RC8 collimating frustration

Hi All,

I have put together an instruction set on how I collimate my RC8, if anyone is interested.
It also covers some adapters that are required and where to get them.

Download the PDF if you wish. the file is about 51Mb.

Great write-up, Robin.
Very scary, though. It's made me feel almost on the verge of trying to sell my CF RC08 - just too much trouble.
