    Default Explore Scientific illuminated Finderscope for Explore Scientific triplet ED127



    The stalk is too short to allow easy use. Does anyone have a work-around?
    I ended up purchasing the right angle version supplied with ED152
    Strangely it is not bright enough to clearly see graticule
    Does anyone else have same problem

    I have one for my ES ED80. So far, I haven't needed the illumination. Personally, I will never buy a straight through finder ever again. That is just asking for a literal pain in the neck.

    I agree with Dave, I replaced the original ES finder scope that came with my ES127 ED/APO with a Orion 9x50 right angle finder scope and have never used the straight through finder scope again...
