Farpoint 2 Inch Super Collimation Kit with Carrying Case
Farpoint 650nm Laser Collimator is precisely machined from a single piece of aluminum in a single machining step, resulting in perfect alignment. Offering the smallest aperture of any other laser in the amateur astronomy market, Farpoint lasers feature an aperture (0.76mm or 30/1000 of an inch) producing less speckling and more precise reading of the laser beam’s position on the telescope mirror.
Features a 1.25" and 2" combo stepped barrel, an extra bright 650nm red laser, and superior EIGHT screw alignment arrangement ensuring that BOTH ends of the laser diode are held in place by two sets of directly opposing screws for precise and lasting alignment.
Farpoint 2" Cheshire Collimator is a precision-machined, red anodized alignment tool for 2″ apertures, is practically indestructible, and requires no batteries.
A Cheshire eyepiece or Cheshire collimator consists of a peephole that is inserted into the telescope focuser in place of the eyepiece. Ambient light falls on the brightly painted oblique back of the peephole. Images of this bright surface are reflected by the mirrors or lenses of the telescope and can thus be seen by a person peering through the hole. A Cheshire eyepiece contains no lenses or other polished optical surfaces.
Farpoint 2"Autocollimator is our newly redesigned model and absolutely the finest Autocollimator on the market! Made from sturdy machined, anodized aluminum, creating the perfect tool for the ﬁnal precision telescope alignment adjustment step.
Kit also includes a mirror spotting template and triangle center spots to help simplify the process of center spotting a primary mirror.
Living in New Zealand, there are not many sources of good astro gear, and as a result, I have had a lot of trouble finding a good collimator for my Dobsonian. I ended up ordering this kit a few weeks ago, and in very short order (even considering the Covid-related transportation delays) the device reached me in NZ, and it literally took less than 5 minutes to get my Dob back into collimation. All I need now is a set of arm extensions so I can reach to the back of the Dob to make adjustments while looking through the eyepiece... ;-)
I just have to say that the phone service was off-the-charts awesome and the price was great. As well as the Speedy Delivery.Thanks again guys you made my day or is that night?😎 Greg
