Customer Reviews

Works great! It s simple to install and easy to use. It s fantastic compared to the finder that came with the telescope. However, it would be nice to know if the battery can be replaced. Also, it appears from the pic that you can install it in that slot on the back of the telescope but it did not come with the screw to do so. I found a screw that fit but did not look nice so I put the new finder where the old had been. It comes with 3 different plastic things to connect it to whatever telescope you own. There were a lot of gripes about it not working for long. Common sense: must turn it off when you re finished for the night or I m sure it will only work for three days . After installed, count on spending a few minutes figuring out the knobs on it, same basic idea configuring as the old finder. I am very happy with this purchase! 4Made my telescope useable Didn't realize when buying a telescope how difficult it was to find an object. The included finderscope was junk and impossible to look through without knocking the scope out of alignment. Even finding a full moon in the scope was unbelievably difficult. Even worse, within a few seconds, the moon moves out of range requiring me to find it again. With the laser finderscope, once I got the moon in the center and aligned the pointer, it became a simple procedure that anyone could do. A laser finderscope can be viewed without holding your eye to an eyepiece allowing you to aim the laser pointer at the object comfortably from behind the scope or the side. Now my telescope is useable even for my young children. A laser finderscope is definitely a required purchase for any telescope. 5Best value for a unity finder I stole this for $16 on Amazon with mounting adapters galore. I've had many such finders, this is as good as any I have used including TelRad. Replaceable battery, dimmable laser dot, alt/az adjust screws for easy alignment. In fairness, TelRad has a cool grid projected on the sight, this has just a red dot, but the end result is the same. Much better than standard, cheap 6x finder scope on a mount that is impossible to keep aligned. Nothing more to say, buy it instead of more expensive TelRad, Orion and Celestron unity (0 magnification) finders for lots more money.With regards to simpletons asking stupid questions here rather than doing the most basic of research yourself, if you don't understand what a unity finder is, there is this clever new service called a Search Engine. Type in "telescope unity finder" and actually LEARN what this products does before you complain that you are too stupid to install and operate this very simple and solid product. Hahahahhahaa 5Exactly what I needed for a barn door tracker I recently constructed a barn door tracker and found I needed a better solution for polar alignment than sighting down the hinge or using a straw. This finderscope offered a cheap alternative that works well enough for my purposes. It's clearly cheaply made, but no worse than the finderscope that came with my Orion XT6 Dobsonian telescope.Thankfully, it comes with a handful of plastic bases and connectors to attach it to a number of different (I'm assuming) Celestron telescopes. I wasn't sure what I was going to get since the exact quantity and styles of bases aren't listed here or on any other site that I could find. Even though I was attaching the finderscope to a flat wooden surface and not the barrel of a telescope, once of the bases worked perfectly, and a pair of #10-24 screws were a perfect fit - though keep in mind that no screws actually come with this product.As some others have stated, the red dot itself can be a bit overly bright even at the lowest setting, especially when used to align with Polaris, which is fairly dim in light polluted skies, but it's still perfectly serviceable. Particularly for the price, I'm quite happy with this product. 4Budget-friendly finder I needed a small, lightweight finder for my Celestron FirstScope. I have Telrads on my two larger scopes, but the Telrad would be rather cumbersome on something as compact as the FirstScope. After doing some online searching, I found the Celestron Star Pointer. Lightweight and reasonably priced, I ordered one, figuring for less than twenty bucks, it was worth a shot.The Star Pointer comes with an assortment of mounting bases, one of which fits the FirstScope well. The base attaches to the scope using the two preinstalled screw posts on the scope tube, and the Star Pointer slides onto a dovetail on the base. Two screws on the side of the Star Pointer tightens the dovetail mount to keep the Star Pointer secure while using. Adjusting the single red dot aiming point is easily accomplished via two small knobs on the Star Pointer, and intensity of the red dot is adjustable by the switch knob.Once adjusted, moving the scope until the object desired is under the red dot put the object in the field of view, even using the higher powered eyepiece This makes for much quicker aiming of the scope as opposed to "gunsighting" along the tube, reducing frustration factor during viewing sessions. Finders of this type are among the simplest to use, even for younger viewers, and a worthwhile investment. Unlike small scope finders, these do not magnify or invert the image, and it's very easy to go from spotting what you want with the naked eye, to centering it in the finder (when such objects are visible to the naked eye).The Star Pointer is just as easily removable from the base after an evening of viewing, allowing for safe storage and transport. All in all, a nice option for a good price. 5Great basic finderscope with almost universal fit. This is a great little star finder. Easy to set up, and once aligned it will make finding a specific target 10x easier allowing more time to actually use your telescope instead of spending all your time hunting for your target. I am new to astronomy and quickly finding out that everything is expensive, there's always something else you will want to purchase. You could easily sink 10k in equipment and still have plenty of other items on your wish list. This starpointer was a pleasant surprise, it's affordable and well made for what it is. I recently purchased a used Celestron 114 lcm it was missing the finderscope, this one fit on with only a small philips head screwdriver and took me about 10 to 15 minutes to align by following the instructions included. That night I was able to bring my telescope to bear quickly on whatever object I wanted to look at. If you don't have a finderscope, or aren't happy with the one you have give this one a try. At this price, it's worth the investment. If it works for you it will make up for its price on the first night, if it doesn't you can send it back or keep it as a backup for future use. It comes with 2 or 3 different mounts to allow you to mount it directly onto your telescope. If you don't have a mount or your mount is occupied you can install it anywhere on the telescope and mount it with bolts. I would suggest you try to find a spot that works best for you and temporarily mount it with double sided tape before you commit to drilling holes. There are definitely better, fancier finderscopes but this one will get the job done at an affordable price point. 5Works great! Unlike another one of these red dot finderscopes that I purchased from another company at a comparable price, this one actually works and isn't flopping all over the place with loose parts. This thing is solid (for a plastic finderscope), and the red dot finder makes locking onto stars easier than using a comparably priced standard finderscope. You just align the red dot with what you see in your telescope (daylight targets are easier), and you're good to go for easy alignment of nighttime objects. Easy peasy. Beware of some of the lesser known brands of telescope parts and products, some are okay, but some are lemons. I trust manufacturers like Celestron to deliver quality products. And for the price, you can't beat it. 5Awesome Star Pointer for AstroMaster 114 EQ This is a really awesome, inexpensive star pointer. I used it on my AstroMaster 114EQ to replace the standard one that comes with the telescope. It doesn't mount directly to the AstroMaster 114EQ, but some good heavy duty 1-inch mounting tape will fix it to the tube nicely and wont void the warranty. After a quick alignment of the Star Pointer it made finding objects in the sky a breeze! I highly recommend it! 5So much better! I have a 12 year old 114mm telescope that had a really crappy finderscope. I hated it. There was no way to keep it set correctly, and I just stopped using the telescope due to frustration. I decided I'd check out one of these red dot types, but I didn't want to spend too much in case it didn't really help. It made a HUGE difference. It is easy to set up and use. It stays where its set. It has several mounts to fit different telescopes, but the default mount worked great on mine. The red dot is variable, though I find the highest setting is too bright for my purposes. It has made using the telescope much, much easier. My ten-year-old is even able to use it effectively. I definitely recommend it as an upgrade to the cheap annoying finderscopes with thumbscrew adjustments. 5just works I have an Orion 6 inch Dobson that came with a finderscope. I was having trouble with it, and figured it was user error since this is my first telescope. Then I read reviews here of a lot of folks having similar problems, and this cheaper Celestron getting better reviews. The Orion looks better made but the 2 are very similar. The Celestron looks cheaper, is cheaper, but most importantly - it just works. No problem. BTW I also had no problem fitting it to the Orion equipment. I like my telescope. Now I have a good finderscope to go with it, and that makes a big difference. 5
