Good evening from England,

Owing to my age and bad health problems ,I just cannot face any more very cold nights outside ,. So the Unistella looked good to me ,very interesting, so I bought one.

 

Well Astronomy is Exciting me once more ,and I have been observing since the 1960s.

 

I have spent so much wasted time aligning etc ,during the limited Good nights we have had in the Past year.

 

One Planet (Dwarf) that has always been an obsession with me is Pluto. So imagine my amazment when I first tried out the Unistella last October, without knowing any thing much about the Gain or exposure settings , within 15 mins I  Had photographed Pluto .

 

The finding and tracking is absolutely mind boggling. 

 

However, I cannot get Round sharp Stars. I feel that the collimation procedure is Not accurate enough.

 

So are there any Unstella owners out there who have made some little invention or thought of a way  to make it accurate ? I would be so grateful because it really is a wonderful easy scope to use and Fun.     

 

Best Wishes , Brian

Unfortunately I can’t help with the collimation but congratulations on a new scope and I hope it continues to blow your mind!
