The Explore Scientific 8x50 produces a wide 6° field of view and allows the precision focus of both the main objective and eyepiece illuminated reticle. This finder now includes the long battery life Illuminator II. A precision polished roof prism produces images that are right-side-up, left-to-right correct. In other words, things are not upside-down and backwards like most viewfinders.

The Explore Scientific illuminated reticle is truly designed for finding objects with its open center (so you don’t mask the object you are centering with crosshairs) and scale markings for 1.5°, 3°, and 4.5° (the edge of the field of view is the 6° boundary). The 55° apparent field, 16mm long eye-relief eyepiece produces a bright 7mm exit pupil and will allow you to find faint galaxies, comets, and nebulae. All optics are EMD Coated to ensure maximum contrast. The illuminated reticle of the 8x50 Viewfinder with its scale markings and open center not only helps you center objects precisely but gives a reference of the exact field of view in degrees. The deep red illumination is continuously variable to provide the desired brightness. 

The long battery life illuminator uses two AAA batteries (batteries not included).
