for modern, protected coatings.
The question is, how is the secondary mirror mounted? I can see that it is in a can, and I can see that there is a big Phillips head type screw that goes into the front and my guess into the can, and there are three small collimtion screws that one would guess acts on the can to tilt it.
How though is the secondary mirror held in this can? Anyone know and any thoughts on whether it can be removed?
A hand drawing would be nice if you have experience tearing one of these down.
