Item #  07413

This quality finder scope features a multicoated 50mm achromatic lens assembly and 8x magnifying power. It's an ideal step up from a red dot finder or smaller optical finder scope. The larger aperture will let you see fainter stars and even some deep-sky objects.

The 8x50 Achromatic Finder Scope's field of view is 5.8 degrees and has single crosshairs for easy, precise centering of objects. The view is inverted and reversed. The aluminum tube has a gloss black finish on the outside and is painted flat black on the inside to prevent internal reflections. The rotatable front cell holds the objective lens assembly and acts as a dew shield. It is cut internally with baffle threads to prevent reflections and enhance contrast.

This finder scope comes with a cast-aluminum bracket with a dovetail foot that fits the finder scope base on most Orion telescopes. Alignment of the finder scope with the main telescope is easy and intuitive by virtue of two perpendicular nylon thumbscrews and an opposing spring-loaded pin.

The finder scope's focus can be adjusted by loosening the knurled lock ring just behind the front cell, then rotating the cell either way as needed until focus is reached. The lock ring is then retightened against the cell.

Weighs 15.0 oz.
