aligning & centering a Telrad on a NexStar 6SE
Posted 31 January 2013 - 01:26 PM
I'm trying to get my new 6E aligned with my new Telrad (along with 4" riser). According to Company 7 (Telrad manufacturer http://www.company7....ts/telrad.html) the reticle pattern can be aligned during daylight. Yet, even at full power , in daylight I'm unable to see the pattern. Would you folks have a "best practice" on properly doing this task? And is daylight not an option or is my Telrad not working correctly?
Thanks in advance.

I don't recommend using it for daytime alignment, it's too easy to do at night with just a few minutes and a low powered eyepiece.

You are just trying to get a finder alignment so forget all the advice about not viewing through a window.
You can touch up the Telrad alignment on the Moon or a bright star in the evening.

Take it off the raiser to do this.. its just easier to use the regular base ...
When its dark you can install the raiser and adjust it in seconds...
