The finder scope is nice and small and is all metal construction. Quality is excellent. I wasn't interested in the bulky plastic Telrad and very happy I opted for this type of compact finder. I use it with my 10" ACF meade SCT. Several dot sizes and crosshairs are selectable with the rear dial. Brightness has 7 levels of adjustment for dark skies or even daytime. Only slight drawback is the plastic mount standoff is a little flexy but accurate. I bought the ***** metal standoff for $19 and it is super rigid. No regrets at all!
