The StarPointer Finderscope adds “point and look” functionality to any telescope!
- This red dot finder keeps the sky right-side up, matching what you see with your unaided eyes.
- The adjustable red dot is bright enough to see day or night.
- Attaches to just about any telescope thanks to the small footprint, even works great with astronomical binoculars and spotting scopes.
- Includes mounting base and a long-lasting CR2032 3V battery.
A red dot finder, unlike an optical finder, has 1x magnification, displays a super wide field of view, and keeps the sky right side up and left-to-right correct, matching what you see with your unaided eyes. An LED creates a red dot, superimposed on a viewing screen, so you simply point the StarPointer to the area or object you wish to observe, look through your eyepiece, and if properly aligned, the area in and around the place you pointed the red dot will be centered in the field of view.
