5 of 5 Reliable Tool and Amazing Service November 24, 2022
Reviewer: Erik Tarbell from Fate, TX United States  
I bought this for my Apertura AD12 f/5, which came with a laser collimator that was way out of collimation. Instead of trying to fix that I decided to get a tool that would accurately collimate both the primary and secondary. I have been able to nail the collimation with this tool and my views are better than ever. This tool is very straightforward to use once you get it. Don also sends very clear instructions that I recommend you read a couple of times before it arrives.

I had a question that I sent to Don and he gave me a quick and awesome response that clearly demonstrated decades of experience and thinking which didn't just answer my question but helped me understand my instrument much better. I will certainly be buying from eyepiecesetc again.

Also, shipping was really fast!

5 of 5 Astrosystems combination tool, newt collimation December 19, 2021
Reviewer: Charles Snell from White Rock, NM United States  
This tool works perfectly and is easier to use than my Celestron cheshire collimator. I will be using it at home and taking it along with my 1-1/4" Glatter collimator with TuBlug when I go on vacation. Ideal for my 10" Teleport and 10" Teeter's f/5. Have not tried it yet with my Starmaster f/4.5 but it should work well with that.

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.
