Years ago I got one of those mud wasp things in my TV 2" Big Barlow. Cleaned it up and works fine again. The lens came out easily, otherwise it would have been near impossible to clean well. Observatories are subject to all sorts of attack here: Wasps, hornets, mice, spiders, bats. Latest visitor is a skunk... Now I have tight covers on everything and check often.
