Baader Sky Surfer V Red Dot Reflex Finder

The Sky Surfer V is Baader Planetarium's premium red dot finder. Made of black anodized aluminum, the Sky Surfer V is an elegant match for any telescope. Its large large clear aperture makes finding objects easy (outside diameter of the SSV is 45mm). As with its smaller brother, the Sky Surfer V avoids the dew problems of other finders, thanks to it's integral (and removable) dewshields. The new optimized visual coatings result in virtually transparent views of the sky (unlike many other red-dot finders).

Each Sky Surfer V now includes Baader's new machined aluminum quick release dovetail system, consisting of an aluminum dovetail riser (mounts to the finder) and dovetail base that mounts to your scope.

Mounting and adjustment of the Sky Surfer V is simple. Elevation and Azimuth adjustment is accomplished by turning the two enclosed adjustment knobs. The red locator dot intensity is adjusted by an 11 position adjusting knob. Attachment to your telescope is also straightforward, with all necessary parts included. Simply attach the machined dovetail base to your telescope, slip on the finder, and tighten the two dovetail clamp screws. Each Sky Surfer includes a replaceable 3V lithium battery for extra long life.

Awesome red dot finder!!!!
I purchased this red dot finder to upgrade the cheap plastic one on my Celestron Nexstar 8SE and I am very impressed with it. The aluminum quick release shoe provided with the finder bolted right up to the Nexstar’s OTA without any mods. The finder mounts securely to the shoe and is ROCK SOLID, keeping the alignment even if removed for storage. The red dot is sharp and the adjustable brightness works extremely well. This finder is a 100% improvement over my old red dot and I highly recommend this unit if you like to star hop.

Will the dovetail mounting system work with
my Televue 85?
Will this work with a Vixen refractor that has the built in finder shoe? NA140 for example.
