OK Marc, I'll look into it - probably down the track when I move onto a CCD imager.

What did the image analysis say about collimation? (Not that there can be any adjustment to the WO scope)

It's a bit off but I reckon it's the weight of the whole thing on the focuser. Usually nothing to do with the scope. Try to keep the focuser in as much as possible and add extension tubes to reach focus.
