    Thanks, some of it is from my Christmas present from my son. It’s a laser collimator that makes it easy to collimate a telescope which is align the 2 mirrors so it gives you clear crisp views.

    I was going to say your pics look sharper than the pics people put of of theirs in their reviews. The collimator makes a distinct difference. Do you recall what shutter speed you used for pics like that? I say that because I've seen videos of of telescopes zoomed in on a tripod and I noticed a significant amount of shake still going on. Maybe they just had a cheap tripod or the wind was blowing, bad atmosphere or other??? Any insight on that?

    thanks but sharp telescope pictures are really pretty easy, there’s plenty that do a lot better. I attach my DSLR I have 77 D to the telescopes eye piece, and set my camera to video. Then I’ll take video for a minute or so and load it in software that lets me pick out the sharper frames. Load the good photos into one of many free stacking software where it makes me look like I know what I’m doing.
