TPO Red Dot Finder with Multi-Reticle

The Third Planet Optics Red Dot Multi-Reticle Finder offers quite an improvement over the typical plastic red-dot finder found on many telescopes. A variable brightness red LED projects four different target patterns at the flick of a switch, and the reticle can be adjusted in brightness in seven increments for practically any application. The optics of the TPO Red Dot Multi-Reticle Finder are coated for improved transmission, and features durable and attractive black anodized all-aluminum construction. This Red Dot Finder is suited for astronomy, bird watching and target shooting.

A nice upgrade
I replaced the stock red dot finder on my Celestron Nexstar 8SE and the difference is very noticeable. The coated window is nice and clear, much better light transmission than the stock finder or even a Telrad. I had no problem swapping the standard finder on my 8SE with this one. The build quality is really good, and the alignment stays locked in very well. As is, I really like this finder compared to the stock 8SE finder; I do have some suggestion for improvement for astronomy use though. 1.) The brightness settings could all be dimmed quite a bit; out at a dark site, even the dimmest setting is a bit overpowering. 2.) Change the reticle choices to suite astronomy, it would be much more useful if there was a two-degree circle with a center dot, instead of the circled cross hairs option. 3.) Include a metal stalk, the plastic one included flexes a lot, and does not match the build quality of the finder or dovetail. If you you really want to make this finder great, add a pulsed LED option and 5 min. auto off feature. I'd probably pay $100 for this finder if it included all these improvements!

Wonderful finder
This finder scope is about the best you can get. Everything about this is perfect. I have a Mead 10 inch Light Bridge. I was able to find Stevens Quintet so easily with this instument. I would recommend this to anyone with a large telescope.

Mounting
The mounting provided is not interchangeable with standard finders on Celestron SCTs. It is necessary to make an interface to fit the screw spacings on the scope.
