Refractor telescopes refract, or “bend” incoming light to a focus by means of an objective lens. Cover the mirror surface with tissue, and leave the mirror in a warm area until it is completely dry before replacing in the mirror cell and telescope. For example, the Orion 6″ Dobsonian Telescope, which has a focal length of mm, used in combination with the supplied 25mm eyepiece, yields a power of: But if you want to use a larger finder scope or a heavier eyepiece the telescope may no longer be properly balanced, and will not hold its position properly.
