Hi all. First post here.
Orion Space Probe 130ST
I have had this telescope for about 9 years and use it infrequently. We have recently moved to a much better location for backyard observing and I took it out for the first time in about 4 years. It was in my basement where it is about 65 degrees and it fogged up pretty bad when I took it out into the hot humid evening. Oh well, live and learn! Anyway after an hour or so the optics cleared but the view was still fuzzy. I figured the collimation was out so I treated myself to an HoTech SCA Laser Collimator.
So I get the telescope all aligned with the laser but when I take out the laser and put in the collimation cap just to see the difference the secondary doesn't seem to be quite centered. And as you look into the cap (or just the focuser tube without the cap) you can see the screws for the mount for the secondary mirror at the 12 and 3 o'clock positions like the assembly is in crooked. I have attached a fuzzy picture from my phone to give you a better idea what I mean.
Is this OK or does it need to be corrected and how is that done. There are 4 knobs on the outside of the tube but I have not messed with them as I don't want to bugger it up any more than it already is (or isn't).
