I recently moved and know I have to do a proper collimation of my Celestron Edge 11". I do have a Hotech device, video etc.
[ My CRC 6 actually fell over in the moving van when they hit a curb! They had it standing upright loose, ready to off-load while they backed into the new driveway. But at least I had that well, well padded in a Pelican Long Storm-style case. I was using harsh language about that!!]
My worry may sound silly, but I can only ask. When trying outside I used to just eyeball it by looking and then twiddling the 3 adjustment screws, it sometimes seems like those screws are getting awful loose! Is it possible I could accidentally back them out so far the 2ndary just drops loose into the main tube? That really would be a disaster!! Is this possible? Or is there some kind of locknut or washer that gaurantees the 2ndary is not just going to fall off like a muffler off an '82 Pontiac??
If this is really stupid then hey, I'd rather be foolish than full of woe!
P.S. The Edge was gingerly transported in my rear seat and in the Celestron padded carry case, but still...
