I have a laser collimator I could bring along.
If you bring your scope, we might be able to sharpen it up a little.

Hi Paul,
Would you have a look at my grey scope if I brought it along to the meeting? The collimation is out slightly on that but from what Geoff said it should be fairly easy to adjust?
Thanks Chris

Hi Chris,

I'll lend you the collimator, and (if it's a Newtonian) I'll give you any help you need.
If it's not a Newtonian, you can still have the collimator, but you're on your own using it.

See you Tuesday,
P.

HI Chris
It is a Newtonian however collimation is achieved by adjusting the secondary mirror only as the Primary mirror is fixed and cannot be moved. I will try to assist you tomorrow night as I will be attending the meeting.
