Space Cowboy Posted February 27 Share Posted February 27 (edited) I recently purchased a 9x50 astro essentials right angle findersope from FLO to replace my Skywatcher 9x50 straight through findersope. Tried the right angle findersope last night and the cross hairs appear way too thick completely obscuring Venus in the evening sky. The optical train is much shorter from the crosshair so I assume this is why it appears thicker. Does the right angle Skywatcher findersope have the same issue? Do I have to look for a much more expensive replacement? For planetary imaging the astro essentials finder is no use with such coarse crosshairs. SOLVED! Sent the AE finder back and got this as replacement. Not tried on scope yet but crosshairs are nice and fine! Only 10 quid more and comes with a shoe! Looks far better quality. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/finders/stellalyra-8x50-right-angled-correct-image-raci-finder-scope-with-bracket.html Edited March 16 by Space Cowboy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
