5 of 5 Everything Went Smoothly August 16, 2021
Reviewer: Marc Popick from New York, NY United States  
I got introduced to astronomy by a good friend recently. His current equipment is being updated, so I decided to also start building my eyepiece collection and collimation tools. Don helped us out immeasurably by providing advice to make sure my experience is positive. Shipping was quick, as was all communication. Even when not asked, Don kept me updated on the whole process. I will be ordering from Don again.

4 of 5 Light Pipe Collimation tool July 16, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Roanoke, VA United States  
The Light Pipe Collimation tool arrived sans instructions. I informed Don and he sent the instructions via e-mail. My main complaint is the instructions. I am a complete and absolute novice at all things telescope. The instructions seem to require more knowledge of a telescope than I possess.

5 of 5 Great Service! January 21, 2021
Reviewer: Harry B. from Shawnee, KS United States  
After a lot of research on different collimation  tools for my dobsonian, I got in touch with EyepiecesEtc.com to ask some questions. Don was a huge help in choosing the right tool and provided additional instructions on proper collimation using a sight tube and cheshire. Highly recommend this store.

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!
