About this product

Model:  bskysurfer3


This new updated Baader SkySurfer III features a modified rear section that enables it to also be used as a solar finder. 

Other features include a 30mm optical window with anti-reflective lens coatings and an extra long lens housing that acts as an effective dew cover. 

Red Dot Finders are the 'easiest' finders to use. Simply align the red dot over the star/object/area and... Job done! 

Supplied with adapters to fit virtually any telescope, it can also be used with some binoculars and spotting scopes. 

Please follow safety precautions when observing the Sun!

Good budget red dot finder
30 December 2023  | 

Happy days. Purchased for my Celestron Skyprodigy after 4 of the proprietary ones failed or didn't work from new. Fits perfectly, good bright dot and easy to align.

Decent Red Dot Finder
02 July 2023  | 

I wanted this red dot finder as slightly lighter, less bulky alternative for a standard 50mm finderscope. It is certainly lighter and smaller, and is easy to set up, adjust and use. For the price, one I can definitely recommend.

A Big Improvement On The Usual RDFs
19 November 2022  | 

I like having a dual finderscope setup, an RDF and a RACI 50mm which gives me the x1 magnification that you really need to get into the general area and then switching to the 50mm for more precise target finding. This RDF is a big improvement on the mass Synta ones both in quality, flexibility and ease of use. This new version can also double up as a solar finder which is proving to be incredibly useful. The downside is that, like all RDFs, it is somewhat challenging to get these precisely aligned with the main telescope tube but that's not really where the strength an RDF lies.

Baader 30mm SkySurfer iii

Excellent bit of kit all round. Only bit of niggle was the button battery securing clip. which was not positive in securing the battery at all times. However a judious bending of the clip has appeared, so far, to cure the problem.
This has been the case with my previous cheaper finders.

So much better!

I am a newbie to astronomy and found the RDF that cam with my Sky Watcher less than useless. This however, has a much higher perceived build quality and works a treat.

I've been using red dot finders ever since I started using a telescope. I've always used the cheap generic ones. This is way beyond what I expected.
A great addition and certainly worth I.

Good sized RDF
02 May 2022  | 

Super quick delivery which sets FLO apart from others. The Finder is generally good construction the only negative I found was mounting this to my WO Zenithstar ii, as the only mounting plate the scope had that was similar to the handle on the WO was the one with the additional raised section for usual insertion into SW shoes, nothing that a little bit of alteration couldn't solve.

Works well

Nice big red dot finder which seems to work well. Fitted in addition to my optical one. Once they're all aligned these two finders and main scope work well together.
