    Default Is cleaning a diagonal done the same as cleaning a lens?



    I have cleaned my eyepieces with q-tips and alcohol. Can I clean the
    diagonals
    the same way? I have the standard Orion diagonal that came with my Orion
    StarMax 127mm.

    Thanks...

    If it's a glass prism, yes. If it's a first-surface mirror, it's much more
    delicate.
