Secondary mirror in image

Hello
I have an Meade LX200 classic F6.3 253mm . My problem is whenever I attempt to use a focal reducer I cannot obtain proper focus without a shadow from the secondary mirror showing up in the image. This happens weather I use a DSI , modified web cam or digital camera attached.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Tom
