Unlock the Night Sky: Explore Scientific 8x50 Illuminated Viewfinder

Precision and Clarity for Serious Stargazers

Dive into the cosmos with unparalleled clarity using the Explore Scientific 8x50 Straight Through Illuminated Viewfinder. Designed for enthusiasts and professionals alike, this viewfinder combines advanced optics and innovative features to enhance your celestial navigation and discovery.

Feature Highlights for Stellar Observations

  • Wide-Angle Viewing: Experience a broad 6° field of view, opening up the heavens for your exploration. From sprawling star fields to distant galaxies, witness the majesty of the night sky in stunning detail.
  • Precision Polished Prism: Our high-quality roof prism ensures images are correctly oriented, presenting right-side-up, left-to-right accurate views. Say goodbye to the confusion of inverted visuals common in traditional finderscopes.
  • Illuminated Reticle with Scale Markings: Navigate the stars with ease, thanks to the open-center reticle and graduated scale markings for 1.5°, 3°, and 4.5°. Perfect for precision targeting without obscuring your celestial object, with the edge of the field of view marking the 6° boundary.
  • Optimized for Faint Objects: The 55° apparent field eyepiece with 16mm eye-relief and a bright 7mm exit pupil is tailor-made for spotting elusive galaxies, comets, and nebulae. EMD Coated optics ensure maximum contrast, pulling the faintest details into view.
  • Variable Deep Red Illumination: Adjust the reticle’s brightness to your preference with the variable illumination control. The deep red light preserves night vision while offering clear reticle visibility, making it an indispensable tool for night-time observations.
  • Effortless Installation and Operation: Featuring a quick-release bracket and the innovative Illuminator II for extended battery life, setup is quick and seamless. Requires two AAA batteries (not included) for many nights of exploration.
