The Telrad riser allows the user to use the Telrad Reflex Finder effectively by raising the finder above the telescope tube surface or other devices that may be mounted onto the telescope. The riser fits securely between the finder and its base without the use of additional tools. The Telrad Reflex Finder 4" Riser # 2104 raises the Telrad height by approximately 4".
4" Riser Specifications
- Height: 4.34" (110.3mm)
- Weight: 4.6oz
Please note that the Telrad and base shown in the first photo are for illustration only and are not included. The second photo shows both the riser models available (2" or 4") but you will only receive the one you order, not both.

This is a wonderful product to use. The construction of the product is strong and sturdy which shows because of the quality components used. I would differently recommend this to a friend.

Telrad 4'' RiserPros:
Strong Construction,Lightweight,Easy to UseCons:
The Telrad 4'' riser is the best idea since sliced bread. It places the telrad high enough to make positioning your head effortless with less neck strain. I can now move the big scope around and not have to bend down as far, having the reticle far away from the tube makes finding objects much easier. I almost fell off the ladder using my old telrad base which was flush with the tube. This way the reticle is better positioned and I don't have to lean over as much which is much safer.

Easy to UseCons:
I needed to add some height to my Telrad because it must be mounted close to the focuser. This extension allows me to comfortably move from sighting with the Telrad to viewing through the focuser. The base is lighter than improvising a block of wood for the same purpose. Looks better too.

Strong Construction,Easy to Use,LightweightCons: Comments:
Works great to bring the Telrad finder up another 4inches. Just back out the set screws all the way on the Telrad base, take out the Telrad finder. Put the riser on the base, tighten the set screws. Back out the set screws on the top of the riser, and put in the Telrad finder. Tighten the set screws, and you're done, no problems. Relieves me from having to bend over and stoop down to sight in the finder!!

Easy to Use,Lightweight,Strong ConstructionCons:
Too Tight For Telrad,Needs To Be 3" Not 2 Or 4Comments:
This improves the use of the Telrad on my 12" dob, but a 3" riser would have been perfect for me. The Telrad fits very tightly into the slot, to the point where you have to force it in and hope the telrad legs do not break.....maybe I need to file the slot a little bigger, shame you have to modify a new item though.

Lightweight,Compact,Easy to Use,AccurateCons: Comments:
Works perfectly. A must have for a smooth running observing session. Like the other reviewer stated, I too had to put my cheek against the tube of my 8" dob to use the Telrad. This fixes the neck strain.

Relief for the cheekPros:
Easy to Use,LightweightCons: Comments:
Adding the 4" Telrad riser to my 8-inch dob was a great purchase. Without it I had to press my cheek on the optical tube to see through the Telrad. Not fun for the neck or back! And in cold weather not fun for the cheeks! This riser makes the Telrad very comfortable to use.
