This collimating eyepiece is a combination of a sighting tube and Cheshire eyepiece. The sighting tube’s narrow field of view and crosshairs provide a centering reference for the telescope’s optical elements. A reflective target face (set at 45 degrees to the illuminating hole) makes it easier to collimate the primary mirror.

As as a complete beginner I contacted Flo for advice on alignment of my telescope. They were very prompt & very helpful with their replies, suggesting the Cheshire collimator. Having read a lot of their other customers reviews, I was happy these are trustworthy folks that don't pressure you for a sale. They kept me informed about despatch and delivery, which was really quick.
Highly recommended, will definitely be buying from them again.
Simple to use invaluable tool
