Look in your Meade manual (available online also) . On pages 33 &34 are instructions on how to collimate your scope. In the dark, you can use Polaris (no fussing with alignment needed)to adjust the collimation knobs. In the day, you can use the sun's reflection off a car's chrome trim to give you a star image. Be sure to use a ridiculous amount of eyepiece magnification so you can judge the concentric rings of an out-of-focus image to better judge the affects of your tweaking the collimation bolts. ----- Dave
