Focus Scientific

Red Dot Finderscope

Are you suffering with a 5x24 toy finder? Adjustments not precise enough? Can't see the black crosshairs in the dark? It's definitely time for an upgrade.

With a Red Dot Finder, you'll zero in on the correct area of a constellation and find bright stars faster. Furthermore, the image will be upright and correct - the way a finder should be for novices.

A red glowing spot is projected onto the glass at infinity. When you look through the glass, you focus on the stars, which are also at infinity. The result: you see a visible red spot super-imposed over the star field.

The convenient dovetail mount is compatible with scopes from Sky-Watcher, Celestron, Orion, GC, Vixen and more. For those scopes that lack the female dovetail mount, we sell two styles of finder dovetail mounts. Please inquire for more information.
