TPO 8x50 Right Angle Finderscope
with Quick Release Bracket and Base
Upgrade your existing finderscope with this TPO 8 X 50 right angle, image erect finder! The white finderscope sports optics with a 50 mm diameter for better light-gathering than a 30 mm finderscope, and the 8X power allows for a wide field of view while increasing the magnification to eight times more than your eyes can see. The right angle feature of the TPO 8X50 Finderscope lets you look down into the finder's eyepiece rather than straight through the barrel. Most people find this arrangement more comfortable on the back and neck, especially when looking at objects that are at or near zenith. Also, the TPO 8X50 Finderscope offers a correct image, which means objects will be right-side up. That is good news for those who wish to use their finderscope terrestrially.
The TPO RAIC 8X50 Finder comes with its own single-ring bracket. Two over-sized thumbnail screws and one spring loaded positioner for quick and easy alignment. The base of the finder slides into the included base and locks into position. It is easy to remove the finder and bracket from your telescope when you put it away for the evening. Just slide the bracket out of the base, lock the thumbscrew back down so you don't lose it, and store the finder & bracket in your telescope accessory case.

Product QuestionsQuestion by: Ray Culp on Feb 5, 2016 2:27:00 PMRay,
I've been trying to find an adapter for the TPO finder but they don't really fit too well with the shoe on that bracket. I would just get the SV-R50E bracket for hinged rings. That will fit your hinged rings. We do have them in stock also. Please give me a call at 800-483-6287 and I can help you with it. Thanks.
SteveAnswer by: Steve Thornton (Admin) on Feb 5, 2016 5:41:00 PMQuestion by: Nick on Jan 3, 2017 8:28:00 PMUnfortunately, no. The hole pattern on the quick release does not match the hole pattern on the SCT. You will also need to purchase the Orion 7215 SCT finder base: https://www.optcorp.com/orion-sct-finder-scope-base-7215.html to allow you to attach to your scope, and the base that came with the finder can be used on a refractor or Newtonian with a narrower hole spacing.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Jan 4, 2017 8:41:00 AMQuestion by: Dennis on Dec 30, 2015 9:05:00 AMUnfortunately, no. The ring on the ETX 90EC is only for 21-25mm diameter finderscopes, so there is no way to attach a 9x50 finder in the same ring. There is no real way to attach a larger finder without modification of the ETX 90EC (adhesive, drilling holes, or machining an interface adapter).Answer by: Chris Hendren on Dec 30, 2015 2:00:00 PMWill this finder scope attach to the finder bracket that comes on Orion dobsonians without modification?Question by: Logan on Jun 4, 2016 7:20:00 AMThe TPO 8x50 RA Finder will fit the Orion 50MM Finder-Brackets. Additionally, the finder includes both a compatible finder-bracket (which fits the Vixen-style finder-bracket shoe that Orion uses). Furthermore, the finder also includes a Vixen-style finder-shoe that can be bolt-mounted to the telescope, if one does not have similar already installed.Answer by: Eric Blackhurst (Admin) on Jun 7, 2016 1:13:00 PMQuestion by: michael graham on Sep 25, 2015 6:38:00 PMWill the base work direct with a Celestron Evolution 9.25" SCT without any mods or aftermarket screws to bolt on to the OTA?
