Review

Hello everyone! This will be a review of a laser collimation tool called the EZ Collimator. This laser collimator is made and sold by EZ Telescope.com.

I've had this piece of equipment for quite awhile now so I've really given it a fair test. Costing about the same amount of money that many lesser laser tools are sold for, this thing makes collimation about a two minute chore, once you have learned how to use it. This includes lining up the secondary.

Use as you would any other laser collimation tool, except for one difference. Once you get your secondary lined up, you will not have to have a helper, (or get up and down) you just look at the little window on the tool (while you make your adjustments from the back of the 'scope) and when the two dots overlay one another, you are done. It really could not be easier.

I highly recommend this tool to beginners and old pros alike. It has never been faster to get top performance out of your 'scope.

Hope at least some of you find this useful.
