TVF7500 Takahashi - 7X50 Finderscope
Are you ready to step up to high quality optics in a finderscope? Then the TVF7500 Takahashi - 7X50 Finderscope is for you. Imagine a Takahashi "mini-refractor" mounted on your telescope! Superb optical quality is one of the features of this finderscope with a wide 6.2° field of view. Thanks to 50mm aperture, you'll be gathering 11th magnitude alignment stars with ease. That's two full magnitudes deeper than most star charts!
The overall usable eye relief of the Takahashi 7X50 finderscope is 12mm. For most observers, this won't present a problem, but eyeglass wears might see a slight amount of vignetting of the field. For viewer comfort, the eyepiece screws in and out of the body to focus and locks into place with a knurled ring. Look inside! The Takahashi 7X50 finder has an etched reticule with extremely thin crosshairs that do not obscure alignment stars! If you desire, an optional cordless red LED illuminator is available under our accessories tab.

On every last Takahashi I've owned (13 total, there is one item I can't do without...The Tak 7x50 Finder, w/ or w/o illumination! The optical quality is the finest I have ever encountered and when your trying to find those deep faint fuzzies this is the finder to have! I give it my 5 out of 5 star rating, this is the Finder of Finders!

- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsDoes Takahashi offer a diagonal for its 7x50 finderscope? If not is there a diagonal that is compatible with it?
Does the Takahashi finderscope come with an eyepiece? Will it accommodate plossl 1.25 eyepieces?
Will it work with my celestron SCT finder bracket? That is will it fit inside the bracket diameter being neither too small or too large?
Question by: Gus Alba on Dec 7, 2015 12:53:00 PMTakahashi does not make right angle finderscopes, nor do they make an add-on diagonal that will work, unfortunately. The included eyepiece is threaded on and it is not possible to use 1.25" eyepieces on this particular finder scope. You would need a different finder bracket, as the Celestron finderscopes are smaller in diameter than the Takahashi versions. Please contact us if you have any questions on adapting this to your scope.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Dec 7, 2015 6:28:00 PMHi, Is the knurled locking ring you describe on the eyepiece a new fitting for this finder? I have used a number of these finders on friends' scopes, which all have a knurled ring on the eyepiece, but this is used to adjust the fcus, not lock it. None of those finders had any locking system on the eyepiece. Thank you.Question by: Danny Collins on Nov 30, 2016 3:28:00 AMGood afternoon and thanks for your observation. Once you have achieved focus with the eyepiece you need to hold the eyepiece with one hand and turn the knurled knob down to the body of the scope until it stops. That locks the eyepiece into place.Answer by: Charles Walker (Admin) on Dec 5, 2016 3:54:00 PM
