Total newbie. My husband and I just purchased our first scope (new)--a Celestron Astromaster 130eq. I found that it was difficult to get a "full" view through the scope, with a portion of the view seeming to eclipse. Upon inspection inside, I found that the secondary mirror doesn't appear to be centered down the focuser, but beyond that, I noticed a small chip on the edge of the secondary mirror. Is that normal? Is it going to affect performance? Again--complete newbie so I have no idea about these things. Should I contact the company I purchased through and get a replacement/return?
Thank you for your help.
