Cleaning my telescope
Safest way is to use a camera puff blower brush. A little dust will not affect the image. Do NOT touch the mirrors with a cloth as the dust will scratch the coatings. For really stubborn stains, you can rinse with distilled water and let air dry.

HOW TO CLEAN MY TELESCOPE
There's a good reason to ignore dirt, aside from reducing the things to worry about in life. A dirty lens or mirror can always be made clean, but a scratched one is scratched forever. Cleaning causes tiny scratches, or sleeks, if you don't do it right, and maybe even if you do. A few sleeks don't matter, but a lot of them will. So clean your optics rarely.
the traditional method for dusting optics is to brush lightly with a camel's-hair brush. Sold in camera shops, these brushes have soft bristles with minimum tendency to scrape grit against a lens. Brush very lightly. Store the brush in its container or a plastic bag.Camera shops also sell cans of compressed gas for blowing dust off lenses. Be careful with the kind that use liquid propellants; these have a reputation for spitting onto the glass and leaving a residue if the can is tipped or shaken in use. Blowing (instead of sucking) with your own breath is also likely to leave spit marks.

Fixed tripod mount.
I fixed my problem to my meade polaris 114EQ-D (36x 114mm) reflecting telescope. I took a piece of small pipe with a dust mop conection in it with a hole through it and took a 1/4-20 x1 1/2 in. long and bolted them together. It works great.
