Product Info

Manufacturer Description

The Celestron Cheshire Collimation Eyepiece is ideal for precise collimation of Newtonians and helpful for aligning Schmidt-Cassegrains. This special eyepiece fits into 1.25" focusers or diagonals.

Alignment is easy using the small opening on one end and thin cross hairs at the other end. The collimation eyepiece is more accurate than the simple Collimation Tool.

Product carries full 2 year Celestron factory limited warranty (within US/Canada only).

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      Eyepiece worked fine once I figured out how to use it. The included instructions were a little vague to me, but I found some at Sky & Telescope.com.

      Product arrived within the promised time-frame, and was well packaged and in excellent condition. Very happy with Agena Astro.

      4.0 Great for a quick check

      Pros:

      Simple to use

      Cons:

      none

      Comments:

      Works very well for a quick check, or minor adjustment. After I set up for the night as it's still light, I will check collimation with this eyepiece and make any small adjustments. If it is off too far then I would use a Tectron set up and some more time consuming adjustments.

      Have only had to do that once so this eyepiece keeps the optics in line longer for me. I just keep it in my eyecase and ready to go
