Product Info

Manufacturer Description

This is a new Antares quick-release finder bracket with two rings for 50mm finders. While the rings are the same as Antares' popular F50DTB rings, this new item uses a more commonly used Synta/Vixen style dovetail base for attachment to your telescope as compared to the Antares-proprietary style on the F50DTB rings..

Each ring includes three-point screw adjustment for precisely aligning your finder. This bracket can be used with finder tubes 1.2" - 2.2" in diameter. All metal with black matte finish and nylon screws.

A standard Vixen/Synta style base is included (center-to-center hole spacing requirement of 19.4mm). The base will sit on any flat or curved surface, although the hole spacing on this base will not fit SCT telescopes.

Specifications:

  • Inside diameter of rings: 61.8mm
  • Suitable for finder tubes between: 31mm to 56mm in diameter
  • Width of rings: 13mm
  • Inside distance between rings: 54mm
  • Outside distance between rings: 80mm
  • Weight (rings only): 4.8oz
  • Weight (dovetail base): 1.5oz
  • Made in Canada.

      5.0 finder bracket

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This was a great price because AgenaAstro considered it a "Cosmetic Blem" because it might have some marks on it. Looks great, works great.

      5.0 Works fine

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      The one I got had a perfect finish with no blems but shorter adjustment screws, which is exactly what I needed for my 50mm finder. Good product, good deal.
