    Default Focus - Celestron CPC 800



    Hello Everyone,

    I have a CPC 800 XLT celestron. When I turn the focus knob to the right with the primary mirror almost touching the end of the tupe (only when focusing near objects) the image moves. When I look to the primary when doing this turn it seems that the mirror moves to the right. I believe this is not right.

    I have this doubt, could you please help me?

    Regards,
    Jonas
