The Catseye TriplePack Collimation kit offers the same 2" Infinity XLKP Autocollimator as supplied with the ComboSet but, in place of the Telecat XL or XLS combined sight-tube/Cheshire, it includes a separate 2" BlackCat XL Cheshire and 2" TeleTube XL or XLS sight-tube.
The more compact Cheshire offers greater convenience and slightly brighter visibility at night.
Collimating a Newtonian Telescope
Ordering is easy:
1. Select XLKP (with longer sight-tube) for Newtonian telescopes with f-ratios f3.5-6 or XLSKP for f-ratios f3-5
2. Select the type of template (personal preference) triangle or hotspot pattern (similar to the radioactive symbol).
3. Select Red or White (personal preference) centre-triangles in either 3/16" (most popular) or larger 1/4" inch (better when used with a barlowed laser) sizes. A new Hotspot pattern is also available that is yellow or white and similar in shape to the radioactive symbol (personal preference).
