Farpoint 2 Inch Collimation Kit with Carrying Case

Farpoint 2 Inch Collimation Kit with Carrying Case includes a 1.25″ and 2″ combo stepped barrel 650nm laser collimator plus 2″ cheshire in a sturdy red carrying case with fitted foam insert. These tools help align the optical axes of the mirrors of a Newtonian Reflector.

Farpoint 650nm Laser Collimator is precisely machined from a single piece of aluminum in a single machining step, resulting in perfect alignment.  Offering the smallest aperture of any other laser in the amateur astronomy market, Farpoint lasers feature an aperture (0.76mm or 30/1000 of an inch) producing less speckling and more precise reading of the laser beam’s position on the telescope mirror.

Features a 1.25″ and 2″ combo stepped barrel, an extra bright 650nm red laser, and superior EIGHT screw alignment arrangement ensuring that BOTH ends of the laser diode are held in place by two sets of directly opposing screws for precise and lasting alignment.

Farpoint 2″ Cheshire Collimator is a precision-machined, red anodized alignment tool for 2″ apertures, is practically indestructible, and requires no batteries.

A Cheshire eyepiece or Cheshire collimator consists of a peephole that is inserted into the telescope focuser in place of the eyepiece. Ambient light falls on the brightly painted oblique back of the peephole. Images of this bright surface are reflected by the mirrors or lenses of the telescope and can thus be seen by a person peering through the hole. A Cheshire eyepiece contains no lenses or other polished optical surfaces.

Kit also includes a mirror spotting template and triangle center spots to help simplify the process of center spotting a primary mirror.

    Very well made and packaged. Good support from Farpoint’s videos, and support by email. I’m not a collimation expert, but this kit seems to be just what I needed. As far as “blemished”, I can’t tell that anything is not perfect.

    Unpacked my Farpoint 2” Collimation Kit with case today. It came quickly and was well packed. Everything looked great. 3” scratch on the lid of the storage case, but that was the only blemish I have noticed so far. Took it to my ES 12” Truss Tube Dob to try it out. I have another less expensive but name brand laser collimator, but the Farpoint 2” Collimator kit just blew it away. Stability and repeatability were dead-on. I had struggled with collimating and being confident in the result in the past. I feel entirely different using the Farpoint and feel it was well worth the price.
