I am in the process of trying to collimate my 8" dob project and purchased a laser tool to facillitate the process. I was able to get the laser dot to line up correctly, and then took the scope out last night for the first time. I noticed I was getting a soft image, so I went out of focus on a bright star and noticed the disk bending to the right forming a 'C' rather than an 'O' pattern. Below is similar to pattern:
The scope is showing collimated per the laser tool, but I know there must be an adjustment/alignment issue (so I'm confused at this point). Any advice?
Thanks in advance,
