The wifi-Aline from Rigel Systems enhances the accurate collimation of Dobsonian and Newtonian telescopes.
We recently heard from Rigel Systems’ Leon Palmer and he told us that, “We’ve updated our Aline – adding a 2” version and including retro-reflective mirror center spots… now even more a must for rich field and fast Newtonians & Dobsonians!”
He continued, “Look into your telescope through an Aline and you see a bright white circle surrounding the image of your eye’s pupil, making it easier to center the primary and secondary mirrors. Simple in design, Aline uses an ultra-reflective microprism retroreflector and the light gathered by your telescope to produce a brighter image than “classical” cheshires or “reflective” cheshires (which are retroreflector collimation eyepieces — not cheshires) that use less reflective microsphere retroreflectors.”
Enclosed with your Aline is a highly reflective mirror center spot 5/8” diameter, to update your mirror center spot for better visibility with your Aline during collimation, especially under low light levels.
