If you're looking for a low-profile mounting base for a Multi-Reticle Finderscope, this is it. This will mount to the top of any Stellarvue hinged ring using a single 1/4-20 screw. Some Stellarvue hinged rings have a side screw that is 5 mm or 10-32. This base will also mount there. This base will also mount to the former one piece Stellarvue CNC clamshell ring (not hinged rings) which has been discontinued. use the two supplied 10-32 screws for this. Reflector owners like this base as it will mount to any flat or curved surface.
This base comes with the following harware:
- A single 1/4-20 X 1/2" socket cap head screw for mounting to our hinged rings or top of the SVX080T-3SV solid rings.
- Two 10-32 screws for mounting to a Stellarvue single clamshell ring (discontinued in 2012)
- A 5 mm screw for mounting to the side screws on some Stellarvue hinged rings. Note: If you want to mount the finder to the side hole and the 5 mm screw is too small, use the supplied 1/4-20 screw.
Note: This is for the multi-reticle finders with use a Picatinny rail normally used on handguns and rifles. This base DOES NOT work with the Stellarvue F1001 Red Dot Finder or other plastic red dot finders that use a smaller bb-gun rail.

This low-profile base is just right for mounting the Stellarvue F002 MRF to an ADM 70-45 astronomical binocular. The slot is about 25mm long (and the base is roughly 15 mm high by 35 mm long by 20 mm wide). As usual for Stellarvue, the finish is excellent. (the F002 MRF is also the best available, I believe, as I tried various others firsthand).
Yes I am so happy to FINALLY have a great finder! I find the build quality to be top notch and installing was a snap.
I do not find the lowest setting to be too bright for astronomy and the brightest setting is very visible in daylight.
The up down right left adjustments are very positive and precise and adjusting them for the initial sight in did not disturb the image in the scope.
I am using this on my Stellarvue 70ED and sighted it in using the scope at 140 magnification so the fact that the click adjustments did not move the scope which is mounted on a Dwarf Star mount says a lot.
