C9.25 Loose Baffle: HELP!

Posted By Andy Sedlacek


That sounds like scary stuff! Indeed that should have been disclosed. You may wish to try contacting Don Rothman at Astro Parts Outlet (he's one of the sponsors here). That gentleman is REALLY GOOD at helping people with Celestron CAT issues of all kinds. I don't know if I'm allowed to post a phone number on these threads, so I won't. But you can look in the "Sponsors" area of A-mart and you'll find his contact info.

Hope the issue is a minor one to fix!

All the best,

Refractor contrast vs aperture advantage

Posted By Andy Sedlacek

Here in "Snowkane", I mean, Spokane, we get over 110 nights of frost. So I have a spot made-out in our not 100% insulated garage. When I know the good night is coming, the to-be-working scopes get to camp in the cold a few nights ahead. No waiting, just a very frigid telescope waiting to be hugged (and stuck to if you like to lick 'em!)
Yes, waiting extra hours for a cool down is a pain. But if you plan ahead an inch....

All the best

This will probably be my new most used scope! All I need now is to get it one a particular Great Polaris mount.

My favorite 1st scope recommendation is back

Posted By Andy Sedlacek

Once again the 6-inch aperture RULES for an ultimate, but wise, 1st-time telescope! My first REAL telescope was indeed a 6-inch...6-inch f/8 Edmund mirror in a homemade tube full of duct tape, Krylon spray paint, and plumbing clamps. I called it THE HUNTER back in my teen years.

All the best
