    TPO 50mm Finderscope Bracket with Base

    The TPO 50 mm Finder Bracket was designed to accept the TPO 50 mm Finderscope. This single-ring design holds the finder firmly in place, and adjustments can be made to its alignment by turning each of the knurled thumbscrews. Each thumbscrew moves the finder in a particular direction, allowing you to match the view you see through your finder to the image you see through your telescope's eyepiece. The stalk of the TPO 50 mm finder bracket terminates in a standard dovetail shoe with quick release. Mount the shoe to your telescope and you can easily add or remove the finder and bracket each time you set up or break down.

    • This TPO Finder Bracket was designed to fit the TPO 50 mm Finderscope.
    • The single-ring design makes adjustments easier...adjust three thumbscrews instead of six!
    • The standard dovetail shoe fits most telescopes and provides a quick release method for mounting and removing the finder and its bracket.
    • TPO 50 mm Finderscope sold separately.

    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • How difficult is it to attach this base to a refractor type telescope?

      It depends on the refractor, frankly. Many scopes from Orion, Celestron, Sky-Watcher, and others already come with the foot that fits this bracket, while others have the proper screw holes on the tube already. Fitting this onto a tube without the right ho

    • Will this bracket work with a celestron or orion 9x50 mm finder and will it fit to an older celestron 8" sct? Than you

      Sean, The TPO bracket will fit the Orion 9X50 finder although the Orion does come with a bracket. The 9X50 Celestron finder we have does not fit.

    • Does this OTA comes with a vixen type mounting rail, or does it have to be mounted exclusively on a LX200 fork?

      Alfredo, The OTA has a weird sort of boxy dovetail on it but you can remove it, put on an ADM Vixen style dovetail and use it on a mount with a Vixen dovetail saddle.

    • Does this OTA comes with a vixen type mounting rail, or does it have to be mounted exclusively on a LX200 fork?

      It comes with the Vixen Dovetail. It does not have to be mounted to a fork mount

    • Is this metal and does it come with an O-ring that holds the scope in the front? Thanks.

      Hello Bob, Thank you for your question. Both the finderscope & the bracket that comes with it are made of metal and it indeed comes with an O-ring on the front that holds the finder in place.

    • What is the distance from thumbscrews to o-ring? What is the thumbscrew material? Will this bracket work with a 58mm OD scope?

      Distance from O-ring to thumbscrews is 53mm Thumbscrews are nylon. ID of bracket is 55mm

    • Will this bracket hold the antares 7x50 RACI scope?

      Unfortunately, no, it is going to be too tight of a fit... to the point where marring of the finder's paint is likely to occur. The Antares AE-F50DTB-9 will do a much better job of matching the finder's outer-diameter.

    • Will this bracket work with the Vixen 8616, 7x50 illuminated finder scope?

      Yes, it will work just fine. Thank you, Sean 760-400-0235
