Align secondary on 200p

For the discussion of posted tutorials so as not to break up the threads. Just start a thread here with the same name as the tutorial.

TUTORIAL DISCUSSION

Why a tutorial discussion section? Well, if a person is posting a tutorial thread in segments, the tendency is for people to post questions in-between. This causes the tutorial to become convoluted.

So, if you post a tutorial, especially if you intend it to be several messages long (ie, in steps) please also post a thread here with" <name of tutorial> discussion" as the subject.

Thanks

Hi, I have a Skywatcher 200p dob ( with all settings out of kilter) I've got a (Cheshire) , (bobs nobs fitted) ,(a Laser collimator) I've read & read how to collimate the thing,watched videos etc (yes it was my pride & joy now it's the thing) I've lots of patience but even that is dwindling ,I can do the paper opposite the focuser ,the paper in tube, and now understand what ime looking at BUT
THE SECONDARY is my thorn in the side it is adjustable up down, side to side,around,and so on,
I thought I had it right several times only to find it's not right,ime thinking I will never do it !
I think the main thing is how do I know the correct adjustment re the middle screw ? Too high too low & tilt to compensate
The whole secondary thing gr !!! Shed now locked after another unsuccessful few hours :crying:
Take care you lot
