Hoping that someone can help me with some advice, I attach here a short presentation of the problem, as well as 3 photos as samples.
I recently bought a Vixen R200SS (an older model - picture attached) and, after washing the mirrors and collimating, I hoped to put it to work. I was unable to reach any results although I tried to use both the dedicated coma corrector (picture attached) and a Baader coma corrector (MPCC Mark III). I don't realize what I'm doing wrong. The last option would be to purchase a newer coma corrector and a dedicated adapter (links attached). But I'm not sure this will solve the problem. Because my experience with Newtonian telescopes is very limited, I wonder if it would not be possible for this problem to be from the telescope.
So, any advice will be welcome and, of course, appreciated.
Thank you very much.
