About this product

Model:  rigel-aline
Part Number:  ALINE

The Rigel Aline Collimation cap offers a convenient and affordable means of collimating a Newtonian telescope.

If you look down the focuser drawtube, it is hard to tell where to place your eye. If you look Into your telescope through an Aline, you will see a bright white circle surrounding your eye's pupil, making it easier to centre the primary and secondary mirrors.

It fits firmly into your focuser's 1.25" eyepiece holder and features a convenient, highly reflective inner surface.

Includes instructions.

This is a must if you need to collimate your telescope . Small and very simple to use . I have a laser collimator but find this much easier and accurate. Thanks FLO

It helps collimating my StellaLyra 12 dob. It fits tight that is good. It is not made of the best plastic material but it does what it is supposed to do.

Easy to use for collimating a telescope. The instructions that came with it could have been better, especially for a novice user. Service from FLO was excellent. Easy to order and delivery was very fast (quicker than anticipated).

It works, good value.

The first reflector I've owned arrived slightly out of collimation.
Not surprised given the distance it's travelled.
Using this cap, and online tutorials, I've made adjustments to both the primary and secondary mirrors to align them.
Other devices may be quicker, but I've yet to try them.

Great experience with FLO and this collimation cap. As a beginner I was a little hesitant about collimation. But after watching "Small optics " video on YouTube. And using this collimation cap I was impressed how easy it was. Less than five minutes it was done. And super fast delivery thanks to FLO.

Well made little gadget. The centre peephole was exactly positioned, and the mirrored inside surface makes adjustment easier. I bought this mainly to accurately position the secondary mirror of my Newtonian, then use a Cheshire to complete the collimation adjustments. Secondary mirror adjustment was straight forward, and I was able to see everything clearly through the peephole in spite of wearing spectacles. I then had a go at adjusting the primary mirror, and that was equally straightforward. When I checked it using the Cheshire the collimation appeared more or less spot-on. In many ways I found this collimation cap easier to use than a Cheshire, and certainly worth the money.
