Nothing much to write home about but I did manage to get the scope's collimation pretty close.  MG_DonCapone_12MeadeACF_221127_2.png

I wasn't going to post them at all but I saw several other posts today that inspired me to put these up too.  Hope they are not a complete waste.

They really aren’t in absolute terms. I’ve done much better with the 10” earlier this season and plenty of others do better all the time.

Maybe you should try collimating on a Galilean moon too?

Perhaps but not much good for Saturn. Maybe Titan.

I actually had a good result one night using Titan, so it's doable.
