Hi Labros
Paula's guides she has mentioned are excellent. You will find the secondary has 4 screws. One in the middle moves the mirror up and down the tube, while the 3 on the outside have dual functions. 1 is to lock the seconday in place and 2 is to adjust the tilt.
Adjusting these will not hurt your scope and you can always adjust again. The one thing to be VERY careful of if you are winding the centre screw so the secondary is moving down the tube (ie towards the main mirror) hold onto it as you do not want it to fall off. Also have the tube horizontal so if anything does get dropped, it doesn't end up falling your primary!
