Celestron 9x50 Illuminated RA Correct Image Finderscope
Smoothly align your Schmidt-Cassegrain or EdgeHD optical tube with the Celestron 9x50 illuminated finderscope, which makes pointing as easy and comfortable as possible. Its right-angle orientation reveals a corrected image so you can quickly locate your target object when it is directly overhead, so you don’t need to strain your neck while aligning. Then, use the double crosshair reticle to accurately center and lock onto the object without it being obscured behind the crosshairs.

Product QuestionsI wanted to ask if the Celestron 9x50 RACI finderscope will fit my Meade Classic LX200, using the existing mounting screw holes on the Meade rear cell. I see that Katsumi has already asked about the same question and was answered that it will. However, in my searching for an answer, I've seen reference that the screw hole spacing for the stock Meade LX200 finderscope is 1-1/4" but mine is 1-3/8". Not sure if that's because my Classic LX200 was one of the first 12V units before Meade went to 18V systems. Could you verify that the Celestron 9X50 RACI finderscope base will still fit my Meade rear cell with the 1-3/8" hole spacing? If not, what is the max width of the Celestron finder so I can see if it will fit the original Meade finder rings. Thanks for your help.
Will this fit an older Celestron C8? It's a black tube scope ca 1985. Has tiny finder scope on it now. Don't think it's on a dovetail base, think it might be screwed direct to frame. Unfortunately I don't have it here right now to check.
Thanks a lot.Will this finder scope fit into the same bracket as the Celestron StarSense? (the "large" StarSense bracket).Any issues mounting this great looking RA finder to a MEADE LX90 ACF 12"...? I would love to replace my current finder with this bad boy...
Clear Skies from Arizona!Question by: Mike on Jun 16, 2016 4:44:00 AMWill this finder scope fit on an older model Celestron C-5 spotting scope? The original mounting ring was broken off. It has two screws holding the mount in place. Thank you.Question by: George Larner on Feb 25, 2016 7:32:00 AMIs this illuminated RA Finder mountable onto Mead 8" SCT? If yes, what mounting bracket necessary?Question by: katsumi on Jan 19, 2015 8:53:31 PMKatsumi,
This is Steve from OPT. The illuminated Celestron finder will fit on the Meade 8" SCT
OTA with its' included mounted bracket. You may need to find longer screws because
the base is thicker but those would be very easy to find. If you want to order, please give
us a call and ask for Steve. We're at 800-483-6287. Thanks.Answer by: Steve_T on Jan 20, 2015 10:51:12 AMWhat is the FOV with this Celestron 9x50 finder scope? Also, how much does it weigh and how long is it? Thanks.. BillQuestion by: Marc on Mar 23, 2014 3:30:55 PMYes, the bracket on this finder is designed to fit the rear casting of any Celestron SCT/Edge HD optical tube from 8-14" in aperture. The holes are pre-drilled in the casting and screws plugging the holes just need to be removed and replaced to hold the bracket in place.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Mar 24, 2014 3:39:27 AMI just received this finderscope and got it mounted OK. I was surprised there were absolutely no instructions included, except to show how the batteries were to be loaded in the reticle. I've found nothing at Celestron's website either. Does anything exist that I am missing?Question by: Mike Murtaugh on Apr 23, 2016 9:44:00 AMHaving recently purchased the 9x50 RACI Finder, can you advise:
1) What are the specifications of the three batteries provided - the printing on these are indistinct, and
2) Which way should the three batteries be inserted - positive to the switch end, or positive to the light emitting end. There are no markings on the device, and no instruction sheet.
PatrickHello! Can I remove diagonal from this finder and use it with some additional adapter etc.? How the tube, diagonal and eyepiece hold together in this finder? The tube has standart T-thread or what?Question by: bigol on Dec 12, 2014 10:02:09 PMWhat are the dimensions and shape of the dovetail at the bottom of the finder stalk? Do you know if this will fit into the dovetail base on an Astro-Tech AT8IN?Question by: Dave on Aug 21, 2015 7:33:00 AMUnfortunately, the dovetail attachment for this item is proprietary for Celestron's SCT finder scope bracket. It will not work with an AT8IN. It would recommend looking illuminated finder that can be attached to Vixen shoe finder, like the Stellarvue F050W2.Answer by: Jonathan Cheek (Admin) on Aug 21, 2015 10:57:00 AMQuestion by: Dave1891 on Nov 10, 2014 5:01:47 AMI have an old Celestron Nexstar 4 scope. At this moment it has a red dot Star pointer finder scope. Will this RA CI finder scope fit my telescope?Question by: Robert Odom on Jun 1, 2015 7:16:00 PMRobert.
I think the finder is a little too big for your scope. I have one I use for my 11-inch scope and my
9.25. and it works fine. The 4" Nexstar also does have the correct mounting screws on the back of the tube
the tube like the bigger scopes.
