      4.0 Does what it's supposed to, finish issues

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      These rings are what should come with the ES 8x50 straight-through CI finder. They come with only one spring-loaded screw. (The shorter model comes with one on each ring.) They're heavy--on my scope, the extra weight along with the already-heavy 8x50 requires a counterweight. I am having a hard time getting it to balance with the ES 30mm 82 outside of a 45 degree arc in the middle.

      My copy came with a fair number of bubbles in the paint, so I don't know how rust-resistant it will be over time.

      It would be great if these were lighter and the finish quality better, but given the lack of options in the commercial market, they get the job done.

      5.0 This is the fix for your AR102

      Pros:

      Fixes Problem

      Cons:

      Pricey

      Comments:

      This fixes the problem with my new ES AR102 refractor. I say it is pricey in that Explore Scientific should have supplied this with the scope instead of the mostly unusable shorter version that is stock. So, I had to pay an extra $59 to make the finder usable. In short, this is the correct bracket to use with Explore Scientific short tube refractors. It gets the finder scope up and away from the diagonal.

      5.0 Excellent finder bracket for Explore Sci

      Pros:

      Accurate,Strong Construction,Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I use the tall finderscope bracket on my ES127cf. The bracket does all I hoped it would, I easily fitted a stock 50mm straight thru, finder that I already had and was up and running in no time. The bracket is well made, strong, and provides good weight to help balance the tube.
