Optical alignment telescopes[edit | edit source]

The optical alignment telescope is an accurate instrument used for aligning objects on a reference line known by the optical axis, or by the line of site.

The alignment telescope mounting is precisely related to its optical axis and is uniquely designed for aligning boreholes, bearings, and more.

Alignment telescopes are very sturdy. Its stainless steel construction will handle rough working conditions and maintain its precise specifications.
