That image is close to perfect. You would never see any funny stars even with a 4 foot wide print.
So my next outing will be to tighten everything up. That includes the adapters and the screws on the flanges for the nightcrawler.
Then I will start looking.
1) Take images at different points in the sky to see if things shift.
2) If not then attempt to adjust the tilt.
I guess I should attempt this before returning the scope. If I do send the scope, then it will wait until March when I switch scopes to my galaxy scope.
