Well, It's no real surprise. My XT6 is out of culmination. I have suspected it since my last viewing of Jupiter, and I guess it didn't exactly happen over night. I'm headed to Florida with a Refractor, so I don't have time to deal with it right now. When I return home, I have a little dust cap with a hole in the center and a shiny inside surface, that Orion provided me with to culminate the scope. It certainly works well enough for me to ascertain that I am out of sorts to begin with. After viewing videos on youtube, Orion went up another notch in my book for putting a little ring on the primary mirror for me. I wasn't looking forward to that procedure. I would like to ask my fellow AC skywatchers what they prefer for this procedure. I have heard of four methods: Star culminating Cheshire Culminating Using a laser culminator Using the pinhole cap with the shiny backside. Thanks in advance.
