Sky-Watcher's 9x50 Right-Angled Erecting Finderscope provides an upright image with completely corrected left/right image orientation for more comfortable and convenient operation when compared to a traditional straight-through viewing finder.
The achromatic 50mm objective delivers good light gathering, a wide 45° field of view and a cross-hair reticule for easy navigation.
The 50mm aperture is genuine, it is not stopped down like some cheaper finderscopes.
Easy to setup and easy to use. The mounting bracket fits into standard finder shoes from Vixen, Sky-Watcher, Celestron, GSO, etc. Additional finder shoes are available separately.
To focus the finderscope simply unscrew the lock-ring, rotate the objective, then re-close the lock-ring.
9x50 Finderscope RA erecting finderscope.
Quick-release finder bracket compatible with various finder bases.

This is an other excellent product from FLO, the field of view is excellent with this finder, and when you get the hang of it you will have no problem finding objects in the night sky. Delivery service was excellent from FLO as usual. Thank you FLO

I bought this to replace the straight unit I had on my dobsonian, this makes life much easier as I don't have to lay my face against the telescope.
The only issue is that it is not easy to see the cross hairs against faint objects but this is a small problem considering the cost and quality of the unit.
I would recommend this item.

bought this finderscope because my neck problems are worsening with straight-trough finderscopes. this finderscope is perfect to relieve these problems. Will replace all my other finderscopes with these type finderscopes eventually. simple but efficient ! recommended.
Saw onTV the 90 deg finder scope inuse. I needed one

That was very handy as is very easy for my Sky Watcher inter changeable of finderscope lenses now to spot with out bending down as with the straight finder, The settings are not lost when changing over on the Vee Slide on the Telescope itself

This had made my entire astronomy hobby so much more comfortable. Not only can I scan around knowing what's up down left and right, I can do it in s comfortable position. Sits perfectly on my 150p and has helped me find loads of new objects without breaking my back.

Puts my old 6x30 straight-through finder to shame. Much brighter so useful for DSOs and having an erect image is intuitive. My one criticism is that 9x mag is almost too powerful. 7x would make it easier to locate the target. But this is a minor issue.

This 9x50 finderscope is probably the best accessory I've acquired. Incredibly comfortable compared with the miserable 6x30 straight through that I've just thrown away.
I also have to mention the people at first light optics for their help and courtesy, whose assistance made the purchase a pleasure.
5 stars all round!
Should be standard on all scopes

I've used straight through finders for ages but with an EQ mount thy get put in some really awkward positions for viewing / finding a target, my neck / back is just not that flexible on a cold night.
This is a real boon, not only does it present the view in the same position as the eyepiece but it's corrected so slewing onto the object is much more intuitive. Why aren't these standard on all Newts, even with the difference in retail cost they'd be worth it !

My SWED80 came with a 9x50 straight through finder which in turn meant a cricked neck and yoga style moves to see through the finder.
So I changed it to the RA finder and have not regreted it. I like the fact that everything is the right way as that makes things easier when first locating a target.
I rate it 4 because in my opinion it should have locking nuts to set the position when aligned.
