Description

So, this is a bad example of an astro image :-(
My DSLR almost slipped out of the focuser during handling on it. Fortunately I holded my 70D in both hands as it began to move... a very bad feeling ;-)

Maybe I lost the collimation during that action or it was tilted in the focuser afterwards... but there is strong coma in the corners...

And maybe I need to loosen the primary mirror holder pads a bit more, since the stars have an strange shape in the right upper corner.

And I guess I moved the primary mirror upwards in secondary mirror direction while collimating the scope with all 3 collimating knobs...
Does anybody knows what happens if the primary mirror is a bit nearer to the secondary mirror (I'm talking about 2-3mm)???
