LlI have a c-6 cass. I have mag.3.5 skies :( i just did a rudementary collimation(250 x) and i could see e- f stars!! Mostly directly at 125 x? I turned astromy diagram upside down and put mirror along its side..looks about right? Is it wishful thinking :question:

Not at all - sounds right to me. Also sounds like (besides another good c6) that your seeing was good. Poor seeing can erase these stars unmercifully. Glad you made that catch!!!

Nope. Very doable in a 4" refractor, so should be a piece of cake in the C6 in pretty decent seeing.

Good job.
