Looking for advice:
Saddly, I dropped my 2.5 yrs old Nexstart 4SE , and even though nothing was broken (apparently), the images now are distorted (see attached pic). Collimation problems, I guess.
I'd read that, since the 4SE is a Mak telescope, it is not an easy task (if possible at all) to align the mirrors.
What would you advise me to do? should I try to fixe it myself? I only own this 4SE scope and never ever collimated anything before. Still doable?
I guess the cost of a professional fix would be more than the cost of getting a new 4SE? (I don't know how much it would cost, but I read in a fix company they would charges $80/hr.
Should I just get over it and sell the mount, recover something and buy a new one? Maybe that's the right thing to do, but I liked the 4SE and don't want to give up as easily.
Please, advice what do you think.
