Orion LaserMate Deluxe II Laser Collimator
The LaserMate Deluxe II Laser Collimator by Orion: With the LaserMate Deluxe II Laser Collimator, you will get dead-on alignment (a.k.a., collimation) of your reflector telescope's primary and secondary mirrors quickly and consistently. Its "rear-view" port has a bulls-eye target that lets you adjust your telescope's primary mirror while conveniently standing at the rear of the telescope, where the primary mirror adjustment screws are located. You just adjust the collimation knobs until the laser beam's red dot hits the bulls-eye, and then you are done and your telescope's optics are aligned!
This second-generation LaserMate Deluxe features an improved, all-aluminum housing with a wider, 3 mm barrel flange to ensure that the collimator seats squarely in the telescope's eyepiece holder - exactly parallel to the focuser's mechanical axis. This optimized housing design, combined with the highly accurate factory-set alignment of the laser within the housing, results in consistent pinpoint collimation with every use! Your properly collimated reflector telescope will serve up the sharpest, clearest views possible, night after night.
The LaserMate Deluxe II is ideal for use with any Newtonian reflector telescope, including Dobsonian reflectors and Newtonian astrographs. It works especially well on telescopes with focal ratios of f/5 or lower, where accurate collimation is even more crucial.
While many reflector telescopes are center-marked at the factory with a collimation target label, we include extra center-mark collimation targets with the Orion LaserMate Deluxe II (in case you have an unmarked mirror).
The Orion LaserMate Deluxe is compatible with any 1.25-inch telescope focuser or 2-inch focuser fitted with a 1.25-inch adapter. Measuring just 4 inches long, it fits easily in your favorite accessory case.
Includes one 3V CR2032 lithium battery.

Simplified My First Collimating
As an 80 year old beginner, I was at first reluctant to purchase a reflector telescope because of the mystery of collimating. It sounded too exacting for me to complete. An amateur astronomer friend said it is an exacting process and you will want to use a lazer. I purchased this Orion Collimator for its price and use as seen in an online demo. This tool and instructions simplified my first collimation and my new reflector telescope had improved images. It is a must have in my tool box.
Buy back of my 8 inch lx90
I was very happy with your crew that helped me out with my buy back and purchase of a new 10 inch light bridge. They were able to answer all questions which I had many. I do need some more accessory's and will be seeing you in the future.
Haven't had a chance to use it because the telescope is not out of alignment yet. It seems to be built tough kind of like some of my tactical flashlights on some of my rifles and pistols.
