We're definitely on the same page, Frank!
For whatever reason, I never had much luck with any kind of superglue. I may have a tendency to use too much. But when it gets on my fingers, it works, well, Super!
So I used the clear silicone and let it set well overnight and the connection is good. Everything back together and I did the flashlight test to make sure nothing was adversely affected...
From the 4" mark to the 9" mark is the stated 5", or 127mm.
Plus the CO shadow reads just about right at 1-11/16" or 1.6875" or 43mm or 34% or there abouts. I actually measured 44mm across the baffle giving 34.6%, but why split hairs.
It's down from 41% and I'm sure I won't even notice that difference of 6 or 7% anyway.
I really need a good Metric scale!
So I too will have to get a viewing session on Jove and some stars. It may need collimation after all the jostling, but once I secured the primary baffle retaining ring, it has been right on, no matter what I do.
Very good, thanks!
Added: Frank, this is definitely the largest baffle, relative to the scope aperture I've ever seen. I had to fix a creeping secondary baffle on an ETX 90 and I looked at one on a C-90 and they were both much more shallow - being wider than they were high.
