  1. Hello, thanks for your reply! I'm using it for visual observations only. Thanks for letting me know, I knew it would have disappeared if I put the focuser out if the way but was intrigued nonetheless! Can you develop this a bit more for me : Do you mean I should find a target first, focus it and then collimate the scope? If yes, what kind of target do you mean? Thanks again!
  2. Hello everyone, As a farely new member and astronomer, I've decided to seek help for collimation. The task seems pretty daunting at first but I think I got the basics down. Unfortunately I cannot find any answers for the questions I have, so here it is: Is it 'normal' to see the focuser's end? As you can see in the attached picture (poor quality, let me know if I should do another) we can see a rectangle at the left, the focuser. I don't think I should be seeing this and I don't know what causes the problem since the secondary 'seems' to be aligned and the doughnut is dead center. I'm using a XT10 and the focuser is all the way in. Thanks for your precious time, Antoine
