After initial difficulty in aligning the telescope, the staff were very helpful in sorting out the problem. The finderscope is very accurate and makes alignment very simple.
Nice finderscope, very good quailty. Was not going to put the cheap red dot finder scope on my Evolution 9.25 Cassigrain. Love the Illuminated cross hairs and the right angle find means no getting into straining positions to find anything. Nothing beats a good optical finderscope, and this one is compact and solid. One compliant people go on about is no instructions, but it's straight forward did not need instructions. A great buy, and I bought this alongside my Celestron 9.25 and got it very quick, as well as outstanding service.
Small angle deviations in target alignment translates to several light years of error. The finderscope is a great accessory to replace the stock red dot alignment device that comes with the Celestron SE 8. Installation was somewhat problematic as there was no accompanying manual and no information on the Celestron website, but not difficult to figure out. The optics are excellent and the illuminated reticle has a crisp projection. The construction is high quality. A recommended accessory if you want to avoid a hard nights work of images go to waste.
