I did not publish a 100% sample with prior processing.

   I think my Celestron 750/6 needs to be adjusted.

Ah, I see.

"In the Celestron lens, the primary mirror is moved, sliding along the central baffle tube.  This is accomplished with an off axis screw system that can cause the mirror to slightly shift or wobble as it moves along the baffle tube.  This is known as mirror flop and can affect image quality if the primary mirror position becomes slightly out of collimation.  Unlike other mirror lenses, the Celestron secondary mirror has screws that allow you to adjust mirror collimation."

Evidence that this has happened? Other than apparently crappy pix? There are so many factors that can hurt IQ, that it might be worth testing with ideal gear, conditions and technique?
