Good afternoon, I have had my Meade LS8 for a few years now. Unfortunately, I can count on one hand how many times its been used. However, with this lockdown, I've had the opportunity to get it out with the family to apritiate the sky.
When I was out last night, I was focusing and something 'pinged' inside but everything seemed to work. When I parked the telescope to take it inside I hear a rattle and one inside I turned it on again to get the scope up so I could see that was going on. One inspection, there are some marks on the glass and there looks to be a spring clip inside. So, my questions are 1) Is the glass knackered 2) wheres the spring clip from? 3)how do I get it out as I'm scared that further transport will cause more damage?
