    This is a red dot scope. A red dot appears where the scpe is pointing. I feel that this allows more precise aiming. You have to pick a fairly bright object though. Even with that I found I needed to turn the power on and off because the dot overwhelmed the object. It came with several different bases which made installation easy.

    A bad Baader red dot finder

    The frustrating thing about this product is that it
    cannot do what it is supposed to do. It is poorly
    designed.

      Comments about Baader Planetarium Sky Surfer III Red Dot Finderscope:

      This finderscope is the best I've ever seen! You can align it in minutes and it is very precise. The red dot moves slightly if you move your head, but all in all, it has perfect construction.

        Comments about Baader Planetarium Sky Surfer III Red Dot Finderscope:

        This is a great finderscope! The dot is clear and precise and the brightness adjustment is nice. However, there is no way to line your eyes up with the dot consistently. This means that the red dot moves depending on where you place your eyes in relation to the scope. This makes calibration and sighting are a tad more tricky. But otherwise solid construction.

          Baader Planetarium easy to instal and works perfectly. Also, the Celestron 25X100 Binoculars in same order arrived in perfect condition and I can not say enough about them, the construction, the optics all in focus, and the heavy duty tripod is strong enough to allow easy manipulation of the large Binoculars. All three items arrived at the same time and I am perfectly happy.

            The red dot finders are easier than the finder scopes. I have a 10x50 right angle correct image finder scope(RACI)on my telescope but I always go to the red dot finder first if I have a visual on the target. It is just quicker.

            I had to buy the shoe attachment in order to mount it to my scope, but it was worth it.

              I use this red dot finder on my Farpoint FAR-Sight binocular mount. Aligning the finder with the binocular view is quick and intuitive. Once aligned, pointing my binoculars at the right object in the night sky is easy.
