Tele Vue Sun Finder. Mounts to Clamshells.

It may sound funny to say you need a finder to find the Sun, but the TeleVue Sol-Searcher makes finding the Sun quick and easy, without any danger of going blind should you look in the wrong direction.

The TeleVue Sol-Searcher is a plastic pinhole finder for lining up solar filter-equipped TeleVue refractors and Lunt solar scopes on the Sun for daytime solar observing. It slips into one of the dovetail grooves cut into the TeleVue and Lunt mounting rings. Hex-head bolts hold it securely in place in the dovetail. It is very light in weight, and you can leave it in place permanently without affecting the scopeís balance. However, you can remove it quickly if its dovetail groove is needed for another purpose, such as mounting a piggyback camera adapter.

The Sol-Searcher has a respectably-sized circular hole in its front plate that lets an image of the sun fall onto its back plate. To use it, you stand off to one side of the Sol-Searcher with your back to the Sun. While observing the position of the Sunís image on the back plate, you adjust the telescopeís position until the Sunís image falls on the circular white panel in the back plate. Once it does, the scope is pointing at the Sun. Itís that simple.

Due to its dovetail mounting design, the Sol-Searcher can only be used with TeleVue-style mounting rings.
