5 of 5 An Excellent Collimation Tool October 16, 2020
Reviewer: Sol Robbins from Northeast New Jersey  
I am not new to collimating telescopes and have used a variety of sight tube/cheshire alignment tools with both reflector and refractor telescopes. The Astrosystems Light Pipe is superior to my existing tools. This longer tube length and the way a light source can be pointed into the sight path is quite forgiving as compared to having light reflect off a 45 degree angled piece of metal, which can be quirky. With the Light Pipe I have a more sensitive line of sight to accurately center both secondary mirror to the focuser and primary mirror to the secondary in a newtonian telescope, as well as focuser and star diagonal centering with a refractor's objective lens. Lastly, Don is wonderful to deal with. Some icing on the cake was that Don sent clear instructions on using the Light Pipe in PDF form. My small purchase of the Light Pipe proved its worth last night when with really good seeing conditions, I was getting great views of Mars at 338x with my 8" reflector. Thanks Don!

5 of 5 Astrosystems Light Pipe November 10, 2019
Reviewer: morgan from Arkansas  
I purchased the light pipe to supplement/enhance collimation of 12" Dobsonian previously equipped with laser collimator only, which is good to initially get you in the ball park.  Pipe works well to refine accuracy and get you to home plate, providing a consistent manual means of alignment opposed to the unknown calibration of electronics/lasers.

I also commend Don for his service as I caught him in midst of urban fire evacuations, which delayed shipment.  He readily communicated situation and shipped items as soon as possible, which arrived in good order and well packaged.
