The CATSEYETM collimation system and precision products provide cutting-edge passive-tool collimation technology for the Newtonian Observer. High-resolution, bright image queues and ease of use are the hallmarks of this uniquely engineered set of collimation tools for fast and easy alignment of scope optics DAY or NIGHT !What is the Catseye Infinity xlkp autocollimator collimation tool?
Catseye Infinity XLKP Autocollimator Collimation Tool: Newtonian astrograph telescope users can now confidently take autocollimator focuser-axis alignment to the next level of precision without the need of a focuser drawtube extension.How much does a Catseye autocollimator cost?
Enter the Catseye Infinity XLKP autocollimator collimation tool in four barrel-extension lengths ( Image 1 ): 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 inches ($154 to $184US). Additionally, all Catseye autocollimators are now enhanced with flat-black anodized barrels and identified with a handsome laser-engraved logo/Model graphic.How do I determine the correct autollimator length for collimation?
Collimation using a Catseye collimation tool is always done without a corrector/reducer component in the optical path. To ascertain the appropriate Extended-Body XLKP autollimator length to use, the primary mirror’s native focal plane location (prime focus) relative to the focuser must be determined.
