About Tele Vue

• Sol-Searcher is the safe and easy way to find the Sun. It is absolutely safe since you don't look through Sol-Searcher, you look at it. The aperture acts as a "pinhole" which projects an image of the Sun on to the 1/4" translucent "screen." This screen can be viewed from either side. Simply move your scope until the Sun's image is centered on the screen and the Sun will be in the eyepiece's field of view.

The Sol-Searcher attaches to the mount ring slot of every Tele Vue telescope (or to the rear cell slot in the Tele Vue Ranger). For use with telescopes other than Tele Vue, mount the Sol-Searcher using #10-32 screws, or if necessary, attach with Velcro (not supplied).

Sol Searcher can also be made into a quick-release accessory when mounted on QRD-1006 (Dovetail) used with QRB-1002 (Quick-release bracket).

Works as advertised.

I needed a solar aimer for my SolarMax 40. The TeleVue Sol-Searcher filled that need with ease and simplicity. Simply install on the scope with the supplied double sided tape and it is ready to go. Works simply, no adjusment needed and when used as instructed placed the alignment of the scope with the sun within 1 to 2 degrees. Simple, easy and works and at a reasonable price.

Simple, works but isn't perfect

By

from Minneapolis, MN  -  Avid Adventurer

The Sol Seracher works great. It is easy to use and will put the sun in the general vicinity of your eyepiece. Since this is a 0 magnification device, the sun might be a bit off and you might have to hunt a little bit - it nt perfect and is not going to put the sun bang in the center of your eyepeice - but gets it pretty close. I am using it with a Lunt 60 solar scope. Where earlier i had to hunt for a long time to get the sun in the eyepiece, now it is much quicker with less hunting. Also, it is very safe - you don't look towards the sun, but away from it. Mount it with the hole toward the sun and the white screen away from it. and look towards it from the front of your scope.

Great accessory

By

from Jackson MS  -  Casual/ Recreational

The sun's image is projected onto the back circular part. Just move your scope until you see the Sun's image inside the white spot area.

Good, simple design

By

from Savannah, GA  -  Casual/ Recreational

There's only one job for the Televue Sol-Searcher and that's to locate the sun quickly for solar telescope observing. It's easy to use, and fits perfectly on my Televue Pronto set up with Coronado filters for solar viewing.

OUTSTANDING Solar Finder

Always had trouble locating the sun thru my finder scope (Baader filter used of course!!!). NOT any longer. Easy mounting & alignment. Outstanding piece of equipment at a very reasonable price. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
