I would like to ask those who have more optical knowledge than I have. Recently 
I used a solar filter on a Maksutov style telescope. When I first used it there 
seemed to be a lot of reflections showing in the eyepiece. Looking at the 
central reflective surface of the corrector plate I tried to reduce the problem 
with a round piece of Post-It note. This seemed to help??? Are there any ideas 
or comments or concerns with trying to reduce reflections with this type of 
optic. Thanks in Advance for any advice or comments.
