I should have said that I was trying Manual. I haven't really used the camera in Manual mode since I bought the camera, so maybe this is why I'm finding the photos are blurred. Also I don't really know what I'm doing in Manual. I did however set it to f/22 and changed the aperture accordingly until I thought the photo looked right on the LCD screen. I should look for a course of how to start taking photos in Manual.
I also took a few photos in P mode but they too where a little blurred/out of focus.
I'll try everything on here what people have said to try so far. Yes I have mirror lock-up.
What settings could/should I use in the house?
I had to look up 'collimation' on Google to see what it meant. I presume it means something to do with lines??
Could I take a big piece of paper/card and draw a grid, set the camera on a tripod and take a few photos to see if its still blurred?
I knew someone would ask this. I don't know what shutter speed it was, I cannot check now because I deleted my photos off the computer.
