Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
can this ítem be attached to Celestron Astromaster 70 telescoe

1. Can the red dot finderscope be attached to an 11" Celestron NextStar GPS OTA in lieu of or in addition to, the standard Celestron 9 X 50mm finderscope? 2. Can the red dot finderscope be attached using the same OTA mounting holes?
Yes to both questions. This RDF includes a quick release baseplate adapter that will connect to the same screws used to hold on the 9x50mm finder bracket.
Can this item be attached to Celestron Skymaster 20X80 binoculars?

Is the pic accurate... is this the model with celestron written on side and the slide side to side to turn on off or is it the model with the wheel to turn on off? Thanks

Will the Star Pointer red dot finder fit on a Meade LX200?
As long as you use the correct base of the ones provided, it will be able to mount to your scope.
