It looked like small black dots scattered all over... weird, but true.
It is a Televue (non-Everbrite) 2" enhanced aluminum. Could it be coating problems?
I'm familiar with cleaning the optics of my scope's corrector plate, and I know that normally you don't need to do it unless it is REALLY dirty, but this is buggin' me! (I still have a bottle of specially made cleaning solution for it)
I tried to clean one of these spots very carefully, and it felt as if it wasn't just dirt, but something stuck on the actual mirror, it felt like a minuscule bump (if you get the idea).
Is there a safe way to clean this? should I take it apart and try?
Thanks for reading this long post,
Clear skies & clean equipment!
