So I'm having trouble with my new to me ES 208CF. I'm not sure if I'm not collimating correctly, or something else is wrong. I would appreciate some help with this if anyone has ever had issues. I will post my 1s and 10s shots I took last night to show everyone and pictures of my setup. I am also using the ES coma corrector.

I'm now looking at the photos and am wondering if the compression screw part should've screwed off and then i screw on the coma corrector. Thinking maybe something is off there in my train but Idk. Very frustrated with it right now lol/
