Less Eye Fatigue = Better Astrophotographs -- PulsGuide pulses the reticle illumination to let the eye rest between pulses. The result? Improved contrast between reticle and faint guide stars for easier guiding and better astrophotographs or acquisition of faint object in your finderscope.
Two Knob Timing Control and Adjustable Brightness -- 2 knobs let you independently tailor on and off blink times from continuous on to long-on/short-off or short-on/long-off or anything in between.
Two Color LEDs -- Comes with red LED which you can switch to yellow LED by unplugging red and plugging in yellow. Some astrophotographers find low level yellow makes the cross hair clearer and sharper, and makes guiding even easier.
Available With or Without Eyepiece -- Use our quality, dual crosshair, 12.5mm plossl eyepiece or with your eyepiece or finder. Fits standard 8mm threaded hole. Uses one long life lithium battery (included) that is available at most electronics, camera and hardware stores.

Good product that does as advertisedPros: Cons: Comments:
Works very well. The brightness can be adjusted from bright to a very low level which is nice when your eyes are dark adapted. Conventional reticle illuminators are way to bright even at the lowest setting and this one is a big improvement on that. A little cheaply constructed but overall a good product that is worth the investment.

Does the job, but...Pros:
This unit does the job, but the build quality could be higher. The yellow LED was DOA, so I was not able to use it. The red LED worked fine. The power switch at the end of the unit rattled due to the circuit board fitting loosely in the body. I solved that by wrapping a bit of foam padding around the circuit board before inserting it into the body. The body is larger than my old Celestron illuminator, but it looks good with the scope and weighs less than the old unit.
