Hey everyone, my explore scientific truss dobsonian has this foam pad in the mirror box but the few times I closed the box it left a mess on my primary from the foam disintegrating.
I tried to vacuum whatever loose particles it had but that didn't work and still made a mess on the primary.
Can I just remove it or does it help support the trusses or something important?
I just want to ask here before I removed the foam and it ends up keeping me from using my telescope if it was serving a purpose.
Right now I have the mirror out because I left my telescope outside and my two youngest kids were playing with the water hose.......they wet it and I had to rinse it again.
I'm looking for something to protect the mirror from dust and falling objects but I guess that's a different topic.
