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.

Works well enough if you know how to use it

Theres no instructions with this, look on you tube and you'll see plenty on laser collumator but not too much if anything on this if you know how to use one of these, great if you are a newby like myself its guess work. Comes in a plastic bag without any protection caps for the ends. its a nice red anodized colour but i don't think you could call it premium. There are simular items at half the price, end cap protection and instructions elsewhere. The only time i've been dissapointed with flo's description of a product.

Quality!!

Amazingly made this cheshire. I'm a Newton user and need to fix the telescope and later on it must be collimated of course. Since I want to get the maximum out of this telescope I decided to go for a precision instrument. And so I was directed to this beautiful piece of equipment. I'll be doing my first collimation ever and therefore I wanted quality. Well, it is!

This was purchased to facilitate collimation of my Newtonian OTA. Fortunately I had read a review that warned against the use of a laser collimation tool that can fool the owner that their alignment is good. The quality of this tool is outstanding. It should last a lifetime and probably find use on many OTAs in the future. Best of all it is straightforward to use, although as I am new to this hobby , I watched a number of videos on the topic.

F4 Newtonian collimtion nightmare

I initially tried a cheap laser which was useless so after some investigating decided to use a Cheshire, so the one from FLO looked good and believe me it is, it's really well made in Britain pure quality everything about it is quality, and needless to say with the help of a eyepiece cap job done.

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.
