Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Exactly what I expected. It helps that it is a correct view finder scope if using it for solar. If you're limited on funds and you already have a finder scope than I would suggest just getting the solar filter instead of both.
My only real complaint is that one of the plastic orienting screws was broken in half when it arrived. I went to Lowes or Home Depot and found the correct thread screw to fit it instead of waiting on Orion to ship me another one. A pack of two metal screws that fit the thread was only a dollar or less.
The finder is strong and practical. But the solar filter have a case made from something that looks like "paper" and is fragil it should be made from a better material
