TS-Optics 80 mm right-angle finder scope with 90° Amici prism and 1.25" helical focuser
The TSFRE80 ist far more than a finder, it is a full-fledged wide field refractor. Many hundreds of deep sky objects are already visible through this super finder. It truly deserves this name, as finding celestial objects is really easy.
Of course, application is very versatile. Besides the use as ultimate finder, the refractor can also be used as travel telescope and as spotting scope for observing the countryside. You can use many 1.25 eyepieces and thus vary the magnification in a wide range. But the finder can also be used as guiding scope, together with specific autoguiders.

The adjustable tube rings have metal screws with plastic tips to avoid scratches on the tube
The finder scope fits to standard finder shoes like the ones used by Skywatcher, Celestron, GSO, etc.
- A finder base for flexible adaption to telescope tubes is supplied
The focus of the finder is approx. 5 mm above the 1.25" receptacle of the focuser. That is enough for many eyepieces like Plössl eyepieces.
The finder is also suitable for autoguiding, but the autoguider must have a 1.25" housing, otherwise you will not reach the focus.
