Product Info

Manufacturer Description

To see objects through a telescope it must be pointed to exactly the right spot. The Telrad is a sight for pointing telescopes to that "right spot." Through a Telrad you see the sky the way the star charts show it. Not a small upside-down and magnified portion of it, but the "real sky" with three lighted target rings set against it. The large ring is 4 degrees across. It outlines the area covered by a finder scope. The center ring is 2 degrees in diameter. The small ring is 0.5 degrees across and outlines the area seen in the telescope.

Select an object on the chart and note its position among the visible stars. Then set the Telrad rings on that spot in the sky. A quick rough setting will put the object in the field of a finder scope. With no finder, or a faint object that won't show, use a more careful setting to put the object in the field of the telescope.

The Telrad is 8 inches long, weighs a mere 11 ounces and mounts on almost any telescope or spotting scope without drilling holes. It unlocks from its base for separate storage. Runs on two AA batteries (not included).

The Telrad Sight has also found wide adoption in the stage lighting industry. It works very well as a spot light sighting devide for professional concert and stage spot light operators.

      5.0 Replacement for old Telrad

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      My old Telrad is slowly going south so time to get a new one. When the time is taken to properly sync this device with the eyepiece view, it becomes a wonderful aid for being sure an object is centered in the eyepiece. Low tech with high functionality

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This review will be of no use to anyone interested in telescope use.

      The telerad spotter seems to be the best item for my needs. I use it for both theater and concert spot light sighting in low to no light and after trying other products I (and many others) still come back to this. It would be nice if it were a bit shorter in length to make packing and transporting easier, that's why I gave it only 4stars.

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This sight is applied to 4 of my most used scopes. Works particularly well on the 6" Mak Cass as your face is close to the axis of the scope anyway. On dobsons it is a bit more challenging to use as the scope tube is right next to your head.
      I have 2 of these and a pair of extra mounting plates.
      They make finding objects very easy.

      5.0 So weird reviewing such an iconic product as the Telrad Finder!!!

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      It is so weird giving my review to such an iconic product as the Telrad Finder. When I bought my first Dobsonian, I immediately bought a fairly high powered finder scope. It was so hard to find my calibration stars. I’d see the suggested star looking up at the night sky, but once I looked through my finder scope the magnified, inverted image was totally disorienting. Not to mention, with the magnification, there were so many more stars through the finder scope than looking with my naked eye. It wasn’t until I took a beginner astronomy class that I found out so many of the experienced “experts” used “Red Dot, Unity 1x” finders. The Telrad has been a favorite for decades with good reason – built tough, reliable, easy to use, perfect pattern for locating target stars.

      Of course I like to accessorize so standard upgrades for all of my Telrads are:
      • Bob's Knobs for Telrad Finder – nice having metal knobs instead of the supplied plastic ones. Easier to use when wearing gloves too!!
      • Telrad Pulser Kit for Telrad Finder # 2010 – after you use the Telrad for a while, you realize it is nicer to use it on a dim setting and making the target sights pulse (instead of remaining on constantly). It is a great way to preserve your precious night vision
      • Dew Shield for Telrad Reflex Finder # 2020 – this cool pivoting dew shield is a very convenient way to guard against dew. But it is also a great protector for the glass viewing screen. It’s always on and you just pivot it out of the way when you want to start targeting.

      As always – all of these items can be found at this website – they have a great inventory of stuff you didn’t know you needed!!

      Comments:

      It is easy to find alignment stars with the telrad. This is the second one I have owned. It does dim the stars a bit, but it is still easy to see them. My older version could be set to blink which was handy and preferred

      5.0 Telrad Telescope Reflex Finder with Mounting Base

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This was recommended by a friend in our astronomy club. I had grown frustrated with my 9x50 straight through finder which I have now replaced with a right angle/correct image (RACI) version. The problem was that it was difficult to locate reference stars that I had located via the binoculars or Stellarium software in the finder. As a result, it was often hard to tell where the scope was actually pointed to, and I wasted lots of time because it was not aiming in the correct place. Our local light pollution just made it worse.
      After mounting and aligning this, I could tell instantly where I was pointing to. Now, when coupled with the RACI finder, it often takes just seconds to find objects that used to take many minutes. In a few cases, I've been able to skip the finder scope altogether and quickly find an object with just the Telrad and low magnification eye piece.
      I was concerned about weight issues/balance on my Dobsonian, but the Telrad is fairly light and did not negatively affect anything. The adjustment screws also make it easy to align. Remember to turn off the device when not using it as it has no automatic cutoff. I would also recommend a dew shield or heater as it can fog up quickly if not covered.

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      The Telrad has been around for decades. I purchased my first Telrad back in 1993 --worked great then, and works great now. This unpretentious, boxy looking, elegantly simple unit is very easy to use, adjust and maintain. Spare parts and accessories, such as dew shields and replacement reticles, are readily available and inexpensive. Last time I checked, it was still made in the USA. Its the only finder I imagine I'll ever need --I just love it

      Cons:

      Comments:

      The Telrad finder is one of my favorite accessories. I've had one on my various telescopes over the years and will never go back to a finderscope. It appears to project a red "bullseye" on the sky, with the innermost circle replacing the crosshairs of a traditional finderscope. Highly recommended!

      5.0 The Best

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      The Telrad finder is the best, non magnifying finedr tool for visually aiming any telescope on any mount. If you can see the object you can aim the telescope at it. There are a number of star chart references that use the Telrad bullseye image on the chart to help an astronomer find fainter objects. I have one of these on each of my scopes.

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I like the Telrad because you're seeing at an unmagnified view, so
      you know where you are in the sky.
      The mounting base for the Telrad can be attached to practically any
      kind of scope even if it doesn't have the usual dovetail base.

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      It may seem odd to put a $40 finder on a $15,000 telescope, but nothing works better for me. Candidly, it would be nice if they made a metal version and in fact I’ve been tempted to make one myself. I haven’t so far, because there’s nothing else that could be improved on the Telrad except the material and my time is better spent observing than making a metal body.. Every scope I have owned over the last 20 years has had a Telrad and unless someone comes up with a better device, I’ll continue using them.

      5.0 Still the best!

      Pros:

      Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Heavy For Small Scopes

      Comments:

      I've had one for over 20 years. You can buy extra bases if you have more than one scope and move it from one to the other. You do have to re sight it in if you do this, but it is fairly easy to do. I bought a second one because I live in a dark sky area and can use both my scopes at the same time. The big "target" is easy to see against the night sky and you can adjust the brightness. The big plus is that you can buy replacement parts and accessories, like taller mounts, replacement reticles and a switch to make the target sight blink at various speeds. Best for scopes like Dobsonian and Newtonian reflectors.

      5.0 Don't observe without one!!

      Pros:

      Accurate,Easy to Use,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      What an excellent finder! Coupled with the Telrad charts that you can download from the internet, this makes finding objects easy. Like other reviewers have stated, it is larger then expected. However, I'm sure the larger size is in part due to the fact that this finder holds 2 AA batteries. The AA batteries are longer and larger then the "coin size" lithium batteries that come with several finders (and the AA batteries are easier to replace - a nice feature on this finder). The mounting tape holds the finder securely to the scope (however, due to the finders size - I don't think it should be mounted on anything smaller then a 90mm refractor). I use it with the Telrad 4in riser. It makes it much easier on my old back and neck! An excellent finder, and a great addition to my observing aids.

      The Telrad finder has helped me find several Messier objects that I could not find using my scope's GoTo feature.....the Telrad allows me to look at the sky with both eyes without any telescope induced inversion of the view. Couple this with the easy to down load Telrad charts and you are in business. Since I've gotten the Telrad, I've found M81, M82 and the Owl Nebula as a start. I have a Meade 10" SCT, and I don't even use the 50x finder scope anymore.

      5.0 My favorite finder

      Pros:

      Strong Construction,Lightweight,Quality Lenses,Accurate,Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This is my favorite finder... I've owned many telescopes and many expensive finder scopes and I prefer this Telrad... it is very easy to use, base plates are easy to attach to mounting rings so it's easy to use on various telescopes... it's interchangeable ... I bought this with four base plates ... two of which I attached to my C6 and C8 ... I just peeled back about 1 inch of the sticky tape on each end of the base plate and then simply press it against the edge of the mirror cell... very easy to align... or if I use it with a mounting ring or rings it's a simple matter to drill a hole or two in the plastic base plate and attach it to the mounting ring rather than the telescope... in this way I can use one finder with all my telescopes... it's also by far the easiest to adjust and has the clearest very nice red circles... not just a red dot , but several circles so you can position your target easily and the brightness varies better then on other finders I have used furthermore the on off switch is very clear and easy to use it's surprising that on many illuminated finders this isn't the case ... on the other more expensive finders it's easy to leave the light turned on and drain the battery so thatTelrad is the best design also it uses nice larger size batteries, it's extremely easy to adjust the axis if I'm changing telescopes I can readjust it in about three seconds well maybe five seconds but really it's that easy... no tiny difficult to adjust finderscope screws... and I can just point at a place in the sky and that's what I see... this works great in the city when it's difficult to see stars and difficult to use finder scopes... if I know where something is I can just point at that location and voila

      5.0 Telrad the perfect star hopper.....

      Pros:

      Lightweight,Accurate,Strong Construction,Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Somewhat Large

      Comments:

      Yes... this is the perfect guy for star hopping. But you need a good star atlas with Telrad acetate overlays.When you familierize with the target you can yourselves get the target by memory.
      The best thing is this doesn't cause parallax effect. So the rings are not changing with eye positioning and you can adjust the brightness well. Mounting up the telrad also is a very eacy tusk. With the help of telrad I was able to locate many objects without using my DSCs.
      I absolutely recommend this instrument for anyone who is willing to get the full satisfaction of star hopping....

      5.0 A must-have accessory for star hoppers

      Pros:

      Accurate,Easy to Use,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Heavy

      Comments:

      Outside of telescopes and eyepieces, this is the best investment I've made in astronomy. Because the right-angle finder that came with my scope has more light-gathering power than my eye, star hopping was difficult to impossible, especially when hunting for objects close to the zenith. The Telrad finder is easy to set up, intuitive to use, and the projected reticle follows your eye, so that you can align with a target even if you're not perfectly centered with the finder. I also find the brightness adjustment to be very helpful, especially when trying to center the sight on dimmer stars. The adhesive strips hold it very securely in place. I considered getting the 2" riser for the Telrad, but I'm able to see through the finder without pressing my face against the telescope.

      The only "negative" is the size -- the housing is large and required me to install it behind my focuser and finder scope, which means I have to crouch down a bit further to find objects overhead. There is a dew shield with built-in right-angle mirror available for the Telrad if this is too much of a problem. I also had to re-balance my Dob after installation.

      All-in-all, if you have a human-powered mount and use star hopping to hunt for DSOs, the Telrad finder is an absolute must-have.

      5.0 Telrad Reflex Finder

      Pros:

      Accurate,Compact,Lightweight,Strong Construction,Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This Telrad finder works great. Constructed out of plastic but I don't really see a need for it to be made out of any other material. Cheap enough to where if it broke you could just buy another. It makes finding deep sky objects very easy, I wish it would have come with the pulser kit standard though. I will mention that its probably mandatory to buy the 4 inch riser accessory, that is unless you want your face squished up against the telescope tube the entire night. Recommended. I would give it 4.5 stars.

      5.0 Valuable accessory for Orion XT8i

      Pros:

      Accurate,Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I have been considering buying the Telrad for a while since I found it difficult to find specific stars using the 9X50 finder scope supplied with my telescope. There is nothing wrong with finder scope, but the magnified view did not match what I was looking at with my eyes, so I was never sure that I was actually pointed at the correct star. The Telrad does not have any magnification and completely removes that doubt. It was easy to install on the telescope tube with the included mount. This product greatly reduced the amount of time I spent star hopping since I can find my starting star immediately now. The only drawback with this product is that it is easy to leave it on when I put the telescope away and this drains the AA battery. However, this is not a big problem since it is easy to replace the battery whenever I forget and leave the unit on.

      Comments:

      Before buying Telrad I was struggling to find and aim at sky objects, with different finderscopes. Now I just need few seconds to aim at anything. You need to align sight at first time, it took 3 mins for me. After that it's always aligned and precise. In the sunny daytime it's more difficult to aim, but in nighttime it is best.

      4.0 No need to change because it works!

      Pros:

      Easy to Use,Accurate,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      There's a reason the Telrad has remained unchanged for many years - it works, and it works well. Simply turn it on, adjust the brightness, and aim. No fuss, no muss. The aiming circles are always at the right spot no matter how you move your head, and their size corresponds directly to degrees of sky making it easy to measure angular distances. Depending on your skies you can use the Telrad by itself or combine it with a magnifying finder.

      There are a few cons. Although it's pretty light compared to a magnifying finder, it is larger than it looks on a website picture, so it's not very well suited to small scopes. The reflecting glass window does tend to dew up (there are several solutions to this problem, both free and commercial.) And being straight-through, you might find yourself contorted and pressing your cheek against a cold metal OTA when using it (again, there are solutions to this, from reflecting mirrors to risers.)

      In my opinion, on a medium sized or larger scope the advantages much outweigh the disadvantages. I wouldn't observe without one on my 10" dob.

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I've used both the traditional and the "reflex" types of finderscopes. For me, there is no substitute for the original Telrad finder. I LOVE my Telrad and can't imagine being without it. The bullseye pattern is very conducive to locating and then centering the star, planet, or other object in the field of view.

      The only potentially negative thing about it that I can think of is its size and weight. Used on a telescope of less than about 6" (150mm) in diameter, the Telrad may prove to be too heavy or bulky, throwing the telescope off balance, and thereby actually hindering the operation of the scope, rather than helping it.

      Got this just recently to replace my Orion EZ Finder. I find it much easier to use the degree rings of the Telrad to jump across the sky than placing the dot and guessing at the distance to move my scope next. It is a little large on my 8" Orion DSE dob but I have added weight holders to the lower end to compensate. I found it very easy to install and alignment was a very straight forward process.

      I had an option between a Telrad finder and a Red Dot finder. Chose the former and I am happy for my decision as observing has become far easier.

      Allignment of the Telrad finder with the telescope is very easy and accurate. Moreover since it is powered by AA batteries, it can last for an entire night's observation.

      4.0 Telrad Reflex Sight

      Pros:

      Easy to use,No flipping of image,Sturdy construction

      Cons:

      Tricky 3-point alignment,May be too long,Dew-prone

      Comments:

      What can I say about the Telrad Reflex Sight that hasn't been said before? Designed after a fighter jet's "Head-Up Display," the Telrad essentially revolutionized Amateur Astronomy when it was introduced in the 1980s.

      The Telrad finder works by superimposing a 3-ringed circular reticle on the actual sky without any magnification. When the sight is aligned properly, aiming the reticle at any portion of the sky easily aims the telescope in the same direction. The reticle housed inside the Telrad unit is focused on infinity by an acrylic lens and is reflected to the user's eye by a 45-degree piece of glass. Three hex-head alignment screws at the back of the unit are used to properly center the reticle on the exact point where the telescope is mounted on is pointing. A knob on the side turns the unit on and adjusts the reticle's light from a faint glow to a bright one for daytime use.

      The Telrad is made of sturdy plastic and is of a very solid design and construction that has remained unchanged since it was first introduced. It mounts onto a base from which it's easily locked down and removed using two small thumbscrews. Extra bases are available to allow the same Telrad unit to be used on more than one telescope. The forward portion of the body slides away for replacement of the two AA batteries used to power the reticle's red LED. The inside of the Telrad appears to have a lot of wasted empty space but this is necessary for the proper projection of the reticle at infinity.

      The 4-degree reticle design is intended to make Star-Hopping easy by providing a good measuring reference. There are also guides available that are designed to simulate a Telrad reticle over star atlas charts. For computers, a few Astronomy Mapping and Charting programs are even able to project a Telrad reticle over a star map.

      Probably the biggest issue users have with the Telrad is its propensity for the 45-degree glass window to accumulate dew. Various aftermarket dew covers and shields are available to prevent this. Another issue is the Telrad unit's length. At 8-

      5.0 Telrad Reflex Finder

      Pros:

      Works great,Lots of options available

      Cons:

      Kind of long

      Comments:

      Using my Orion 6" f/8, the OEM 6x30 finder is just too high up to view through on the Skyview Pro mount. So I bought one of these and mounted it just above the 1/2 way mark on my long OTA! Now I can see everything clearly! The brightness/dimmer switch is great also because I like it just where I can barely see the circles so I'm not blinded when I look through the eyepiece! Telrad also has some nice options for this from the dew shield and the dew plus to make it a right angle finder! Very nice finder for the price and the box makes for a nice storage case!!

      5.0 One of best inventions for astronomers

      Pros:

      Low cost,Easily find any object,Lightweight

      Cons:

      Can dew up,Switch off when not inuse

      Comments:

      What can I say? The Telrad when it came out was considered the best thing that happen for observers with telescopes since the Dobsonian telescope. It is a must for star hopping and is used on many of the worlds largest telescopes. Not because they need one but only to show respect for what it has done for all astronomers around the world.

      5.0 Telrad, the best finder, period.

      Pros:

      Simple and perfect

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This is the perfect finder, you just need a chart, point that portion of sky with your finger, turn the telescope into tha area centering the Telrad and look at the eyepiece, the objet is allready there.
      You will learn your way on the night sky and you will never want to use digital circles, you will be the first one pointing and observing, this is way faster than ANY "go to".
      I have tried, many finders, green lasers, dot finders, I have all, but only one is the best:
      The TELRAD, this invention is worth a Nobel price!

      5.0 What ease to use

      Pros:

      Ease of use

      Cons:

      None

      Comments:

      I love this finder. Use it with your magnified finder. It works great.

      I will look up what we want to view, find the area in the star chart, set the Telrad, look down scope tube and Telrad, find the star or ref. point, lock in the RA and Dec. Then go to my 8x50 finder scope, fine tune and there it is in the eye piece.

      I will need to get an active dew system for the lens on the Telrad as it collects dew very quickly. This has been great to set the scope to any area.

      5.0 A great Device!

      Pros:

      Well made; Easy to use

      Cons:

      Prone to dewing if you are in a damp climate

      Comments:

      I have used the Telrad on a number of different scopes of various sizes. It is probably the single best reflex type sight on the market. On a 'dob' it makes quick pointing and star hopping a breeze, but also works well as a replacement for a traditional "low power" finder on scopes of all sizes. It is very intuitive to use and the quality is quite good. If you need to change the reticle, it is quite easy to do. There are a number of accessories available.

      This is a great addition to any scope!

      5.0 A wonderful tool

      Pros:

      Ease of use

      Cons:

      Size

      Comments:

      I have used many different view finders and finderscopes but my absolute favorite is the Telrad. It was very simple and quick to mount it to my 12.5" Discovery dob. The Telrad basically appears to place a target in the sky via a reflection on a piece of glass. You can get charts designed for the Telrad online which make star-hopping quite easy. All of the parts in the Telrad are easily replaceable such as the reticle. Mine was damaged by the sun (my mistake) but I ordered the part and then installed it with ease. If you are a beginner I would consider this a must have item for any telescope

      5.0 Just get it!

      Pros:

      1x view, easy to use.

      Cons:

      Long

      Comments:

      I had my Orion 8" XTi for a week before mounting a Telrad. Now the Intelliscope is VERY EASY to align.

      The finder scope on the Orion 8" XTi is a 9x50, a great scope on its own but not very good for quick finding. I would spend 5 minutes or more confirming Polaris as the finder would show a large number of stars in the general area. Quite often the Warp factors would be greater than 1.0, not good enough.

      I put the Telrad on my scope in addition to the 9x50 finder. What a difference! I can align the Intelliscope in less than a minute. The 1x view with the rings makes locating anything so much quicker. I can now view many objects in a very short time even without the Intelliscope computer.

      The three point alignment screws are different but simple enough. I live in the desert so dew is not a problem I will have to deal with.

      It has very good battery life. I have forgotten to turn it off for several days and am still on the original batteries.

      4.0 Telrad Reflex Sight

      Pros:

      Easy to use, sturdy construction, no flipping or rotating of image.

      Cons:

      Dew-prone, 3-point alignment may be tricky, may be too long for some scopes.

      Comments:

      What can I say about the Telrad Reflex Sight that hasn’t been said before? Designed after a fighter jet’s “Head-Up Display,” the Telrad essentially revolutionized Amateur Astronomy when it was introduced in the 1980s.

      The Telrad finder works by superimposing a 3-ringed circular reticle on the actual sky without any magnification. When the sight is aligned properly, aiming the reticle at any portion of the sky easily aims the telescope in the same direction. The reticle housed inside the Telrad unit is focused on infinity by an acrylic lens and is reflected to the user’s eye by a 45-degree piece of glass. Three hex-head alignment screws at the back of the unit are used to properly center the reticle on the exact point where the telescope it’s mounted on is pointing. A knob on the side turns the unit on and adjusts the reticle’s light from a faint glow to a bright one for daytime use.

      The Telrad is made of sturdy plastic and is of a very solid design and construction that has remained unchanged since it was first introduced. It mounts onto a base from which it’s easily locked down and removed using two small thumbscrews. Extra bases are available to allow the same Telrad unit to be used on more than one telescope. The forward portion of the body slides away for replacement of the two AA batteries used to power the reticle’s red LED. The inside of the Telrad appears to have a lot of wasted empty space but this is necessary for the proper projection of the reticle at infinity.

      The 4-degree reticle design is intended to make Star-Hopping easy by providing a good measuring reference. There are also guides available that are designed to simulate a Telrad reticle over star atlas charts. For computers, a few Astronomy Mapping and Charting programs are even able to project a Telrad reticle over a star map.

      Probably the biggest issue users have with the Telrad is its propensity for the 45-degree glass window to accumulate dew. Various aftermarket dew covers and shields are available to prevent this. Another issue is the Telrad unit’s length. At 8¼” long, it may be too long to be mounted on some smaller short-focus telescopes. Also, the 3-point alignment system can be a little disorienting. A 2-axis, up-down and side-to-side alignment would be much easier and intuitive.

      Despite it’s drawbacks, the Telrad Reflex Sight is an excellent compliment to a magnifying finderscope. Though other reflex and “Red-Dot” finders are available, some with more features and more streamlined looks, the Telrad is still considered the industry standard for 1x reflex finders.

      5.0 Telrad Reflex Finder

      Pros:

      Lots of options available and works great as a no amplification finder!

      Cons:

      Kind of long but man, it's great. This is not a bad review though!!

      Very nice finder for under $40.00 and the box makes for a nice storage case!!

      5.0 One of the best inventions for astronomers who use telescopes

      Pros:

      Makes finding any object in the sky easier. Low cost. Lightweight

      Cons:

      Can dew up, should be switched off when not in use

      Ease of finding and setting scope to what we want to see

      Cons:
