Telrad 1001 overview

  • 1Description

Invented in the 70's the Telrad Reflex Sight was the first of a new kind of finder available to amateur astronomers. Outfitted with a generous 2.5x1.4" viewing window it provides a wide unmagnified true view of the sky — unlike conventional finder scopes that offer limited fields of view presented upside-down and backwards. Three concentric rings — spaced at 4°, 2°, and 0.5° — provides an easy point of reference for locating objects and quick navigation when manually star-hopping. An easy-to-use, infinitely-adjustable rheostat enables precise brightness control so users won't hurt their night-adjusted vision. A mounting base is included, and the sight easily detaches from it for storage or to move it to another OTA with a separate mounting base already attached without requiring it to be re-centered with the OTA.

  • Wide unmagnified field of view
  • Generous 2.5x1.4" viewing window
  • Long eye relief
  • Zero parallax
  • Provides uncluttered, correct 'real sky' view for quick manual sighting of known objects like planets, stars, clusters, and galaxies
  • Red illumination makes reticle clearly visible without affecting night-adjusted vision
  • Three concentric circles set at 4°, 2°, and 0.5° to help 'star hopping'
  • Infinitely-adjustable rheostat allows for precise illumination control
Use and Handling
  • Quick detachment from mounting base enables it to be removed and installed quickly without re-calibration
  • Runs on two user-supplied AA batteries
  • Weight: 9 ounces without mount

    Telrad 1001 reviews

    Reflex Sight with Mounting Base is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Finder Telrad is a better way to find visible objects in the sky like planets and bright stars. During polar alignment this device is the best option than any finderscope. You can easily see your target star because youre practically looking an erect image of unmagnified sky with a clear targeting guide infront of you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from #1 finder for dobs If u have a large scope, or any size dob for that matter, this is the best finder for your scope. I used it all, red dots, green laser pointers, this is the best of all of them. And quite cheaper than the others. Stop thinking about it, and get you one. You will not be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got me there with both eyes open. I used it for the first time last night and its performance was amazing. I spent more time observing and much less time pointing. Best purchase in a long time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent point and see finderscope I should give it a five but it is a bit large for the celestrion 127 but still no fuss no muss finding what you want.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does it's job and does it well I had read a lot of reviews about this sight and a lot of them were very good. Since the finder on my primary scope had failed, I decided to give this a try. I was not disappointed. Out of the box I noticed how large this was. Made from plastic, it is quite light for it's size. The mount is also plastic and has 2 locking screws that hold the sight in place. The mount attaches to your scope with 2 pre-attached pieces of sticky tape (3M?) There are 2 pre-drilled holes for screw mounting, but no hardware included. Don't worry about exact alignment as the sight can be adjusted to compensate if you're a little off. The top of the sight slides off (forward) to expose the battery box. It runs on 2xAA. The on/off switch is on the side and adjusts intensity as well. There are 3 adjustment knobs on the back that center the sight. No learning curve, easy to use. It projects a triple ring on the sight glass, which I find waaaay easier to use than a red dot. 2 issues I have with this sight. First, the sight glass fogs up as well as the projecting lens. Have not tried the available dew guard. Second, and maybe a major issue; one morning I came home from work to find my sight on the floor. The double sided tape had failed. At first I thought I didn't clean the mounting surface good enough. After a quick inspection I found the tape separated from the mount side, not the scope side. Hmmm... Maybe the changing temps over night? Not sure, but now my sight is stored off the scope. Just lucky it didn't break. The tape failure is the only thing keeping me from giving this a 5 rating. I would screw mount it, but I'm not drilling into my refractor. Don't need metal flakes floating around in there.
