Or a device that auto collimates the scope - how much time would that
and how much better would the images be on average across the field at
One possible way: one IR LED one side of the focuser. 3 photodiodes in
a ring, each straddling the edge of the shadow of the center marker, on
the opposite side. Some simple (or otherwise) electronics to drive 2
servos for collimation bolts.
Could perhaps be left on continuously for visual use...
