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.

This really is a pleasure to use and an essential kit for Newtonian owners. I have played with many other Cheshire variants but none come close to this. The only downside is a fairly aggressive price point for what is a very basic manufacture. I would certainly buy it again but my hip pocket nerve did feel the pain.
Well made, easy to use, great service

Great service again from FLO, thank you.
This piece of equipment looks good, feels rugged and works very well.
I've never collimated a telescope before - and no instructions are provided of note, however 20 mins of online research / watching a couple of youtube videos made it straightforward.

Great job team FLO. Looks great in the astro tool collection too.

Very well made . All you need forget lasers
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.

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!

Premium Cheshire Eyepiece

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.
