Excellent Service Brilliant and very useful piece of equipment, made the job so much easier. A great service an communication from the team at Harrison’s as well. (11/05/2020) Kevin - Bristol
excellent value for money An excellent and useful piece of kit that should be re-used on a regular basis. (25/04/2020) - oxford
Very useful, and straightforward to use I bough this along with a Newtonian reflector. The instructions aren't very clear, but it's a doddle to use. Insert it in the eyepiece holder so you can see the slanting white face while you can reach the adjustment knobs. Switch it on and twiddle the knobs until the beam disappears back down centre (18/04/2020) Michael - Surrey
Very pleased with the service The item was just as described fairly quickly sent. (07/03/2020) Daniel davies - Merthyr Tydfil
Must have device Does what is says on the box. I had never used one before , nor aligned a mirror on a telescope but, having read the instructions, I was able to complete the very necessary alignment within a few minutes (03/12/2018) David - Devon
Invaluable beautiful accessory that is invaluable for any Newtonian telescope. Super easy to use and good quality. Fabulous service form Harrison Telescopes. (12/10/2018) Chris Brown - Lowestoft
Good for Dummies Took me a while to realise that the primary mirror when correct meant that the Red Led disappeared in the centre of the collimator when aligned, Der (15/06/2018) Ian - Birmingham, West Midlands
Sky-Watcher Laser Collimator By far, one of the best products for setting up my telescope I have bought to date. Can't fault it for accuracy and only took me only minutes to set up my telescope. (17/02/2018) Chris - Penicuik, Scotland
Excellent and time saving I tried using a Cheshire and with glasses and a long telescope with a primary mirror i couldnt quite reach i decided to give up and get the laser. This was so much easier and allows me to quickly check the its alignment with little time wasted. I wish i bought this first time around. (09/02/2018) Martin - Yorkshire
Definitely a 'must have' item This makes the job of collimating your reflector telescope as easy as 1-2-3, just slot it into the eyepiece holder and follow the instructions. I used mine to re-collimate my 8" Newtonian after taking it apart completely to carry out some modifications, and collimated it in less than 5 minutes (23/08/2017) Martin - Barnstaple
great service Very quick response, and everything was as expected. Now for a starry night... (19/05/2017) -
