Re: Outer Edge smoothness

It may just be some lint or dust that has stuck at the field stop in the eyepiece. You can correct this easily enough by wiping the edge of the field stop with a lens cloth folded to make it small enough to fit. Take a good look at the field stop edge before you clean it and see it it changes afterwards. You could also try to vacuum this space if you have a small probe.

good luck,
