The Celestron 9x50 Right Angle Correct Image (RACI) Illuminated Finder is a great upgrade to the stock finderscopes found on many Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. The 50 mm optics produce bright, sharp images with a magnification of 9X and a 5º apparent field of view. Meanwhile, the right-angle, correct-image design keeps objects right-side up and left-to-right correct, making it easier to locate objects as well as track them as they drift through the field of view. The eyepiece module can be rotated left or right so you can find the perfect viewing angle.
The double-crosshair reticle etched in the eyepiece makes it easy to center an object, whether you are aligning your computerized telescope or finding deep-sky objects on your own. The reticle can be focused separate from the finder itself. A battery-powered illuminator lights up the crosshair with a soft, red glow, and the illumination can be easily adjusted by turning the on/off knob.
The Celestron 9x50 RACI Finder comes with a sturdy bracket consisting of two rings and an integrated dovetail. Adjusting the alignment of the finder is easy with the oversized thumbscrews. The dovetail allows for easy attachment to and removal from most Schmidt-Cassegrain and EdgeHD optical tube assemblies without affecting the alignment of the finderscope.
Please note - although there are three tapped holes only one retaining screw for the eyepiece is included and required

Beehive Cluster was excellent what an entrée What can I say about Ed, Harrison Telescopes Ltd, easy to talk too, best prices, best delivery price and on time delivery?

Impressed! Being unable to get my 70yr old neck in a position to find anything up high with the red dot finder supplied with my scope I found this one was within my budget. I have just zeroed it in on a tree about 3 miles away, beautifully clear image and as easy as using my scope eyepiece. Just WOW! (01/06/2018) Barry Weston - Antony, Cornwall
Excellent product and prompt service I purchased this finderscope to fit on my home built Newtonian telescope and I think the mounting plate could be made more versatile but ten minutes with my Black and Decker solved that problem. In use the finder-scope has proved excellent with pin point stars and easy adjustment (22/01/2018) -
Celestron 9x50 RACI right angled finderscope Best price I found online and very helpful. Updated my celestron 9x50 straight finderscope to this right angled finderscope for my celestron cpc800 it's a lot easier on my old neck and very well made should have bought one years ago (23/06/2017) Martin - Jeffery
Great Finderscope Celestron don't include any instructions but several good tips from other users, thanks to Google, made it easy to fit the scope to my 8SE. Main focus is with the ring on the front lens and the eyepiece focuses the crosshairs. Good views so far although only in the day time and no more neck ache. (23/05/2017) Niall Reilly - Cheshire
