SCT Collimation without Tools: BOB'S KNOBS
It's easy . . . just grab a Bob's Knob and turn. You can even do it while looking through the eyepiece on most scopes. And you'll never drop that pesky little Allen wrench or screwdriver on your corrector plate, or in the grass again. Installation is a snap with included instructions, and you can undo the modification at any time.
In particular, this model:
Fits: All Meade 8 inch (20 cm) f/6.3 SCT versions (2080, LX10, LX50, LX100, LX200)
Knobs: Stainless steel, 12 mm (1/2 inch) diameter
Threads: Stainless steel
Note 1: Since the factory dust cover contacts the secondary housing when installed, additional clearance is needed to make room for the knobs. We provide a set of spacers that attach to the inside of the dust cover to move it slightly away from the secondary assembly. You can also press the center of the cover from the inside to contour it for additional clearance.
Installation instructions are available in English, Spanish, German, Italian and French.
