Ed127 numbers in CCD Inspector

Could anyone with an ED127 who has some nice star-rich images run it through CCD Inspector and let me know what sort of numbers you're getting. I seme to have a lot of curvature, tilt and collimation errors in the first images with my new one and I'd appreciate having something to benchmark against.

Some old ccd inspector results from my 127ED before changing the focuser to a Ml, oh and I had to LASER align my focuser to the the OTA as well.

FWIW.

While I'll stay out of the fray, a comment like that might come back to bite you. Come to think of it, I'm struggling to think why the comment was even made.
