About this product

Model:  Prem_Cheshire

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.

Canít see how this does a better job than a basic collimating cap but perhaps Iím missing something. With no instructions provided I was left searching google and YouTube for how to use this, unfortunately I found numerous different ways of collimating which just confused matters, would be nice if the manufacturer gave their guidance

Elegant and very robust

I just received and tested this collimator. It coincides totally in the collimation with my old Cheshire Intes. This Premium Cheshire I see it very robust, effective and elegant. Very good.

Robust bit of kit

This is a very well built bit of equipment and has style as well as functionality. I have used it. My telescope required a bit of tweaking to be spot on. Images so far are crisp and clear so I am assuming it did it's job.

I would have given 5 stars if it came with even a tiny bit of info as to how to use it!!! Instruction leaflet please!!! Other than that - would highly recommend.

Great Premium Cheshire!

Built like a tank but it's just so delicate. The Cheshire is in a high quality all metal housing ,has just the right length to see what you need, and also might survive an asteroid impact!

My first Cheshire - and I'm glad I researched them.
Thursday, 6 September 2018  | 

I'll straight away admit that this is my first Cheshire Collimator, so I can't say I have any experience of any others.
I did research them however, and I noted that this "premium" model has a stepless barrel, so could be inserted over a wide range of lengths. This made it easy to regulate the space around my primary and secondary mirrors, to aid in their initial centering, (on my 10" Dobsonian).
The eventual view through the pinhole opening showing everything centred was very reassuring.
(Secondary edge, primary clips, primary centre spot, and Cheshire target hole).

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.
