The essential accessory for anyone owning a Newtonian telescope.

This premium combined Cheshire Collimator with Sight Tube is manufactured for us here in the UK to a very high standard. Beautifully machined and anodised with a clearly etched cross on the target face and a precisely centred wire reticle.

The sighting tube’s narrow field of view and crosshairs provide a centring reference for the telescope’s optical elements. The Cheshire eyepiece has a means of providing illumination to a target face (set at 45 degrees to the illuminating hole) that will be used to collimate the primary mirror.

Q1. I have a Celestron 114EQ short. This has a lens at the end of the focusing tube. I take it that to collimate this you would need to remove this lens?

Yes - this lens will need to be removed before collimation.

Good for longer than about F5.5

This is a nicely made bit of kit, BUT only for longer scopes. with my F5.0 scope you can't quite see the whole of the primary mirror through it.

Got one for Xmas due to frustration with laser collimators. Very easy to use and the cross on the mirror of the cheshire makes alignment very accurate.

I bought this with my Skywatcher Skyliner 200P telescope. Delivered 2 days after ordering (I ordered on a Sunday) by First Class post. The Premium Cheshire Collimating Eyepiece is easy to use, a nice colour and of excellent build quality. Most importantly it does exactly what it's supposed to without fault.

The ONLY thing I would say is that it came in a simple resealable plastic pouch with no instructions, documentation, anything. I thought this was somewhat strange and made it feel a little like an incomplete package, but this alone isn't enough to demote it to 4 stars, so I give it the full 5.

High quality Cheshire. Much better than Celestron/Skywatcher Cheshire, which I also have

Surprisingly easy to use

I became disenchanted with my old laser collimator (not sourced from FLO) and decided to try out the tried and trusted cheshire collimator method.
After a minimal amount of reading up on collimation (and with a bit of time and patience) I found this a marvellous bit of kit.
Decided to spend a few extra quid on the "premium" model as I liked the colour!
