Celestron 1.25" Cheshire Collimating Eyepiece for Newtonian Refle
Eyepiece worked fine once I figured out how to use it. The included instructions were a little vague to me, but I found some at Sky & Telescope.com. Product arrived within the promised time-frame, and was well packaged and in excellent condition...

great tool
I was able to use this eyepiece to align a focuser that was out of alignment.
I thought I had to collimate the lenses but this eyepiece saved me the extra effort.

Agena Astro Cheshire
Well made with easy to follow instruction. This product made it simple to collimate my f/3.6 Schmidt-Newtonian reflector.

Perfect in every way
Very elegant design. I wear glasses (VERY near-sighted) and was concerned that I would not be able to see the double cross-hairs. The integrated focus made this a non-issue.

this Cheshire device is better than using a laser collimator

Works very well, the reflection
Works very well, the reflection is clear and well centered. I found that the crosshairs do get in the way, but they're very easy to remove by unscrewing the ring that carries them.

Disappointed as a finder eyepiece
I purchased this eyepiece to use in my finders that use interchangeable 1.25 inch eyepieces. I have used it three nights under dark skies. Each night, I gave up and used another eyepiece. Finders are fast, F/4 is typical, i have three, F/3.75, F/4...

Excellent product at good price
I bought this eyepiece for double star observing. It’s good optically and the scales are useful. Batteries are included. I agree with the comments that it is a bit bright when fully dimmed. I did buy the top cap from Agena.

Versatile EP
Not only is it great as a finder eyepiece, but it’s a great “go to” EP as well. I use it quite a bit because of its wide field and longer relief. A good item to add to the EP arsenal at a reasonable price.

I like it a lot!
This eyepiece works pretty good. Great for lining up Celestron AVX 8” HD telescope. Only complaints are eye piece is not super sharp and field of view is not as broad as some of my eyepieces; however, I use it mostly just to align telescope. I woul...

I own three of them
I am an instrument builder, my current project is a classic spectroscope. It required illumination of the cross hair reticle and a back light for the slit jaws. I looked around but when I found the Agena and the references to the tap drill and tap so...

A fine illuminator. I have a very nice reticle eyepiece (EP) that I needed an illuminator for, and several other illuminated EPs. I was able to take the other illuminators off and compare things and this one looked like the one that would fit. It doe...

A Fine High Precision 9mm Illuminated Centering Eyepiece!
I purchased the Meade Plossl 9mm Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece to employ it is as a high precision tool for centering alignment stars on my GoTo/PushTo mounts. Since there is no factory preset to know when the crosshairs are exactly centered, you have...

Agena reticle illuminator
Fits well in Orion 20mm Illuminated Centering Telescope Eyepiece (#08239). Doesn't fit Celestron (RACI) Illuminated Finder and Orion Illuminated Finder Scope witch I own (they are after all not in list of tested reticle eyepieces). Good quality ...

Crissaim Illuminated Reticle
This reticle significantly improved my three star alignments. Only problem is illumination brightness adjustment is not smoothly variable low to brighter.
