      4.0 Chesire plus sight tube


      Solidly built, good price


      No instruction manual provided


      This cheshire+sight-tube is nicely constructed, and reasonably priced. It appears from photos on the suppliers websites that it's identical to the Orion version which is a little more expensive. The only drawback of the Antares version is that it doesn't come with an instruction manual, and hence can be confusing to use at first. But note that you can download the instruction manual for the Orion collimating eyepiece from their website, plus there are plenty of books that explain collimation.
