It may sound silly, but it is quite hard to find the sun with a telescope.  You can't dare risk a direct look.  The Sol Searcher functions as a projector, with its aperture acting as a pinhole to image the sun towards the eyepiece.  You actually look away from the sun, at the translucent screen, to find the sun.  Completely safe and easily aligned to your scope.

                I purchased this product to make it easier to aim my 70mm refractor scope with a glass filter. The Sol-Searcher was attached with double sided sticky tape. I can now get on target in a few seconds.The provided adjustment is slight, but was plenty to provide desired results.

                    Just line the spot of sunlight up with the white dot, look through your scope and there is the Sun.

                      Slimple idea that saves time, neck and eye.

                      You have to buy the bracket specific for your telescope if is not televue.

                      But I used velcro instead.
