Hey everyone! Reaching out to my knowledge crew here. Last night, I tried collimating for the first time and it was ridiculous. I had to use stars other than Polaris due to clouds. Needless to say, I should’ve waited. Anyway, now my scope is out of collimation. I need help. I’d like to create an artificial star as opposed to dropping $100. How to make one is easy. It’s putting it into play that has me flummoxed (love that word).
I have a Celestron 6SE. Can someone please tell me how far it has to be and how to go about using it for collimation? It’s how to set it up that has me fumbling a bit. Having my scope out of collimation is really bugging me. I’m mad I didn’t wait for Polaris and the next few days are supposed to be cloudy.
