CA Residents: Prop 65 Warning(s)

With its northern and southern polar reference markings, Explore Scientific’s 8x50 Illuminated Polar Finder Scope with NEW long battery life Illuminator (FNDRILLUM-02) allows for quick and precise polar alignments with any equatorial mount. The deep red illumination can be controlled by the variable brightness knob, which also serves as the illuminator’s on/off switch. This finder features a 90° eyepiece, erect image viewing and a 7° field of view. It also offers precision focus of both the main objective and the eyepiece reticle.


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

Compatible with the NEW Hybrid Finder Scope base or the Explore Scientific original finder base -- either the standard base or the T-shaped base.
