Glatter Tublug


Recommended Posts

They are very highly aclaimed apparently and I did look at one myself but went for a cheaper option in the end. There is no doubt the tublug and associated laser are fantastic quality but it was down to cost with me.

On a curious note, what was the cheaper option?

Oh and thanks for the reply.

hi Ally, the alternative I got was this http://www.firstlightoptics.com/collimation/baader-laser-collimator.html which I find great and simplicity to use.

You will need to make a collimation jig for it as for all lasers and it might be a little trickier than for a plain laser and this is an odd shape but nothing too difficult.

I purchased a Baader laser coli at the I.A.S. in May. Should it need collimating already? I would hope not.

How did you make a jig and where are the colli screws?

Hi Ally. I am reading up on this Baader collimator and apparently you don't collimate it. It doesn t fall out of collimation as far as i can gather. I will check some more cos this isn't sounding right

I had a Baader laser collimator that did loose it's collimation. It's quite awkward to make a jig for it as it's not symmetrical. After some fiddling I did manage to get it back into collimation again. I now use one of the low cost Revelation laser collimators, collimated to within and inch of it's life and used with a barlow which is a great technique for getting the primary tilt correct.

John. Did you have a mark III. If not, what version did you have and where were the collimation screws located as I have found nothing on the mark III one that I have. There are two small holes next to the laser aperture but there doesn't appear to be anything else.

I had the Mk II. The collimation hex screws were set into the heavily ridged section. On the Mk III this section is replaced by a rubber grip covered section - I guess the collimation screws could be under that rubber grip.

The rubber grip appears to be non-removeable. If you read the manual here http://www.telescope.bg/pdf/lasercolli.pdf (bottom page 3, top page 4), to me it appears to say that it does not require collimation as long as it is correctly inserted although I am a little unsure if my interpretation is correct.

Anyone got any thoughts on this or own personal experience of the Makrk III.

ps Ally, sorry for hijacking your thread a little but its all to do with your question about this Laser. hope you don't mind.

I have absolutely no objections to my thread being 'hijacked'. I would very much like an answer to this too. Hopefully someone can help.

Hi Ally. it appears the Baader mk III does not get collimated http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/189367-baader-mark-iii-laser-collimator-how-do-you-collimate-the-collimator/ and if it goes out you need to send it back to them for fixing. Wish i had known that from the out otherwise I might have thougt twice

You and me both. Nevermind, think I'll go with the Barlowed laser method.
