Model:  telrad-finder
Brand:  Telrad

The Telrad finder is the original and best selling reflex finderscope.

This simple, functional and accurate finder for a telescope is much easier to use than a conventional finder-scope.  

It projects a set of circles 0.5 degrees, 2 degrees, and 4 degrees, that enable you to align your telescope on objects in the sky.  

You can also use the circles to star-hop from one object to another. I.e. if a galaxy is 8 degrees away from a star, you simply count two 4-degree circles. 

Two AA batteries will typically last 1-2 years. 

Supplied with a universal base plate that can be attached via screw holes or the included sticky pads.

Astronomy aside, the Telrad finder is also popular with those working with stage lighting.  With a Telrad attached follow-spot light operators can point with precision.

Understandably the favourite.

Bigger than would would imagine, (though fairly lightweight), but simple and very nicely constructed.
Very convenient to use and well supported by third party software and guides.
A targetting circle is definitely a better idea than an obscuring dot.
I will be buying the dew shield with the reflex finder to make it easier to view on my 10" Dob.

I have two of these. They are very good but I make two additions. The first is that I add two resistors to heat the screen and keep the dew at bay and my own version of a flasher circuit to blink the circle on and off. Both these are availble from Flo if you are not technically minded.The AA batteries last for ages.

i always struggled with the finderscope on my 200p ,star hopping was hopeless so i invested in a Telrad now makes finding targets a breeze so much easier ,there are plenty of telrad maps to help you ,easily calibrated to what you see in the eyepiece , and if you have two telescope purchase a second base ,would recommend for beginners especially .

The telrad arrived on time, fitted it to my scope in less than two minutes, I lined up the telrad and my scope no problem, took it out that night and it was perfect for getting me on objects in the night sky, you can dim the bullseye illuminating rings so dimmer stars are not drowned out. I am very pleased with my purchase and the prompt delivery thank you

Just got this through the post took just over 1 day to arrive. I was really surprised at the size of the unit but fitted to my skywatcher 130 with no problems. Easy to attach using the sticky pads and so far is really solid. Alignment took minutes and now just waiting for a clear night to try it out.
Great item

The outer moulding of this product is solid but the inner workings look very cheap. Imagine the cheapest AA battery pack you used for a high school science project and thats what you will find when you open the cover. Image produced on the mirror by way of a flimsy sticker over the LED bulb which coincidently didn't work. Would have sent this product back even if it had worked.
