Stellarvue F80 - 80mm Finder with 23mm Reticle Eyepiece - Matte BlackAre you ready for this top of the line finder scope? It's a telescope on its own! The Stellarvue F80M 13X80 Finder Scope weighs in at only 2.5 pounds, that gives you a full 80mm of aperture in a finder that is half the weight of an 80mm telescope.

The Stellarvue F80M 13X80 Finder Scope starts with a high precision, fully multi-coated 80mm clear aperture F4 objective. Move back into the internally baffled tube to stop internal reflections. At the end is a rotating back to allow for adjustable eyepiece positioning comfort, a fully multi-coated correct image erecting prism, and 1.25" helical focuser. But that's not all... The Stellarvue F80M 13X80 Finder Scope also comes with an E3023R fully multi-coated eyepiece with a focusing glass reticule that is easier to see than fine crosshair reticules.

hi there what additional items would i need to mount this finder scope onto a celestron cgem 9.25 hd telescope. regards chris murphy JP
You would need the SV-R80S bracket to attach this finder to any SCT between 8-14" http://www.optcorp.com/sv-r80s-r80s-80mm-finder-rings-for-sct.html.
Two questions: 1. Does the scope come with a tripod mounting socket? 2. Is it compatible with binoviewers?
Unfortunately, no on both counts. You will need to purchase an optional set of rings to mount this finder on top of your telescope (or arguably a camera tripod). Additionally, binoviewers will not reach focus with this scope as it was designed as a find
Why was this mount returned?
The customer in this case decided that they wanted a higher capacity mount as the scope they wanted to use was too heavy for the CEM60.
Can this finder be mounted on a Celestron 6SE? If so, what mounting accessories would I need to purchase? Thanks
Yes you can. You will need to replace the shoe that comes with the scope. There are a couple of things you will have to get along with the finder to make if work on your C6. Frist is a OS-VFS shown in the link below. http://www.optcorp.com/os-vfs-vixen
Can this scope be used as a guide scope? And what would be issues with if you can? Is the focal length 300mm? What is the f stop? I have a sct scope. I was looking at the rings for a sct. Can that set of rings be put on a vixen mount for a grab and go?
Yes, you can use this as a guide scope, though you may need heavier duty rings than the ones for mounting the SV finder to a scope. The SV quick release dovetail is not compatible with a Vixen plate, so you will need to use a different mounting solution
