I have an old orange clestron C11 That is apart with a refinished mirror.
I need someone to advise me on how to put it together either on line or at remote job site, where I will Deliver it.
gemmx@netins.net thanx

There are numerous references on the web, starting with this one, which concerns the Celestron 8-inch, but which is applicable to what you have.

The MOST IMPORTANT THING? The primary mirror, the secondary mirror, must go back on in the same rotational orientation they were in before the telescope was disassembled, and the small paper shims around the corrector must be put back in their original positions.
