    8x50 Erect Image Illuminated Finder Scope (Straight Viewing) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fine Finder Scope I am very impressed with the construction and operation of this instrument. I did have one issue with the illuminator - It seemed to use up the battery power rather quickly, so I purchased new batteries. When I went to replace the batteries I found that a wire connecting the circuit board to the battery contact was broken. This was the reason that the illuminator was not working. I had to replace the illuminator. Other than this issue the Finder Scope has worked perfectly.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not live up to the Explore Scientific quality Purchased this finder scope to go with my Explore Scientific ED127CF scope. Overall I was disappointed with this finder scope. Both finder scopes (original one and replacement one) had dust in the eyepiece which seemed to materialize as I focused the reticle for first time use. It was almost as if something was shaving off into the eyepiece. B&H was fantastic about taking back both finder scopes - a very easy return process. Explore Scientific was fantastic as well when I notified them of the problem after the replacement scope had the same issue. They implemented a QC program of their inhouse stock - which I thought was awesome. They also offered to take the scope and fix it at no charge; however, I declined as I had lost confidence in the finder scope. I don't think my bad experience with the Explore Scientific finder scope is indicative of their overall quality. I have the Explore Scientific ED127CF scope and the 82deg eyepieces - both of which have very clean and fantastic optics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely buy this product again! Explore Scientific has really made a great finder scope here and it is a nice match for my ES AR152mm scope. Very solid and a sleek look. Very nice magnification and illumination.
