These risers should really by supplied as standard with Telrads, so much more comfortable than when it is slap on top of the scope.
Getting your eye behind them and lining them up like a gunsight is ok with a small rerfactor, but almost impossible with a big Newtonian. You end up with your cheek pressed sideways up against the OTA or laying on the floor peering up along the tube from the base.
The riser makes the Telrad usable just like a stand-off finder scope.
Usual very rapid delivery from FLO, thanks.

Unlike the Telrad finder itself which is excellent, this is a rather expensive piece of plastic which doesn't actually fit without filing. The slots into which the finder fits front and back are too short so need opening out with a narrow file. Doesn't take long but annoying considering the relatively high price for what it is.
