I did find one thing today ,that may be of interest to comet catcher owners, the dew zapper strap for my 120 refractor, is a good fit for the comet catcher too.Its an Orion brand dew zapper strap.And its orange to boot. lol

over in the best of files , in the reflector forums, there is a thread for collimating Schmidt newtonians, if I had found it sooner it would have explained a lot of what I was seeing. Im gonna post here for those of us who own these scopes, hope its ok.

Oddly enough, I have had 3 of these scopes and never have had to collimate a single one. One was new and, of course, 2 were used. The only major prob was dew on the corrector. But, easily solved:
