Hi Kerry

I just centered it using the method suggested by Starizona in this video

After that, the Poisson point was centered, relative to the secondary shadow. It wasn't because when I took the corrector off I made a mistake during the re-assembly process and I didn't align the marking I made before de-assembling it with the notch on the secondary holder.

Once aligned, I had the secondary centered again.

Best regards

Alfredo

Thanks. I was wondering if you used the method in the video. Good to know that method is easy and effective.

Hi Kerry

That method worked for me because I made the markings when I took the corrector off.

If there are no markings, I don't know if it will work. I've read somewhere that new OTAs have markings made at factory. Mine didn't have any.

Best regards

Alfredo
