Product Details

  • 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.

Orion LaserMate Deluxe II Laser, a very useful tool....but....

upon using this laser tool I found a confounding issue of differing collimation while it was in various rotated positions. I then rotated the laser while looking at the primary spot and viewed a circular movement the size of a nickel so I made a V block and tested it on a wall about 20' away and sure enough it showed the same circular deviation. I then removed the label (don't do this if you intend to return it, this may void any warranty) and adjusted one of the allen key screws and brought the beam to rotational center. I then tried it on the scope and it worked perfectly, I also used it to Barlow collimated for a more accurate collimation, so it's a very good tool if it's aligned correctly hence 4 stars.

Orion LaserMate II, Easy to use Collimator from Orion

Love this tool which make's collimating a Newt,under 5 minutes. Make sure it sits perpendicular and vertical to the tube allowing gravity to hold it in place. Adjust secondary mirror, first!, then move on to Prime IF required. Repeat, for finer adjustments. For first time buyer's, you won't go wrong with OPT...One of the best!!!! Highly recommend.

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.
