Quote:Thanks Doug and Jim for the responses, now my second question is when the alignment star is inside the inner most circle, does that also mean the alignment star is inside the Telescopes eyepiece?

Quote:I have a Telrad on my Z10, and use it exclusively, going directly to wide field EPs. I can find what I am looking for usually in a matter of seconds. I don't even use the finder scope any more. A nice mod for a Telrad is to put flexible adhesive fridge magnets on the bottom. Then you can take it off, put it back on, and move it around very easily. I have it calibrated so if I push it up against the focuser block, and forward against the lip of the OTA it's ready to go. One of the biggest improvements for the overall enjoyment of the scope - and for not much money.

Quote:I reached a watershed moment last night......I had to change my Telrad batteries....both of them. They finally went dead after my memory experiment failed, causing me to frequently forget to turn it off.
