Bright
Bought this for my refractor, as I have one on my RC. This one is much brighter to the point that it washes out the point of view. Tried all the settings and even the lowest is too bright. It looks like the same one on my RC which is great , but not ...

Nice simple red dot finder
This was a perfect replacement for a stock finderscope on an 8" Orion dob used for scout outreach. Fit perfectly in the existing orion/synta shoe. Simple, lightweight, and easy for the scouts to use.

Works fine
The one I got had a perfect finish with no blems but shorter adjustment screws, which is exactly what I needed for my 50mm finder. Good product, good deal.

Best and easiest finder out there
I don’t know why I didn’t get one when I first started in the hobby. I use this with both my SCT and refractor and once it’s setup it’s dead on. So easy to use. You won’t be disappointed.

Good for the price, standard dovetail
A good finderscope at this price, with (best of all!) a standard dovetail. My quibbles are minor. (i) The mount stalk is really too high for easy switching between scope and finder. (ii) The third pin is spring loaded in this mount (also available un...

Shield performs as it should, however the gauge of the plastic could be a little thicker. My first unit broke at the mounting lugs, however Agena did a fast turn around with a replacement....no questions asked. First rate service.....and my new sourc...

Excellent binocular support, very rigid and sturdy. Snap on attachment for bino is the most important feature although a little difficult to mount bino in slot. The only thing on the bino is the little screw fitting, so nothing to disassemble when yo...

Stand up straighter
I bought the right-angle finder because using the small finder on my Sky Watcher 150 was too difficult to properly use. When trying to view objects more directly overhead, it was almost impossible to use. The right-angle finder is much easier to use ...
