About this product

Model:  ae_9x50rae_finder

Upright image with completely corrected left/right image orientation.

This 9x50 Right-Angled Erecting Finderscope provides an upright image with completely corrected left/right image orientation.

Cricked neck? 

A right-angled erecting finderscope provides a more comfortable and convenient viewing position when compared to a traditional straight-through viewing finder. 

Fully multicoated optics and 50mm objective lens provide good light gathering, a wide 45° field of view and a cross-hair reticule for easy navigation.

The mounting bracket fits into standard finder shoes from Vixen, Sky-Watcher, Celestron, GSO, etc. Additional finder shoes are available separately.

To attach this to a Celestron SCT you will need a Baader Quick Release Finder Base.

To focus the finderscope simply unscrew the lock-ring, rotate the objective, then re-close the lock-ring.

Well worth upgrading!

It's so much more comfortable to use with a bad back on my newt than a straight through finder. A quick look through the Quikfinder then it's next to the focuser so not too much bending over.
Nice big clear views and it's easier navigating, being fully corrected.
Just can't fault it.

Great upgrade

Another excellent and speedy service from FLO. This finder is a quality piece of kit, it feels well made and very solid. Not used it in anger yet but it will be much better than my RDF for locating and aligning to objects whilst saving my neck and back. The optics look to be very good also. The only thing I would be wary of is the weight of it, it could have potential to drop out of the shoe if the scope is pointing at objects at high altitude which could be easily rectified with a screw dimple or increasing the friction in the shoe fitting. In all, a great product and at great price.

I have a dobsonian which makes it near impossible to use the straight-through finder. The AE 9x50 90deg finder was as an obvious choice as I wasn't too keen on the SW white livery.
Good looks aside, it works very well and makes both navigating around the sky and alignments easier as I can slew at a higher speed/rate 9 while looking through the finder, then switch to low speed/rate 2 or 3 and use the eyepiece to centre my alignment stars. A good upgrade.
