Product Details

  • The 9X50 RT Angle CI Illuminated Finderscope by Orion:

     

    Aiming a telescope is a joy when using the Orion 9x50 Illuminated Right-Angle CI Finder Scope thanks to its easy-to-see crosshairs, big 50 mm aperture, correct-image view and comfortable right-angle design.

    While many finder scopes employ black crosshairs which are difficult at best to see against a night sky background, this deluxe model of ours features an adjustable-brightness red LED illuminator so the double crosshairs can be seen easily at night for efficient centering of celestial targets in a telescope.

    The comfortable right-angle orientation of the finder scope eye lens eliminates the need to contort your neck and back around your telescope while aiming. The Orion 9x50 Illuminated Right-Angle CI Finder Scope is particularly useful for those who stargaze with a Dobsonian reflector telescope, since using a straight-through finder to aim a Dobsonian can be difficult. The finder's correct-image view makes it easy to point your telescope accurately, since the view in the finder scope will have the same orientation as the unaided eye.

    With moderate 9x power magnification and a wide 5-degree field of view, the fully coated Orion 9x50 Illuminated Right-Angle CI Finder Scope gives scale to small celestial objects as they pop out with a surprising amount of bright detail. The included finder bracket features a standard Orion dovetail foot and employs our popular spring-loaded X-Y adjustment design for simple calibration with any Orion telescope.

    Requires three SR-54 batteries for illuminator operation (batteries included).

    9x50 RT Angle Illuminated Finderscope

    I am a 66y/o beginner in astronomy; my Orion Newtonian 130st was a retirement gift. I am loving this new hobby. However, I was a Paramedic for 34 years and did finally develop some back and neck issues. We do pay to help you folks, lol. OK, the inline finder that came with OTA was difficult and uncomfortable to use. I found this new off-set finder scope and my whole viewing has remarkably changed for the better. I absolutely love it. Comfortable, easy to view and zeros in on objects for line in a flash. For us seniors, I can’t recommend a finder scope more than this one. Awesome field of view and the laser is a fun feature. It is a tad heavy, and I had to learn how to balance it, but once you get the hang of the increased weight, it’s a pleasant breeze to set up.

    Orion 9X50 RT Angle CI Illuminated Finderscope ... Sweet

    I love this finderscope, the double crosshair's are really nice. Illuminated I find them not to be too bright at all. The 9X50 mag and FOV works very well for me. This scope mounted right onto my Meade's ETX125 dovetail. Aligning it with the ETX125 was a breeze. I did rotate the illuminated eyepiece to have the on off illuminator to the finderscopes left side as my right eye is dominant. The scope came in focus. Only trouble I had was there were no batteries included. A email to OPT brought a quick response from Theresa wanting to send me the batteries. Since we were having day after day of snow I told her to included it in my next order in a week or so. As it was OPT sent them to me anyway. OPT did a price and shipping match, communication with Jesse working up to my order of several items was excellent. I would definitely recommend the Orion 9X50 RT Angle CI Illuminated Finderscope, and would buy it all over again. Shipping was fast and sent out the same day I ordered. OPT has all my business, A+++...
