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 :-) )
Freddy Acosta: Nice, I got this scope today. Will need to get me a Collimator tool asap.
David E: Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Happy star gazing, your friend from the other side of the pond.
kpmac1: Thanks so much for this video. I've had a 130 SLT for about 8 years and have NEVER collimated it because, although I had bought a regular collimation tool years ago, after reading and watching videos, I could never figure out how to do it correctly. I watched this video, got a laser collimator for $28 and was able to collimate my scope in about 3 minutes. Can't wait to see the improvement!
Andy Hull: Thanks for this! I just followed along and collimated my own SLT 130 that I've had for a three weeks. It was slightly out of collimation so now I'm itching to see if I notice any difference!
coope1999: Was really worried about doing this but after watching your video it looks really easy. Thanks!
Silvano de Gennaro: I have an SLT 114 and I used exactly the same cheshire laser as you, but I get a blurred large dot on the primary lens, like if the laser had gone out of focus. Of course the laser is OK when projected directly on the wall, so it must be the secondary lens that puts it out of focus, but I don't know why. When adjusting the primary, the red dot is reflected back to the target very large (as big as the whole target) and very blurred. Any idea why?
