Hi everybody

I have a fairly old celestron cpc11 that had been in storage for quite a while. Unfortunately during this storage I've left the OTA facing downwards and now oil had dropped from the focusing gears onto the inside of the corrector plate and also the secondary mirror.

Does anyone have any advice on how to get this repaired? I would prefer sydney or melbourne so I could drive my freshly serviced telescope home.

Regards

Gareth
