Starlight Instruments Howie Glatter Laser Collimator - 2" - 650 NanometerAll of the Howie Glatter Laser Collimators are powered by a CR123A lithium cell, which allows for approximately 40 hours of operation. All Laser Collimators use a solid state laser diode that does not fade or change with time and use and are factory-aligned to 15 arc-seconds providing 0.1-inch accuracy at a distance of 20 feet. Shock resistant to keep its alignment - even when dropped.
With a choice of either 650 nanometer or 635 nm wavelength. The two lasers have the same power output, but the 635 nm laser appears about two or three times brighter due to the human eye's sensitivity to the shorter wavelengths. The 635 nm laser diodes enables holographic collimation in brighter ambient light and work best suited If you intend to collimate in early twilight. The 650 nm laser is better suited if you plan on collimating in the dark.

This made collimation of my RC easy. Well... a lot easier I guess I should say.
Why did I buy a cheap laser collimator. Should have used the money to go towards the Howie Glatter. The Howie Gkatter rocks and makes collimation so much easier. OPT were great fast shipping from the US to Australia
Beautiful circle pattern !
have been very pleased with OPT in general. Very prompt and easy to deal with. There was an issue with the description of the item due to an unclear description on the website. OPT very graciously handled this to my complete satisfaction.
Very glad I bought this - made collimation of my 14" ATRC easy.
