Anti-shifting screw

At Meade Teleskopes you have to adjust the focus by moving the mirror up and down. Because of this, the mirror and the focus can vary in high-speed moving (called mirror-shifing). You can fix the mirror by turning a screw in the transport safety machanism. But watch out: don't adjust the focus with the mirror now! The screw from the adjustment can break if you turn it too hard! (Do it at your own risk.) To focus an objekt, you need a normal focuser assembly now!
