Vixen Solar FinderVixen's new Solar Finder is an excellent aide for safe solar observation, making it a much simpler process to align your telescope to the sun. This solar finder attaches cleanly and smoothly to any standard finder bracket on your telescope, providing both ease of use and a wide range of compatibility. This finder works by projecting an image of the sun through a pinhole onto a slightly larger circle; you will know your telescope is properly aligned when the projected image is centered in that secondary circle.
Note: Do NOT look directly through the solar finder, and do not use a telescope that is not equipped with a solar filter. Safety is an important priority when engaging in solar astronomy, and you should always take care to make use of proper filters and blocking methods.
