I received this email about a non-functioning scope.  I asked for more
details on the scope, but it sounds like a Cassegrain of some sort to me. 
I've only worked with Newtonians and refractors, do any of you have advice
for him?  I suggested he stop by a public night or meeting to see what it
needs...

Thanks!
Dave

Hi,

My name is Ben Reecer.  I live out south of Graham. Thought you might be
able to help me with a bit of a problem.

We got a Meade telescope as a gift and at some point, I tripped over thee
tri-pod and cased the unit to the floor.

This seems to have knocked the mirror or something out of align so we
cannot see anything now.  I cannot find a model number but is is a shorter
barrel non-digital about 5 or 6 years old.

Is there someone you know of who can re-align it or do we have to send it
back to the manufacturer?  What would something like this cost?

If you can help me, it would be a kindness since I keep getting grief about
it.  If not, thank you anyway.

Thanks,

Ben Reecer
