Wonderful finder. Shows many NGC and Messier objects directly. Wider field of view than other 50mm finders (8 x 50, 9 x 50).
Excellent eye relief. Unlike most 50mm finders, works well with eyeglasses. And, unlike most finders, comes with rubber eyeguard which protects glasses from scratches. With lens and end caps. Focus is adjustable. Originally sold by Discovery Telescopes as an option for its DHQ dobs.
Celestron finder mount. Has preferred six-screw, two-ring adjustment system. Holds position well, better than two screw, spring type. Comes with its own dovetail metal mounting bracket & receptacle for attaching to scope. Secure. Will include mounting hardware (screws, bolts from hardware store).
Optics in excellent condition, tube very good. (The bottom outside of the finder tube has two thin scratches, each 3/4 inches long. Has no bearing on functioning and are not visible when attached to mount. A black Sharpie or Parker pen should restore them to their original black.)
Selling because I switched to a finder with greater magnification.
$60. U.S. postal money order preferred, otherwise delay for check to clear. Add shipping & insurance via U.S. priority mail or UPS from 13850 to anywhere in lower 48.
E-mail me with any questions.
