Howie Glatter was an amateur astronomer, tinkerer and inventor who produced premium quality laser collimators, laser pointers and other fine telescope accessories. Howie was frequently seen at star parties all across the USA and elsewhere throughout the world. Sadly we lost Howie in the Spring of 2017, and he will be missed by those of us who knew him.
Starlight Instruments, maker of the famous Feather Touch Focuser, had been a subcontractor to Howie Glatter. As of the Fall of 2017, Starlight Instruments was ramping up production of Glatter laser collimators for delivery later in the year. We anticipate these products becoming available in the order of their historical popularity, starting with the 2-inch collimators.
