Farpoint Knob/Spring Kit – Meade 12 Inch LightBridge (pre 2008 with M7 screws)
Upgrade standard telescope primary mirror collimation springs and collimation knobs with Farpoint Knob/Spring Kit – Meade 12 Inch LightBridge (pre 2008 with M7 threads). These replacement springs are many times stiffer than the stock springs and drastically improve the collimation retention of telescopes. Three 1.5″ diameter knobs are included with the kit. The knobs are machined from aluminum, knurled and anodized blue.
When new Farpoint springs are installed, there is no longer a need for the standard collimation locking screws. They may be loosened all the way or removed completely.
Compatible with pre-2008 Meade 12″ LightBridge telescopes and many other similar Dobsonians.
