Well, I do already have the cork mounted (In 6 positions as shown in the picture) all around the cell. Do you think I should remove the one at app. 6 o'clock and allow that area to be unsupported?

I center marked my mirror with a Catseye from Catseye Collimation. I also got Jim's Catseye Chelshire eyepiece. I don't think I'll use a laser anymore. I also have an Orion Collimating eyepiece but never felt comfortable with it.
Another added addition was an Antares Twist lock Adapter for the eyepiece, getting rid og the set screw type.
Now I can't wait until a clear night (they say tonght!!!!) to try out my newly re-coated mirror and new collimation.
Thanks for listening to me throughout all of this.
