RC reducer from Germany for the test. Problem: the in-travel of the focuser is not enough. The main mirror must be raised approx. SN tube collimation is always an interesting chore 1. Concentrate the repair glass 2. perform translation and rotation of the deflection auxiliary mirror 3. center the tube of the open main mirror head on the auxiliary mirror with collimating screws 4.install the main mirror 5. Cheshire's 45-degree aperture with white light (tube end closed) and main mirror collimation screws centering the image of the correction glass "blue Ghost". Thus, the SN tube is opticall...
