    TPO 8x50 Right Angle Image Correct Finderscope with Bracket & Base

    Upgrade your existing finderscope with this TPO 8 X 50 right angle, image erect finder! The white finderscope sports optics with a 50 mm diameter for better light-gathering than a 30 mm finderscope, and the 8X power allows for a wide field of view while increasing the magnification to eight times more than your eyes can see. The right angle feature of the TPO 8X50 Finderscope lets you look down into the finder's eyepiece rather than straight through the barrel. Most people find this arrangement more comfortable on the back and neck, especially when looking at objects that are at or near zenith. Also, the TPO 8X50 Finderscope offers a correct image, which means objects will be right-side up. That is good news for those who wish to use their finderscope terrestrially.

    The TPO RAIC 8X50 Finder comes with its own single-ring bracket. Two over-sized thumbnail screws and one spring loaded positioner for quick and easy alignment. The base of the finder slides into the included base and locks into position. It is easy to remove the finder and bracket from your telescope when you put it away for the evening. Just slide the bracket out of the base, lock the thumbscrew back down so you don't lose it, and store the finder & bracket in your telescope accessory case.

    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • Can this be used with the Meade 8"SCT?

      Yes, the included base will match up to the hole pattern on a Meade SCT where the finder bracket normally attaches.

    • How do the tips of the tripod legs keep from slipping out ? George.. Thanks.

    • Will the dovetail base work on a Celestron C6S SCT?

    • will this product adapt to the mounting ring for the viewfinder of an ETX 90EC

    • Will this mount on refractor hinged rings like Stellarvue for instance?

      Ray, I've been trying to find an adapter for the TPO finder but they don't really fit too well with the shoe on that bracket. I would just get the SV-R50E bracket for hinged rings. That will fit your hinged rings. We do have them in stock also. Pleas
