    Default new telescope tuning



    some shops tuning your scope-- direct from fabric.tearing apart the whole scope,,and make another scope off the other lenses--"that was in my mind"..are these specialists? take away a lens and put in a flattener? or what are they hocus pocus with? it was almost the same price asa a ordinary scope-

    Default Re: new telescope tuning

    Normally "tuning the scope" means making sure that everything works properly, checking the alignment etc. It is all about quality control, which some manufacturers at the cheaper end leave up to the consumer. Some "manufacturers" or conscientious retailers check the optics of scopes they have sourced from (say) China to make sure they are "diffraction limited": and some even refuse them if they aren't up to standard (Stellarvue comes to mind here: before they started fully making their own scopes in house). Some places might also offer services to make better light baffles (eg: in a newtonian scope), or to replace standard focusers with a better type. You don't remove any lens to add a field flattener: you normally just add it at the eyepiece end.

    I assume this is what you are talking about: if not, can you add a link to the shop in question?

    All the best,

    Dean
