3 or 6 screws

When chas and I were catching up and I mentioned the collimation issue with Millie's RC 'scope, he said he thought even the 8" had collimation screws for the primary. Really. Dietmar had told me the 10" did but not the 8.

According to the image I found on the OptCorp site, that is the case.

So, that's good news, in that aligning the 'scope is easy (er, easier).

But when I actually read the documentation, it shows that there are 3 more screws on the rear cell.

Ah ha. Chas was right!
