Orion Skyview 8 Collimation Problem

I would like to talk with someone who has successfully collimated an Orion Skyview 8 with the Orion collimator(non laser). I am having a hard time getting things to lined up through the collimating eyepiece. This is a very fast scope(f4) and from what I have heard is hard to collimate. I can send pictures via email of what I am seeing. Need help!!! Orion tech support has not been helpful.
