This is why you shouldn't rely solely on the laser collimator to check your Newtonian or Dobsonian's collimation. The other night, I spent an hour or two getting my scope precisely aligned using a Cheshire collimation tool. Just out of curiosity, I inserted the laser collimator in the focuser drawtube and this is what I see...
The laser dot should be pointed precisely in the center dot of the primary mirror. At first, I thought I had not collimated my scope very well, but when I put the Cheshire back in, everything was dead on. And the Cheshire does not lie. The reason the laser is so far off is because the laser itself is not collimated very well (or at all) from the factory. The laser is also prone to huge errors due to mechanical slop in the focuser and elsewhere. The Cheshire method is much more reliable, as this image proves.
NOTE: I have since added a tutorial on how to fix this issue!
