Altair v2 Laser collimator for Newtonians & Dobsonians
We recommend you purchase the Altair 2" to 1.25" Self-Centering Adapter (code AA-SCA-2-125) with this item. Normal pushfit accessories have clamps, which slightly alter the centration of the collimator and eyepiece each time you use them, because they create uneven pressure on one side of the eyepiece or accessories when tightened using the thumbscrews. By using the Altair Self Centering Adapter, your optical system remains centered after collimation, giving repeatable performance with 1.25" eyepieces of cameras such as webcams. Because it clamps evenly around the outside of the eyepiece using a compression ring system your 1.25" eyepieces (or CCD camera / webcam nosepieces) remain concentric to the collimator even when you swap them. Ideally, we recommend leaving the Self Centering Adapter in the telescope, for maximum repeatability.
