AC296 Alignmate Classic Bubble-level and compass alignment aid

£22.99 including UK P&P

The Alignmate solves your Meade DS/ETX/LX alignment hassles and allows you to find due north and get a perfect level of your telescope tube in seconds.

Simply pop the Alignmate into the eyepiece holder and rotate the instrument until the north indicator on the compass lines up with the telescope tube, make a small local adjustment for your true north deviation, then lock the azimuth axis and simply flip the Alignmate over to reveal the bubble and level the tube perfectly every time. Lock the axis and it's done - you are ready to hit enter on the Autostar and make a perfect alignment! Not only does the Alignmate take all the fuss out of aligning your Meade but it makes a stylish and effective dust plug too!

The Alignmate (AC296) comprises a large bubble level screw mounted on one side of a solid precision-turned aluminium barrel, and at the other end is a recessed quality oil-damped compass
