    Orion Dovetail Base For Finderscope

    The Orion Dovetail Base For Finderscope is designed to accept any Orion finder scope bracket or EZ Finder reflex sight bracket. It's an ideal base for custom installation of a finder scope on telescopes not already equipped with a compatible base. The Orion Dovetail Base for Finder Scopes features a large thumbscrew lock to secure the finder scope bracket in place. Thanks to the size of the knurled thumbscrews, you can easily attach and detach your finder device, even when wearing heavy gloves.

    The Orion Dovetail Base for Finderscopes is designed for use on any telescope optical tube except for Schmidt-Cassegrain models. The dovetail base makes it easy to install a finder scope, or an additional finder, to any diameter refractor, reflector, Dobsonian reflector and Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope tubes. Includes mounting hardware.

    Measures 1.5" long by 1.1" wide, with a height of 0.75". Weighs 1.6 oz.

    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • Can I attach this to a Stellarvue hinged ring which has pre-drilled and threaded 1/4-20 holes ? If so, are there screws included and are they 1/4 -20 thread ? The hinged ring has a flat surface

      This base is not designed to fit on a StellarVue flat top hinged ring. The screws used with this are smaller than 1/4"-20 - using a pitch gauge and tap set, they appear to be M4x0.7 screws with matching nuts.

    • Does this headlamp have a separate switch for activating the green light mode or must you go through the white lights first which defeats the purpose for astronomy.

      Hello Philip, Thank you for your question. On this lamp, you must go through the white lights first before you get through to the green light.

    • Why is this base not recommended for use on Schmidt-Cassegrain OTA's? Is there another model that workd better or is recommended?
