- eye relief
- build quality
Item well packaged. Truly excellent optics for a finder. Great eye relief. Easy to adjust and it maintains alignment.
This little finder scope is excellent - high build quality
The bracket I purchased has a dovetail that is slightly smaller than the ***** style., therefore it will not hold. I have a ***** 81 Ed . I have afixed it to the handle. The Takahashi bracket will not work on my scope.
I have this nice little finder matched with my TSA-102S. At first, I was afraid that the finder focal length was too short to be paired with the TSA, which has a focal length of just over 800mm. As it turns out, these two work very well together. I can center an object in the little finder and it will appear dead center in the Takahashi looking through an Ethos 13mm eyepiece, at about 62X. This is more than I could have asked for. Also, the coatings on the finder are what I've come to expect from Takahashi-- top notch. The focus mechanism locks, which is a nice touch. It would have been even better if you could use a diagonal with the finder, but thankfully the eye relief is such that you don't need to twist too much to get the full field of view. All in all I am very happy with this finderscope. It was well worth the investment.
