  1. Hi. I would appreciate some advice on collimating an OO VX10.. Recently purchase secondhand when I took off the fan cover to collimate the beast ( my old scope was a 150mm F/5 newt) I noticed that, going by the pictures on OO site, the three hex headed bolts on the outside of the knurl headed bolts are missing. I have two questions about these missing bolts. Does anyone know the length and diameter of these - so I can replace them - and are they the tensioning ( my guess : yes) or adjusting bolts? In advance , thanks
  2. Reccommended Focal Reducer

    I've used a Revalation 0.5 reducer on my QHY5-II/Skywatcher 150mm f4 reflector and found it OK. For FOV with various cameras/eyepieces I use the 12dstrings web site - a good tool
  3. Can you sell software?

    Not sure that the last bit is true - its is true that an Windows OS cannot be legally transferred from one computer to another but selling the computer with OS is OK
