        Comments about HOTECH 2 Inch SCA Laser Collimator for Newtonian Telescopes:

        I've been using the Orion laser collimator for my XT10g and it works well but this is a much more refined and accurate collimator. It's very easy to use and the laser point is smaller and much more clear of a circle if that makes any sense. With my previous collimator the circle seemed to be part oval and the edges of the dot weren't that clear where as this one is very clear. I'm very happy with this collimator, a must have tool to keep your dob tuned. Highly recommended.

          when it comes to collimation it is not an easy task but with the HoTech SCA no problem once collimated mark the location for a SCT or for a newtonian just center the laser on the target and you are done makes it east fast and over with.

          Comments about HOTECH 2 Inch SCA Laser Collimator for Newtonian Telescopes:

          I've used the traditional manual cross hair collimating tool to collimate my 12.5 f/5 Dobs and was always frustrated by the amount of slop there is between the focuser tube and the collimating tool when used.
          There was no way possible to get a true collimating because the tool would be tilted to one side of the focuser tube when you would tighten the screws to secure it in place.

          With the HoTech Laser it's self centering with no slop!

          Well worth the money and is easy to use.
