TeleVue Sol Searcher Sun Finder

"I can't find the Sun!" Sounds funny. However, the Sun is tricky to find in a properly filtered telescope, and you don't ever want to chance a direct gaze, let alone a magnified image of it.

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 Televue telescope (or to the rear cell slot in the Televue Ranger). For use with telescopes other than Televue, 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 Quick-release bracket .
