The quality of Stellarvue products are at the top and this one is no different. I highly recommend this finder for anyone that prefers a straight through viewer.
I received this scope with a modest discount because I declined the included eyepiece and reportedly the paint job was imperfect (I haven't been able to find the imperfection). The finder is a fast (f 3.75) achromat manufactured in China. I was not expecting a lot beyond considerable light gathering and FOV. Stellarvue doesn't even put their name on the scope... not up to their very high standards. I have used it with a televise 25mm Plössl as the eyepiece, somewhat overkill in terms of quality and certainly an upgrade from the stock eyepiece. With that caveat, I have to say it's a fabulous finder and a pretty decent achromat in its own right! Definitely a great bargain at the price. Highly recommended.
Nice finder scope. Light weight and mount works well. Dob needed a light weight finder this did very well.
Excellent build rugged with great optics! I would recommend this to anyone!
