Meade will not sell you a corrector plate. The scope must be returned to Meade. Call their customer service line here-
The shipping will be very expensive along with the repair. Possibly taking it to a local Meade dealer may be more economical??

Meade will NOT sell you a corrector plate. They will want the scope back. The corrector plate must be matched optically with the mirror. It is VERY expensive to make this repair, and may not be economical to do. Call Meade:

Does it have a name on the scope? If it has a MIRROR in the bottom it is a REFLECTOR.
If it has a lens on the front it is a REFRACTOR. Look on Meade's manual web site under the header REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope.

These parts are only available from Meade, or if you find an old scope on astromart.com that is being torn apart and sold as parts. You might find a replacement gasket at a well stocked hardware store--- maybe?
