Baader Planetarium Sky Surfer V Finderscope with Quick Release Dovetail Bracket
The Sky Surfer V is Baader Planetarium's premium red dot finder. Made of black anodized aluminum the Sky Surfer V is an elegant match for any telescope. Its large clear aperture makes finding objects easy (outside diameter of the SSV is 45mm). As with its smaller brother the Sky Surfer V avoids the dew problems of other finders thanks to its integral (and removable) dewshields. The new optimized visual coatings result in virtually transparent views of the sky (unlike many other red-dot finders).
Mounting and adjustment of the Sky Surfer V is simple. Elevation and Azimuth adjustment is accomplished by turning the two enclosed adjustment knobs. The red locator dot intensity is adjusted by an 11 position adjusting knob. Attachment to your telescope is also straightforward with all necessary parts included. Simply attach a base to your telescope slip on the finder and tighten the two dovetail clamp screws.
Three bases are included.
The short base works best for large tubes. It includes two mounting slots (for screw mounting) and may also be attached with double-sided foam tape (supplied).
The taller base fits smaller diameter tubes (as well as large tubes using the included spacer plate) and the slotted holes accommodate the factory hole pattern of popular SCTs.
The third base fits the Vixen finder dovetail standard used on many import refractors. Each Sky Surfer includes a replaceable 3V lithium battery for extra long life.
Each Sky Surfer V now includes Baader's new machined aluminum quick release dovetail system consisting of an aluminum dovetail riser (mounts to the finder) and dovetail block that mounts to your scope.
