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).

The finder presents you with a bulls eye arrangement, very dim so cannot be aligned during daylight however at night can be adjusted to provide the required level of brightness. As the base is held on by sticky pads, I was concerned that by removing the finder from the base, this would loosen the base, proves not to be the case. I like it.
Was really worried about parallax issues...

Luckily I haven't had any such issues though. It's a nice finder, and allows sufficient dimming to be able to track to the faintest target. It is easy to mount with the included sticky tabs
Excellent addition. Game changer for me.

I was at the end of my wits with the Meade RDF fitted on a 90mm StarNavigator. It only has 2 brightness settings and alignment to anything but exceptionally bright was challenging! It seemed the Manufacturer left me with limited options to change it. However, thanks to a few enquiries I managed to find an alternate solution and this is it. The adjustable Telrad finder makes finding objects a breeze and is so much better than what was fitted. The box comes with everything you need to get started with exception of the CR2032 battery, which to be fair is fairly common and can be bought almost anywhere. The included double sided adhesive pads seem to do the job once you have fixed it to the OTA and no problems since. I would agree that you will need to do alignment when conditions are pretty much dark, otherwise you probably wont see it. I would suggest one of the bright stars (I used Arcturus) and once this was completed all was good. Id like to thank the FLO team for their recommendations on this item and for a speedy delivery. Would definitely purchase from them again.

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.
