5 of 5 Great overall experience! March 19, 2022
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Kalamazoo, MI United States  
After extensive online researching, I settled on the Astrosystems 2" f/4.2+ Light Pipe as the best collimation tool for my 8" f5.9 Newtonian reflector. I decided to place my order with EyepiecesEtc.com., based on a plethora of very positive feedback, and have no regrets. Don communicated with me throughout the process and quickly shipped the well-packaged unit to my home. The directions Don supplied helped me through the collimation process and the Light Pipe performed brilliantly. Thanks Don! I look forward to doing business with you again in the future.

5 of 5 Upgraded from the 1.25" June 11, 2021
Reviewer: Steve Odendahl from Boulder, CO United States  
I've used the 1.25" for years, which came with my scope, in a 2" Feathertouch focuser for an 11" f5.4 Dob.  I had to use the 1.25" adapter, which inevitably has some slop.  The 2" Light Pipe is definitely an improvement.  After using it, the 2" autocollimator I bought showed very little error.  Very helpful instructions from Don, too!

5 of 5 Solid April 23, 2021
Reviewer: Jim Howerton from Hillsborough, NC United States  
This is a solid tool that helped me get my collimation issues under control on my 8" Dobson. By solid I am not only referring to the build quality, which is quite good, but also to the fact that this helped me focus on lining up everything in concentric circles as viewed through the Light Pipe Sight Tube/Cheshire Combo. I had been using a 1.25" Cheshire that had a crosshair that was off a good bit so the precision in this one was a huge improvement. The directions are clear but fairly detailed, so I would recommend a thorough reading before you collimate for the first time using it.

My experience with EyepiecesEtc. was also very good, after placing the order I received a courteous email from Don thanking me for the order and letting me know when it would be shipped. The package arrived on time, so all in all a good purchase.
