Some sad news......


Recommended Posts

Just learned from the 'FLO' Facebook page of Howie Glatters passing today.


Howie was an astro pioneer, who made collimation tools for amateurs the world over.

I think his aim was to make  Newtonian collimation easy to understand, and to perform with easy to use precision tools and he succeeded totally.


I have one of his lasers and 'blugs' and they are just beautifully made, a pleasure to use.

I actually enjoy the collimation process now, rather than being scared of it.

FLO sell the whole range, and i can't recommend them enough.
