smudge inside Takamar lense


I bought a Takamar telephoto lense on ebay. Just recently noticed that when looking through the back side, an inner piece of glass has a smudge on it. I cant really tell if it is effecting the lenses performance. Is is possible to open up the lense and clean it or is that too much of a risk? Thank you.

Try taking a picture of the smudge and post it here. It might be the result of a careless cleaning procedure, or fungus.
