Presenting the BRESSER Laser collimator 31.7mm (1.25″)
The laser collimator makes aligning the mirrors of a Newtonian telescope simple, fast and precise. With the laser you collimate your optics even in the dark without additional accessories. Precisely machined it fits a 1,25″ focuser without tilting. The built-in projection area enables collimating even long focal length scopes in a breeze.
A laser collimator allows one to conveniently align the optics of a reflecting telescope. First, you use the laser collimator to determine whether or not the secondary mirror is pointing directly at the center of the primary mirror.
The first thing you do is shine the laser collimator through the tube of the telescope. It should be ensured that the laser collimator is firmly in place without any movement. This will ensure the proper alignment of the laser collimator without any flex or flop.
The laser beam will reflect off the secondary mirror and reach the primary mirror. A primary mirror usually has a small marking tape on it. The laser is aligned to hit this marker and the secondary mirror is then accordingly oriented and focused.
The collimation of a laser is done for a very good reason. It helps to theoretically align the focus of the image at infinity. This helps to increase the clarity of far-off celestial objects. Let’s consider a theoretical example that may explain why a laser is used to collimate in telescopes.
