Best finder I've used.

By

Easy to mount and align. Compact and lightweight, with a small footprint. Brightness is easier to adjust than the Telrad that it replaces (the Telrad died from corroded batteries). My only concern is the quality of construction. The mount mechanism and the battery compartment fit VERY tight and require a combination of force and finese.

Great product for your telescope!

By

After doing some research, I took the plunge and bought the Rigel Quikfinder to replace the red dot finder on my Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ telescope. Installation was a snap, and setup/alignment didn't take long. The first object I pointed it to was Jupiter, and when I looked in the scope eyepiece, BAM Jupiter was smack in the middle! Next, I sought out Rigel and Mintaka (leftmost star in Orion's belt) and had the exact same result. Highly recommended!

Don't Leave The Galaxy WIthout It

By

Almost every telescope needs an aiming device. Easiest to use are the "zero" power versions. Compared to the Telrad, the Rigel Quik Finder is far lighter and compact, and costs a bit less. In contrast to various finders adopted from air rifle sights, the Quik Finder needs no tiny hex keys either to mount or adjust it. That's particularly important when working in the dark.While one centers a "guide star" in the middle of the smaller of two concentric projected red rings, which is half a degree, the size of the moon, beyond that the outer two degree ring facilitates "star hopping," from a known star, to a typically naked eye invisible "deep sky object." Its variable illumination also helps, as does the adjustable blink rate, especially when trying to use fainter guide stars.For centering your telescope's field of view over star clusters, nebulae or even galaxies, a Quik Finder works well. Don't leave the galaxy without one!

This is a very nice little unit with all the features you would want, especially for the modest price.
