Can't beat 'em
Telrads are the Volkswagens of finder scopes: They're not real pretty but they get the job done just fine. Always happy to purchase from Agena. Their service is excellent, shipping is lightning fast, and products are good quality.

perfect
I used this on a celestron Se 5 ,which already had a piggy back mount on it.Using the long screws coming with the piggy back mount the adapter fits right on it and clears enough to mount a 6x30 angled finderscope perfectly w/o having any modification...

Great addition to magnified finder
My dobsonian came with a decent RACI finder, but being a newbie I was still having trouble finding the correct objects in my finder. I ordered this finder to compliment my RACI, and it was a great decision. It took me 30 min to find M92 the first t...

Celestron Star Pointer Pro Unity Finder
I've been a Telrad user on my Dobs using the calibrated reticle circles to star hop to targets. For smaller OTA's like refractors and SCT's/MCT's under 6", the Telrad looks a little out of place due to its size. Here is where...

Nice
Used this to replace the straight through finder scope that comes with my XLT160 newt and saved my neck trying to find objects.

Wish I choose the black one as the silver tube doesn't match my scope well, but that is just cosmetic.

Did the trick!
Works great on both Celestron and Explore Scientific scopes. You will need to find the appropriate flat head Phillips screws depending on your scope though.

Easy & Accurate
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 h...

Agena Synta / Vixen Style Dovetail Mounting Base / Shoe for Finders -
Very nicely made and mounted on my C8 without any alteration. The mount did require a slight filing of the interior to accommodate the dovetail foot on my Orion CIRA finder. Once the modification was accomplished - perfect fit.

Lumicon laser pointer
The Lumicon laser pointer holds my laser firmly in place. I can position one of the screws to press against the on/off button on the laser and simply turn the screw a fraction of a turn to turn the beam on/off. I was skeptical before purchasing, but ...

I had never used a Telerad before and now I have 2. The extra bases are on my most used scopes so I can move the sights around.
Going to be a great viewing year.
