Thanks, I'll try it.I didn't think at that but it seems simple and efficient
I was now going to try to use a laser (I found some kind of small laser for pointing)
I think this should generate a paralel light beam
My ideea is to point the laser to a wall and obtain a small light point and try to use this for calibrating. Or maybe an ideea could be to use it directly to the telescope but I'm affraid it could be dangerous (even is a small laser) if I foucus it by mistake.
What do you think?
So I'll try your method and my method but indirectly (with the wall)
