The ReflexSight is a convenient alternative to classic optical viewfinders and illuminated dot viewfinders. You can see the entire starry sky without magnification and not just a small section of the sky.

A new take on a classic design, superior to the usual red dot finder - which will fit many telescopes and larger binoculars.
Explore Scientific ReflexSight LED projection viewfinder, uses proven functionality with versatility, while having enhanced performance features.
Looking through this viewfinder shows multiple deep red target circles projected against the night sky. Both eyes can be used for quick and easy star hopping, in order to target objects in your telescope. The big advantage is that you can see the entire night sky without magnification and not just a small section of the sky, as you would through a magnified finderscope. This makes Goto aligning quick and easy and speeds up acquisition of targets.
New "Multi-Dot" target circle pattern (in standard circle diameters of 4.0 degrees, 2.0 degrees and 0.5 degrees), prevents blocking of stars within the field of view. Using the widths of the projected circles as reference points allows those users with non-goto telescopes to easily work out the location of non-visible targets, with reference to more easily visible stars. The projection screen size is a generous 55 x 35 mm.
Multiple mounting options. The Explore Scientific ReflexSight LED projection viewfinder's base fits standard "Vixen-style dovetail" finder bases, allowing the user to attach this finder to a wife array of commercially-available telescopes, without modifying the telescope itself. A ¼ inch x 20G threaded adapter (photo tripod thread) is built into the finder base, allowing the finder to be attached to a variety of telescopes, via piggyback camera adapters with a photo tripod threaded hole.
Functional design and intuitive use: the smooth housing, with no sharp corners, prevents snagging. Easily accessible battery compartment, taking 2x standard AAA alkaline batteries (not included), which power the frugal LED illuminator. The low power consumption of the LED lighting ensures a long operating time. Large, continuously adjustable brightness control with knurled knob head can be easily operated with gloves. Click the rotary switch to turn off completely. Rear-facing, tool-free three-point parallax knurled collimation knobs, again, easy to operate even with gloved hands, ensure you are well locked-on to the main optical axis of your telescope. The projection screen is coated, to minimize annoying reflections and allow you to concentrate on the finder's target and the night sky behind it. Comes complete with screen and optics cover.
The extremely compact design allows mounting even on small, lightweight telescopes - truly a finder for all!
