Collimation Video

Recommended Posts

Good one Rob!

I wish I had access to a video like this when I started out. He does a very good job of walking you though the process.

Recommended.

Absolutely excellent Rob!

"Andy Shotglass" sure makes it all clear and straightforward.

The tip about keeping the scope as near to the horizontal to prevent accidents, is very useful indeed.

I'm sure loads of people (including myself - who didn't fully understand the business of centering the secondary mirror first) will find this video very, very useful.

Good find there Rob.

Regards,

I used to be scared about collimation, now I do it with a Baader Laser Collimator for my SW 200P, this is the best video so far, really easy to understand. :cheers:

Excellent find. Much appreciation for sharing this. I've read loads of articles and I was still quite baffled until seeing that video, it clicked everything into place and it seems a little bit too easy now! There's other videos on that site too, well worth watching. A excellent site to bookmark.
