Replacement for old Telrad
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 functionalit...

Telrad: can't live without it!
An extra base makes it easy to move my Telrad from one 'scope to another. For a week or two I used my new telescope without the Telrad and missed it sorely.

Basic Reflex Sight
Does a great job and attached easily to the GSO Crayford focuser on my wife's previously finder-deprived Skywatcher 120 F5 achro. Easy to align and adjusts dim enough for astronomical use. Performance is really not far short of the TeleVue Starb...

Very nice guidescope!
Works like a charm. Throw on a 2x barley for even finer guiding. Works well for a wider angle EAA scope.

Using this on a 2”
Using this on a 2” GSO Crayford Focuser for refractors. It fits the radius of the focuser perfectly and locks down tight enough even though the GSO focuser only one has a single threaded hole for it. There is no stop on this one so you can slide a ...

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.
