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 :-) )
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!
