Lambda Studios: HELP PLEASE. NEED ANSWER WITHIN THE WEEK. I got a Celestron NexStar 130 SLT telescope. I have the laser collimator and the 2.5mm allen wrench. I could not get the allen wrench to move the secondary mirror. It seemed like it didn't even fit the hole to move the secondary mirror. HELP!!!

rccrashburn: Is the primary mirror parabolic or spherical?

drbobjr: Might I add a note of caution. When you turn on the laser collimator, point the open end of the tube at a wall and note if you can see the red dot on the wall. If you can, that means the beam is missing the secondary mirror entirely. Hold your hand near the end of the tube. Be VERY cognizant of where the beam exiting the tube before you look down it. Carefully look towards the primary mirror along the opposite edge of the tube from where the beam is exiting. Make sure your kids aren't running around too. Lasers can be dangerous tools. Avoid blinding children and astronomers!

stromytube: thank u ....check my pics from celestron 130slt https://www.facebook.com/spacebystromy

arianet4681: I know nothing about telescopes but your video made it so easy. Thank you so much

Jessie Young: Thanks for this useful video! Collimation doesn't look as bad as I thought!
I'm thinking about getting this as my first telescope. Are there any issues you have noticed with this telescope? I have heard the tripod is shaky. Have you found that to be an issue? Thanks!

Peter Murdoch: Thank you. An excellent tutorial that takes some of the mystery out of what can appear to be a complex thing!

Midblade: You'd think they would include this tool?

Ant H: you can take out primery mirror on 117eq the swrews then get a piece of paper draw around the mirror fold paper twice then cut corner of the paper place paper on mirror get a flettip pen put dot in the middle of mirror were the paper has a hole in it easy

aceman8448: i have a powerseeker 127eq... my primary mirror doesnt have the little circle.. how do i aim the laser on it?

John Patterson: The screws for aligning the secondary mirror on my new 130 SLT are extremely tight and I am afraid for force them to turn. Where they that way on your scope too?

Kevin Tinkler: Thank you for an excellent tutorial.

Irakli Kobiashvili: Thanks for great video. It was very useful.
I have exactly same telescope but I lost that screwdriver - tool you hold at 0:50
Please can you tell me its size and if it is 4 or 6 sided?
Thank you very much.

Russell W: Thank-you for such an easy and comprehensive tutorial. I was on the verge of giving up with the telescope.

oystersource: Brilliant! Thank you!

Anthony Weaver: Thank you for the nice tutorial.

jorgelawes: It's called a hex key but we refer to it as an allen wrench more often.

Leslie Boom: Amazing tutorial. Just got this telescope for christmas. :-)

Erzfreund Der Dritte: Dankeschön (:

Simon Henshaw: Simply brilliant!!! Many thanks for this super easy collimation tutorial, my kids and I can now look forward to a great Autumn and Winter's star gazing (through our newly collimated NexStar 130SLT :-) )
