Easy to use reflex-type finder that is similar to the Telrad Reflex Finder but a fraction of the size and weight.
Uses an ultra-efficient LED and runs off a CR2032 lithium battery (not supplied) for long life.
QuikFinder attaches without drilling and is easily removed from its baseplate for storage. Additional baseplates are available for using QuikFinder on more than one telescope.
Baseplate is 2.5 inches long, 2 inches wide and 1/2 inch high.
QuikFinder is 4.5 inches tall, 1.4 inches square and weighs only 80g.
An optional AA battery-holder for up to 2700 hours of operation from 2x AA alkaline batteries is available.
To test your Rigel Quikfinder, insert a fresh CR2032 battery then turn the left knob fully clockwise and the right knob fully anti-clockwise. You will now be able to see the reticule while in a dark room or under some blankets (it needs to be dark).

Very helpful finder. Even though my telescope is very large ,and the field is quite narrow , this Finder is accurate enough.
Donít need a finderscope anymore.

Put the Rigel quick finder on my astromaster and the difference is amazing.

Bought one of these for my SW150p.
Works a treat.
I did find the sticky pads didn't hold perfectly on their own, so i just added a blob of black silicon either end of the sight mount to just make sure it stays put.
FLO were excellent as usual.

I got this as an upgrade to the RDF on my Astromaster 130EQ..
Absolutely brilliant, so easy to use, it was stuck on and setup up in around 5 mins..
If you want a brilliant finder for a really good price, I would recommend this all day long..
Flo are a great company with great prices and delivery is exceptionally fast..

I haven't used the new telrad yet but as replacement I was happy with the first one.

I really didn't know if this would be as good as they said. However once I had worked out how to insert the battery (+ outwards) and used the sticky pad to stick it on the tube. It became clear how it worked! And it works well - I calibrated it using Mars as the distant object.

Much easier sighting than red-dot finder. Recommended.
Improvement would be to make easily removable for transportation as it is quite tall [otherwise would have been 5 stars].

This is my perfect finder. Very functional. Keeps on working. It's been on 5 different OTA's now. Very light weight too. Love it

FLO service = 5*
Product just what I wanted for camera pointing and polar alignment of my tracking device. One small caveat: the brightest setting of the illuminated sighting rings is not enough for daylight adjustments but fine in half light. A useful enhancement would be an adapter to fit DSLR hotshoe - DIY resolved this.

After receiving an Celestron Astromaster 130EQ MD for christmas it quickly became apparent that the supplied finder was not a accurate as it should be, cue the quest for an upgrade.
After reading many forum topics and posts on Stargazers Lounge and other astronomy sites it turns out that many other budding amature astronomers with the same scope were having the same issues as me, and were also looking to upgrade, of all the suggestions put forward i decided on a zero magnification finder and that narrowed it down to two personal options, this or a telrad.
After more research it would seem that having a telrad would cause balance issues due to the size so the Rigel was ordered, best decision ever made.
Ordered on Saturday, recieved on Tuesday, on scope Wednesday.
After a "rough alignment" during the day i waited for the night to arrive to put it through its paces.
As soon as Jupiter was in the sky i got to work, even with the "rough alignment" i was able to get the scope on target, it wasn't in the view of the scope but easily found due to its brightness, after getting it central i made the final adjustments to fine tune the finder and set about on a viewing frenzy.
1st port of call, Polaris for a quick polar alignment, got the star in the finder after a few scope adjustments, looked through the eyepiece and there it was, next was Pleides, spot on, back to Jupiter, same result, whatever i got in the center of the finder was in the scope.
So, for anyone looking for a finder upgrade with zero mag for a small scope, this is by far the best out there in my opinion.
And a final thanks to FLO for the fast devilery!
Clear skies and happy gazing!
