The Safe and quick way to find the sun with your telescope when using a solar filter which can be a real challenge without a good solar finder. For a rough alignment, first view the disc of light cast by sun on the back-plate from the front. The red dot visible through at the rear of the finder illuminates when aligned with the sun so this is a very intuitive and easy system.
Altair Solar Finder Scope kit including universal stalk & UNIFBR base to fit most telescopes in addition to simply sliding in many popular models such as SkyWatcher. Precision CNC machined from billet aluminium for accurate alignment and reliability long term.
The finder can also be attached in many ways to a wide variety of instruments with the two slotted holes with M5 bolts (included), ideal for tube rings, clamshells and dovetail bars.
Remember, never view the sun through a telescope without a proper safe solar filter!
