Hi Ian,

If you want to have a go and clean it yourself, this link from Cloudy Nights explains how to take it apart and clean it.

Thanks Bill, I did see that. But I know my limitations with optics and its not good . So looking to get it done by someone or place better than I would. Sorry I should also say the mirror is not dirty or anything and it was well looked after. But just needs a slight blow on the optics as its going on 35 years old.

Regards
Ian
