Jim Fly's collimation tools

To collimate the ASA 10" /2.2 I orderd the "Blackcat" Chesire and "Infinity II" Autocollimator from Jim Fly (

Using both tools - and a home built sight tube - I was able to collimate the telescope "near perfect" in short time, as the Autocollimator displays. Hope this will be visible on the next images!
