Farpoint Astro has redesigned its 2-inch Cheshire Autocollimator with the goal of producing the finest Autocollimator available. The all-new model is precision crafted from sturdy machined, anodized aluminum and includes a rubber dust cap.
Successful use of this device requires that the reflector telescope to be adjusted has been previously aligned with basic collimation tools, such as a laser or sight tube and a standard Cheshire.
In other words, the Cheshire Autocollimator is designed to supplement, not replace, basic tools. Farpoint’s autocollimator is for the ﬁnal precision alignment adjustment to remove residual collimation errors.
