How to Align the Star Pointer Finderscope
The first time you use your finder, you need to align it. This one-time setup procedure should be done during the day. Take the telescope outside and find an easily recognizable object, such as a streetlight, car license plate, or tall tree. The object should be as far away as possible, but at least a quarter mile away. Move the telescope left and right or up and down so that it is roughly pointing at the object. Look through the telescope using your low power eyepiece and move the telescope until the object you chose lies in the center of the view. Once the object is centered in your eyepiece, turn on the red dot. With your head positioned about a foot behind the finder, look through the round lens of the finder and locate the red dot. Without moving the telescope, use the two adjustment knobs located on the side and underneath the finder. One controls the left-right motion of the dot. The other controls the up-down motion of the dot. Adjust both of these until the red dot appears over the same object you are observing in the eyepiece.

Starpointer pro finderscope Better for the beginner, but i had to use the fittings off the original mount to secure it to the scope, great advice and great speedy delivery from Harrisons. (10/08/2018) Tony C - Cheshire
Versatile large screen reflex finder An extremely versatile reflex finder capable of fitting a large variety of telescopes and capable of fitting onto binoculars with 1/4" thread or central support bar with the Celestron reflex sight rail. The red circle reticles are clear and bright and fully adjustable in brightness in strong light. (13/04/2018) David High - Norwich
Good build quality, Ok product. For the money this is very high quality. The finger screws are much easier to use than the universal's hex screws but the double circle sighting is not a accurate as the dot on the cheaper model and moves very slightly if you move. Build quality and wide viewing makes up for the slight inaccuracy. (26/04/2017) Mr Smith - Bristol
