How to use a red dot finder:

  • First of all pull out the clear plastic
    sheet that is at the front and on the bottom - you can see this in one
    of the photos. This allows the battery to make contact so that the red
    dot appears when you switch it on.
  • Next, try the finder by switching it on
    with the small rotary control on the side. Look through the hole at the
    front of the finder and you should see the red dot and be able to make
    it brighter or dimmer by using that rotary control which is also the
    on/off switch.
  • Now set your scope up as normal but put the red dot finder on instead of the usual optical finder.
  • Point your telescope to something like a
    TV aerial or a chimney - anything about that size will do, and the
    further away the better. Looking through a low power eyepiece (25mm is
    ideal) find the object by adjusting your telescope and focus the object.
    Adjust the mount using the slow motion controls so that the object is
    right in the center of the view.
  • Adjust the finder so that the red dot
    is exactly on the object you were looking at. You can adjust it by using
    the two larger wheels. The one on the right at the front does the
    left/right direction and the one at the back on the bottom does the up
    and down.
  • Switch it off and wait until dark
  • You now use it by switching the finder
    on, then looking through the finder so that the red dot lines up on to
    the target you are going to observe through your telescope. Once the red
    dot is exactly over the star or planet it should be exactly in the
    center of your eyepiece view.
  • Remember to switch it off once you have found your target to save the battery.
