Why it allows beginners find the objects more easily
With the red dot finder, locating objects is a breeze. In optical finders, everything is usually upside down and you have to think carefully how to find the
objects. An LED finder lets you stay oriented in the sky.
The reasons it is better:
- it has a projection screen but no optics.
- you see the sky as it actually is.
- very easy to start looking for astronomical objects.
Red dot - dimmable
A rotary switch activates and adjusts the level of illumination so it is just the right brightness for you. You will see a red dot on the projection screen which, when you look at the night sky, looks as if it is floating in it. It is also positioned directly where your telescope is pointing.
The Omegon LED finder! - makes it easy to search for, locate and successfully observe objects.
Our expert comment:
Amateur astronomer Martin Brückner has tested five well-known red-dot finders at the public observatory in Munich. He compared the Baader Skysurfer III (old version), Baader Skysurfer III (new version), Omegon LED finder and TeleVue Quickpoint Basic.
The Omegon LED finder was a clear winner.
"Although the Omegon has a smaller free field of view, its workmanship and fittings are the same as for the Skysurfer, and at about half the price. A clear favourite! "
