I'm new to the forum. I recently picked up a 100mm Royal Astro reflector telescope as my first scope and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I have had a few clear nights and have viewed Jupiter and Saturn and I really liked what I saw!
I decided on a vintage telescope as they appear very well made compared to the new cheaper scopes. I also am looking forward to restoring this as restoration projects are a big hobby of mine too.
Which brings me to my first question regarding this telescope which I'm hoping someone could shed some light on. I'm looking to remove the mirror assembly, however I can't see how this is done as the screws going into the side of the OTA which hold the mirror are screwed into small nuts which are not reachable. How do I remove the mirror?
