This finder telescope actually lets you see many of the deep-sky objects you are looking for.
The Lumicon 80mm Super Finder has a 1.25" helical drawtube-type focuser for easy coarse focusing. Fine focus is achieved by sliding the eyepiece in and out and setting with the thumbscrew. The Super Finder nicely complements any telescope having 8 or more inches of aperture. It also makes for a wonderful, portable, rich-field telescope for beautiful views of the Milky Way. When used with a 1.25" Lumicon Enhanced Aluminum Diagonal, a Lumicon 1.25" UHC (Ultra-High Contrast) Nebula Filter, and a TeleVue 22mm Panoptic eyepiece, the full extent of the Veil Nebula is easily visible (with only 3" of aperture!).
