About the Explore Scientific 8x50 Correct Image Illuminated Reticle Finder Scope...

It seems to us that finder scopes or viewfinders for telescopes are often built and designed as somewhat of an afterthought. The Explore Scientific 8x50 Correct Image Illuminated Reticle Finder Scope is a worthy optical instrument in its own right. With individual objective and eyepiece focus adjustments, a long eye-relief eyepiece, a precision-etched open circle illuminated reticle (that will not hide the star that you center), and fully multi-coated optics you'''ll effortlessly find and center objects with any telescope that it is used on.

 

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 degree 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".
