MAK 127 Colomation

Recommended Posts

Hey all

Does anyone in or around the worcester area know how too/can colomate a MAK 127? That would be willing to help or do mine for me :) I dropped it a little while ago and think it is out :( I haven't had chance to do a star test on it yet.

Craig,

DONT touch it till you have done a star test on it, and if it really does need it get some help with it

There are some online tutorials, but it should be very easy, much easier than with some other scopes. I've never collimated mine, but I have done a regular star test every month or so to check it is ok. Essentially, the star test will show how much it is out, if at all.

Hi, I had a skymax 127 that needed collimation a few months ago. I bought a laser collimation tool on ebay and followed the scope's instruction manual. After a few hours of patience I got it spot on.

Is not very easy but if you carefully follow the instructions and have some patience you will get it right.
