Yes it would work but it's not worth the trouble considering that we are talking about a tilt, coming from the focuser, of something like 15 microns across the sensor. I bet the sensor alignment in the camera is not much better than that.
Not a worry considering that the theoretical depth of focus is well over 40 microns at f/7.7

Thanks to your posts Stefan I managed to find an led illumination method for for my collimation telescope project . Managed to collimate my Tak. Not perfect but much better and i can do another round after a star test.

Better do you think or is there something I am missing?

Not too hard with only one lense cell i suppose. The LED does change the world.

After and before images along with my T2 lense collimator frankenscope and reticle eyepiece projection.

Great work. It definitely looks better. These collimators should be more common.
