Select an object on the chart and note its position among the visible stars. Then set the position among the visible stars. Then set the Telrad rings on that spot in the sky. A quick rough setting will put the object in the field of a finderscope. With no finder, or a faint object that won′t show, use a more careful setting to put the object in the field of the telescope.

The Telrad is 8 inches long. weighs 11 ounces and mounts on any telescope without drilling holes. It unlocks from its base for separate storage.

The Telrad  is a 1 power reflex sight.  Look through the Telrad and move the telescope until the red illuminated rings are centered on the object.  Fast, easy and foolproof.  This accessory takes the pain out of finding celestial objects.  Recommended for beginners through advanced astronomers.  Included are 2AA batteries which will power the Telrad an amazing 500 hours.

The large ring is 4 degrees across. It outlines the area covered by a finderscope. The small ring is 1/2 degree across and outlines the area seen in the telescope.
