Telrad finder and right angled finderscope fitted

Sign in to follow this  


After my experience with the standard finderscope on my 200P Sky-watcher and you having to either bend over the scope when looking low or crouching down on the floor when almost high vertically I ordered a right angled finderscope (https://www.firstlightoptics.com/finders/skywatcher-9x50-right-angled-erecting-finderscope.html)

Now fitted I can see its going to be so much easier pointing the scope and its also the "right" way around so up is up and left if left

With the finderscope fitted it was time to see where best to fit the telrad finder I had bought

I had read other had fitted these and used 2" or 4" risers so the finder sits higher on the scope so I decided to get a 4" riser

I tried a few locations before fitting the telrad finder in the only location that's suitable and as its only stuck on with adhesive strips I've also cable tied it down

Sorry about the pictures there not very clear

Hi Paul, I had the same as you, both RA finder scope and a Telrad on my scopes, I found the Telrad to be far better so removed the finder scope as I wasn't using it, (a tip I was given regarding the finder scope is to keep both eyes open when looking through it.)
