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.

Best value for an 8x50 finder!
Not only is this the least expensive 8x50 finder I could find, but it's unique in that it's the only one that has nylon tipped metal adjusters for X and Y. Plus it has a really cool TPO logo with Saturn for its O. It has more than a half degree field of view compared to the 9x50 offered by Orion, and for a lot less money. Very good value!
TPO 8x50 Right Angle
Very nice product. Was told on the on-line chat that it would work on an older Orion XT8. It works fine but had to re-position the existing screws on the telescope by turning them around so that they are pointing into the tube. This is so the dove tail would slide into the base. It is larger than I thought but works great.
The finder is a great quality scope. I'm so pleased with this purchase . OPT is the best for price and service.
Bought this to upgrade my original. Works as advertised. Showed up on time and in great condition.
Solid five for bang for the buck
This is a large, hefty finder with very clear optics relative to the price. Note that you will very likely have to adjust the focus - Mine was pretty far off. Loosen the knurled black ring by turning it counter-clockwise as you are looking from the back end, rotate the objective lens section until it's right for you, then tighten the black ring to hold the setting.
