See if newt says the diagonal is too small to admit 100% rays- if it does you'll probably want a bigger secondary, as was mentioned already or a lower-profile focuser [i prefer the low-profile focuser].

The only other suggestion i would bring up is 4" from your focuser center to the front of the tube is pretty minimal for this aperture scope [you'd probably have to use a dew/stray-light shield].
