Description

Explore Scientific 8x50 illuminated finder scope produces images that are right-side-up and left-to-right corrected views, which makes it easier to find objects in the sky.


 
The Explore 8 X 50 Straight-Thru Erect Image Illuminated Finder Scope, with its scale markings and open center, not only helps you center objects precisely, but gives a reference of the exact field of view in degrees. The deep red illumination can be adjusted to just the right brightness. The eyepiece has comfortable eye relief and produces a 6° field of view. Both the eyepiece and the main objective can be focused independently so that you can obtain perfect focus for your eyes. The straight-thru finderscope weights just under a pound (15.9 oz), and measures 8.5" x 2.45" x 2.25".
 

Finderscope comes complete with its own dual-ring quick release finder bracket and batteries for the illuminator.

 


Precision Optics
 
Explore Scientific's Finder Scope optics are made with the same precision and care as our telescopes and eyepieces. The optics are multi-coated to produce maximum contrast, further enhancing their ability to find faint objects in the night sky.
 
Each Explore Scientific Correct-Image Finder Scope is identified with its own serial number and carries the Explore STAR Warranty.

 


Quality Erecting Prisms
 
The erecting prisms of the Explore Scientific Correct Image Finder Scopes are precision ground and polished to produce bright, high-resolution images.

 


Quick Release Bracket
 
The quick-release design of the Explore Scientific finderscope bracket allows you to attach the finder to your telescope quickly and easily. The dual rings securing your finder have three point adjustment knobs.

 


Illuminated Reticle Scale Markings
 
The scale markings and open center of the 8 X 50 Straight-Thru Correct Image Finder allows you to measure distances and easily center an object in the field of view. The brightness of the reticle can be adjusted, which is nice when you are searching for fainter objects.

 


Variable Illuminator
 
The illuminator screws into the end if the finder and can be removed easily to change batteries. The deep red illumination can be adjusted for brightness.

    Comments about Explore Scientific 8x50 Finderscope with Illuminated Reticle:

    This used to be included, as was the hard carry case, with the Mak/Newt by Explore Scientific. I wanted the matching finder for the scope. I was lucky enough to get one with the case. Too bad they are cutting some corners but I feel that ES products are still a good buy with excellent quality at this price point.
