The Orion 8×50 Right-Angle Correct Image Finder Scope has a big, multi-coated 50mm objective lens assembly and provides 8x magnifying power. Its field of view is 5.5 degrees and it offers single crosshairs for easy, precise centering of objects.
The aluminum tube has a gloss black finish on the outside and is painted flat black on the inside to prevent internal reflections. The rotatable front cell holds the objective lens assembly and acts as a dew shield. It is cut internally with baffle threads to prevent reflections and ensure excellent contrast.
The Orion 8×50 Right-Angle Correct Image Finder Scope comes with a cast-aluminum bracket with a dovetail foot that fits the finder scope base on most Orion telescopes. Alignment of the finder scope with the main telescope is easy and intuitive by virtue of two perpendicular nylon thumbscrews and an opposing spring-loaded pin.
The finder scope’s focus can be adjusted by loosening the knurled lock ring just behind the front cell, then rotating the cell either way as needed until focus is reached. The lock ring is then retightened against the cell.
