    100% the concave side to the secondary and convex to eyepiece , I have had many of these scopes they sell for just about nothing here in RSA so I purchase and donate once properly collimated they are not bad however if the corrector is only a single lens then its not worth any effort

    Final update on THIS subject anyway - lol - the Svbony laser arrived from Amazon in one piece, but did need collimation, that was done with an assist from my little roller bearing block. Had a chance to use the laser on the 127EQ this afternoon. Surprisingly enough my previous crude collimation attempts were pretty close on. Using the dandy laser gizmo it took no time at all to get a solid collimation dialed in.

    Yay laser collimators!

    The corrector lens was properly installed thick lens towards the secondary and yes it is a glued two-piece unit.

    Now we just need some clear skies in Chicagoland to have some fun. THANKS to all for the much needed assistance offered to this aging rookie.
