    I line all three lines up when using the Laser collimator to be sure it is always the same each time I use it.
    Excellent tip.

    Thanks Panhard.
    I was so involved in browsing the forum that I forgot to introduce myself first.
    My XT10 was purchased last fall. I've been doing some upgrades i.e. flocking, Telrad, better ep's.
    New to the hobby and perhaps too concerned about the equipment when I should be getting out there more. Just my nature I suppose.
    Thanks for the reply. I'll look into the focuser question a bit more.
    JJ

    Nice scope and EP choice there John.

    Throw in a 2x Barlow and you are pretty much set for most stuff.

    Happy Hunting!
