    Default Can it be realigned? TeleVue 4x Powermate



    So, I dropped my TeleVue 4x Powermate

    Image looks fuzzy of course. I attached my LaserMate and the pointed the thing at the wall. The red dot is oblong shaped (can't be good). Does anyone here know if it can be fixed/realigned?

    thanks.

    TeleVue will handle that for you. Give them a call, they're some of the friendliest folks I have ever dealt with. Al himself may even answer the phone. Tele Vue Optics: Home

    This is what I would suggest to. They may be able to fix it for a reasonable price.

    Hmmm, TeleVue got back to me and it will cost about $150 USD. I think it will sit on the shelf for a while.

    They go for ~$250 on Cloudy Nights, so fixing would be still cheaper than buying replacement.
