I've just bought an ETX 125 mount for a couple of projects I am planning but the mount came complete with an OTA with a well and truly seized lens cap. A result of doing it up tight then dropping the scope! I've had a good look through the back and it seems the corrector survived that mishap so its become another project to free the lens cap and resurrect what could be a great little scope.
So far I've tried filter wrenches and warming it up with with hair dryer but if I get anything to turn it is the whole corrector assembly unscrewing.
Any bright ideas as to what to try next or can these things get irretrievably stuck?
