So, I have been taking in a lot of info about collimating my Meade LX65 8" scope. It has a fixed primary mirror. Sadly I had to collimate my scope because the factory collimation was done with 1 screw totally over-tightened and the sadly of the secondary mirror was deformed and totally off. Fixed that and collimating it inself goes fine now.
Also the same that is mentioned here more then once: if I collimate in-focus (so CW), things are just fine. Then going to focus, still okay. But then when I continue, so out-focus, the collimation is off. And also the other way around.
And the amount of info about that is a lot but also a lot of ways of approaching: I see mentions of collimating CW as close as possible to focus, then go over the focus and do the finetune collimation CCW. But also info that it doesn't matter as long as I choose either CW or CWW and stick with that. Or choose the in between where the collimation with CW is a bit off and CCW also but the opposite of CW.
And also about focusing: if I collimate with CW, should focusing then also be done CW? Or ....
All in all a typical case of "I can't see the forest for the trees anymore" .... or even better: "I can't see the Milky Way for the stars anymore"
Thanks in advance
