About this product
With the LaserMate Deluxe II Laser Collimator, you will get dead-on alignment (a.k.a., collimation) of your reflector telescope's primary and secondary mirrors quickly and consistently. Its "rear-view" port has a bulls-eye target that lets you adjust the telescope's primary mirror while conveniently standing at the rear of the telescope, where the primary mirror adjustment screws are located. You just adjust the collimation knobs until the laser beam's red dot hits the bulls-eye, and then you're done and your telescope's optics are aligned!
This second-generation LaserMate Deluxe features an improved, all-aluminum housing with a wider, 3mm barrel flange to ensure that the collimator seats squarely in the telescope's eyepiece holder - exactly parallel to the focuser's mechanical axis. This optimized housing design, combined with the highly accurate factory-set alignment of the laser within the housing, results in consistently pinpoint collimation with every use! Your reflector telescope will serve up the sharpest, clearest views possible, night after night.
The LaserMate Deluxe II is ideal for use with any Newtonian reflector telescope, including Dobsonian reflectors and Newtonian astrographs. It works especially well on telescopes with focal ratios of f/5 or lower, for which accurate collimation is even more critical. While many reflector telescopes are center-marked at the factory with a collimation target label, we include extra center-mark collimation targets with the Orion LaserMate Deluxe II in case you have an unmarked mirror.
The Orion LaserMate Deluxe is compatible with any 1.25" telescope focuser or 2" focuser fitted with a 1.25" adapter. Measuring just 4" long, it fits easily in your favorite accessory case. Includes one 3V CR2032 lithium battery.
very good thingy
I have never used a laser collimator before, relying on the old fashioned manual method. Dead easy to use, just takes minutes to achieve alignment. Instructions easy, online videos too. Would recommend for Dob users
