Product Description

Celestron 950 RACI Illuminated Finderscope

 

  • Celestron right angle 9x50 finderscope makes it easy to find your target when your telescope is pointed toward the zenith
  • Illuminated dual crosshair reticle allows for easy centering of your target; the star cannot hide behind the crosshair
  • Gives a fully corrected image for easy, intuitive use
  • Individual focus adjustment for reticle and the view through the finder
  • Eyepiece assembly can be rotated left and right, making it easy to find a comfortable viewing angle
  • Dovetail bracket allows you to easily attach the illuminated finderscope and remove it for storage.

The Celestron 9x50 Right Angle Correct Image (RACI) Illuminated Finder is a great upgrade to the stock finderscopes found on many Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. The finder has a spring-loaded plunger that pushes the finderscope tube up tight against the 2 adjustment bolts. You can grasp the  bolts firmly between your finger and thumb and pull it straight away from the mount ring that it is threaded to.

 

The 50 mm optics produce bright, sharp images with a magnification of 9X and a 5º apparent field of view. Meanwhile, the right-angle, correct-image design keeps objects right-side up and left-to-right correct, making it easier to locate objects as well as track them as they drift through the field of view. The eyepiece module can be rotated left or right so you can find the perfect viewing angle.

The double-crosshair reticle etched in the eyepiece makes it easy to center an object, whether you are aligning your computerized telescope or finding deep-sky objects on your own. The reticle can be focused separate from the finder itself. A battery-powered illuminator lights up the crosshair with a soft, red glow, and the illumination can be easily adjusted by turning the on/off knob. The Right Angle Illuminator takes 3 LR 1130 batteries.

The Celestron 9x50 right angle finderscope comes with a sturdy bracket consisting of two rings and an integrated dovetail. Adjusting the alignment of the finder is easy with the oversized thumbscrews. The dovetail allows for easy attachment to and removal from most Schmidt-Cassegrain and EdgeHD optical tube assemblies without affecting the alignment of the finderscope.

      I have had a non-illuminated finder scope for several years. It was always a problem to see the cross hairs at a dark site. Hence, the illuminated finder.

      Easy to see the cross hairs. However, the parallax between star and cross hair center is significant. It works, but not very precise...maybe within a few arcminutes. (Posted on 3/18/2014)
