ASA Laser Collimator Set

The ASA Laser Collimator Set is the ASA-recommended Laser Collimator Tool, which has proven to be an optimal tool for use when collimating their astrographs. This is a self-contained laser light source in a precision made aluminum barrel, which perfectly fits into a barrel adapter for a 2" OD eyepiece. This Laser Collimator Set by ASA is a Howie Glatter precision product.

The beam from all red diode lasers used in collimators is fuzzy-edged and elliptical in cross-section. When collimating, you sometimes must judge the location of the center of the spot by visual means. To improve collimating precision, the collimator tool has a removable accessory plastic aperture stop having a 1mm hole, which push-fits into the laser aperture. It produces a tiny, circular beam impact which allows more accurate alignment. With the stop inserted, the beam impact at a distance of one meter or more looks like a star diffraction pattern, with a central dot surrounded by diffraction rings. The surrounding rings can help you to center the beam very accurately.
