Orion 70mm Multi-Use Finder Scope - 07220
Orion 70mm Multi-Use Finder Scope
The Orion 70mm Multi-Use Finder Scope is more than just a finder scope. It can be used as a guider, video finder, wide-angle astrograph, or anything else you could think of. Use the Orion Multi-Use Finder Scope as a giant optical finder to grab those faint and fuzzy objects or as a guide scope to track throughout an imaging session. Whether you enjoy visual observations or imaging, this finder scope will work for you!
Since the 70mm Multi-Use Finder gathers almost twice the amount of light compared to a 50mm finder scope, you'll be able to aim your telescope with the help of significantly brighter, more detailed views of starry skies. Six adjustable alignment thumbscrews on the Multi-Use Finder Scope's mounting bracket make it easy to accurately align the finder with your telescope.
In order for the 70mm Multi-Use Finder Scope to reach focus, an 1.25" mirror or prism diagonal is required along with an 1.25" telescope eyepiece (20mm or lower focal length eyepiece is recommended), illuminated reticle eyepiece, imaging camera, video camera, or autoguiding device. With approximately 10mm of focus travel and helical focus adjustment, you'll be able to achieve sharp focus through the 70mm Multi-Use Finder Scope with most combinations of diagonal and 20mm or shorter focal length telescope eyepiece, or diagonal and imaging accessory. (All eyepieces, diagonals, and astrophotography accessories sold separately.)
