Baader Sky Surfer III Red Dot Finder w/ 3 Brackets

Baader Sky Surfer III Red Dot Reflex Finder

Are you ready to experience the difference Baader Planetarium makes in an affordable red dot reflex finder sight? The take a look at the Sky Surfer III... Featuring an extra-large 30mm non-magnified optics window, taking aim in light polluted conditions or on a dim field of stars has never been easier. Thanks to Baader Planetarium's own optimized anti-reflection coatings, the projected red dot image on the screen stays razor shrp and the variable intensity adjustment controls puts you in command. The extra-long lens housing acts as its own dew shield, too!

Baader understands all telescopes are different and most astronomers own more than one.... That's why three seperate base plates are included. The shorter fits large aperture telescopes well, while the longer, taller version works with smaller optical tubes and even fits most standard SCT mounting holes. For those that own Vixen-compatible dovetails, your bracket is also included. Now there's no need to buy additonal mounting plates for your imported or extra telescopes when the Sky Surfer III includes them for you! Simply mount the base to your scope using the supplied hardware - many models already have the correct drilled holes, or you may use the included double sided tape. Just slide the Baader Planetarium Sky Surfer III into place and secure with the dovetail screws. Align the Sky Surfer to your telescope's optics by using the knurled alt-az knobs, select your brightness level and head for the stars!

Baader is better!

Great! Much easier to use than my other finder scopes!

Good enough for my use.

Put on my Nikon spotting scope for moon and planet viewing. Easy dialing in and holds adjustment. Just put the red dot on what you want to see and there it is. Right in the middle of your view. Works for daytime use also. It’s a keeper. (I did use another finder's rail with the zip tie trick)

Baader Sky Surfer

this is the best finder I’ve used and I’ve had several for the 4 scopes I own/built. I now have two Sky Surfers, the lack of 1 star is because one of them has a short in the dial that turns the unit on, but if I give it a flick or a tap it works fine. The finder window is excellent and it is neither heavy nor too tall. A very good unit

Great Product

I bought this to replace the Tele-vue Quik Point Bino Finder I was using for years. No need for tools to collimate or work the brightness control. The red dot is very easy to see. It comes with a bino bracket for use on your tripod. If you are looking for a finder for your binos, this is it.

A superior red-dot finder

Much better quality and easier to use than the RDF that came with my scope, and at an affordable price.


It does what it supposed to and has a wide variety of mounts. Best I've seen to fit anything.
