Product Details

  • The Telrad Finder Scope provides a non-magnified window on the sky -

    and projects 1/2 inch, 2-inch and 4 inch illuminated red bullseye circles on the screen which can be brightened or dimmed for user needs. Simply place the star in the center of the bullseye and start star hopping! Both beginning astronomers and seasoned veterans alike enjoy the Telrad's red circle view because it makes it easy to compare to star charts and find objects. For example, a galaxy located 4 degrees southeast of a star becomes simple to locate because your visual reference points are clearly defined. No wonder the Telrad reflex finder is one of the most popular astronomy accessories!

    Adding a Telrad Finder to your telescope is equally easy.

    Simply connect the included Mounting Base using either provided screws or double-sided tape, align, and you're ready to begin. Additional mounting plates can be purchased and your Telrad bullseye can be moved from scope to scope! Indispensable for accurately centering alignment stars for Go-To telescope models and a "must have" for Dobsonian users, the Telrad finder is so easy that even the youngest stargazer can use it... Even special star charts have been designed to work with this ingenious piece of equipment! Measuring 8.15 x 1.75-inches, the Telrad reflex finder requires two AA batteries and supplies hours upon hours of service. Simply switch it off between objects to conserve battery life - or leave it on and share with others where you're aimed!

it works

I have used the Talrad several nights and it makes sighting easier especially if you have a regular spotter scope. Far less neck strain.

Game changer for me

I added a release to my recently acquired 10-in Dob. I was just using a laser finder previously. I am finding the telrad very accurate and easy to use. Plus, a lot of star maps and apps have telrad markings on them.

Just get it.

The reviews on these and fame they get is a hundred percent accurate. It just works and it works well. The actually projected target is so large that it makes it possible to use a star finder app on your phone and line your phone with the Telrad. I use it on a 12" ES Dob. If you have a manual telescope, non GoTo, this is a must. The only thing I was surprised about was the size, it's quite big, but it quickly diminishes quickly once you see how well they work.

Excellent finder scope

This finder scope is a huge improvement over the built in one on my telescope. It is extremely easy to align, and once it is aligned, I can find things in seconds.
