Felt coming loose on the RH200 dew shield

Last night, when I wanted to continue to collimate the RH200 scope, I noticed that the felt from the dew shield became loose!!!

I posted on the Officina Stellare group and the good news is that I got a reply from Riccardo that he will sent a replacement and also a retrofit that will eliminate the halos that I am seeing.

The bad news is that it will take a few weeks.

The ugly news is that I can't collimate with this piece of felt hanging there. So, I have to remove the dew shield for now - which means that the front plate is VERY exposed and will collect dew :-(
