For those who prefer there Telrad Finder a little higher above the telescope tube.
Quick and easy to fit.

I wanted the 4 inch base but they were out of stock so opted for the 2 inch and this fine for my 10 inch dob mounted Skywatcher reflector, made of plastic but solid build....And once again great sevice from FLO.
Expensive bit of plastic but worth it

Having read multiple comments on websites and videos on YouTube I realised one of the risers would be a good idea, but I wasn't sure between the 2" and the 4". Now having got it on my scope I'd strongly recommend the 4" as it is perfectly positioned to make it easier to use the Telrad.

I ordered this in the 4 inch version as I'm a large man and figured I'll get a better view this way. It arrived today such is great just a bit annoying as weather terrible today but previous w nights were perfect conditions. Product is what I wanted when I get chance to use it I'll update this review but so far I can't complain.
Expensive but functions well

Great service from FLO as usual.
Great bit of kit that makes using a big Newt easier. Dropped it a star because its expensive for a bit of plastic.

I could no longer use my Telrad/Skywatcher 200p combo due to a neck injury. However, the Telrad Riser bar has solved the problem. I think most if not all users of reflectors would benefit from the Riser bar, IMHO. 👍

It makes viewing easier

I couldn't make up my mind which one to go for, so I bought both! It would have been silly not to, give the low price! They fit perfectly and I've no problems and recourse to using a file on them. I've tried both and I still can't decide which one I prefer on my SW 200P.

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.
