      5.0 Beautifully made piece of equipment!!

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This is a gorgeous, stiff extruded aluminum bracket designed to mount a finder scope onto the Explore Scientific Telescope proprietary mount. It has a nice black anodized matte finish.

      Unfortunately Explore Scientific doesn’t offer a Red Dot, Unity 1x finder. I bought this bracket in order to modify it and attach my Telrad finder scope to my “102mm Refractor”. I cut off the rings, filed down the sides and added two tapped holes to allow the Telrad to be bolted to the base. It works perfectly!!

      5.0 ES standard height finder bracket

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      Bracket fits tightly to ES scopes and holds a 50mm guide scope solidly. The order was processed quickly and the shipment arrived on time without any issues.

      5.0 Solid and lightweight, appropriate for finder scopes

      Pros:

      Accurate,Lightweight,Compact

      Cons:

      Comments:

      If you need a low profile method to mount your finder scope, this works well. Construction is solid and lightweight and it is stable enough to hold a typical 50 mm finder scope. Due to flexure, it is not suitable for holding a guide scope, nor is any other device of this design in spite of the fact that many are sold with just this type of setup.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
      Was this review helpful? Yes / No

      1.0 Okay for visual only

      Pros:

      Lightweight

      Cons:

      Difficult to Use

      Comments:

      Plastic screws make fine adjustment frustrating and all-but impossible. This model uses spring-mounted tension screws which introduces flexure, as well. If you need a way to mount a guide-scope then look elsewhere, this is a mess.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? No
