Telescope Maintenance

What's this?  Posting during the day?they will revoke my stargazing license! :)

Today's the day I will get my scope totally sorted, ready for the nights!  So the plan is to drag it outside, attach the camera, try out some of my focusing solutions, align the spotter scope accurately and hopefully get everything sorted to make the nights a little easier.  I will of course, let you all know how it goes.

I really gotta align my scope. When you have trouble finding the moon, you know somethings a wee bit off.

I just did mine ... used the find something on horizon in daytime and line up main scope, then tweak screws on spotter for about 20 minutes, curse some, go inside in a huff, make a coffee, come back remember that optics flip the image and finally sort it :)
