The unique design of the Tele Vue Starbeam 1x39 Finderscope for Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes (SCTs) offers two modes of use: straight-through line of sight, or 90° angled viewing when the optical tube assembly (OTA) is pointed at or near the zenith. A mirror flips up for a more comfortable viewing angle when the tube is pointed up, and simply folds down when the OTA is pointed more parallel to the ground.

Tele Vue SFC-2009 Overview

The unique design of the Tele Vue Starbeam 1x39 Finderscope for Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes (SCTs) offers two modes of use: straight-through line of sight, or 90° angled viewing when the optical tube assembly (OTA) is pointed at or near the zenith. A mirror flips up for a more comfortable viewing angle when the tube is pointed up, and simply folds down when the OTA is pointed more parallel to the ground.

This scope is configured as an unmagnified finder with a larger 39mm aperture for a wide field of view. In its straight-through setting, you see the natural sky with a 10 arcminute field of view, and when using the mirror flipped up, the sky orientation is the same as when viewing through the scope's eyepiece. A center red-dot reticle helps with precise positioning, and controls allow the brightness as well as blink rate to be adjusted.

Included with the Starbeam is a mounting bracket with slotted holes positioned to accommodate a wide variety of accessory holes found on popular models of SCTs, but mounting screws need to be acquired separately. A dovetail plate on the Starbeam simply slides into the bracket for fast installation and removal. This Starbeam SCT model fits the rear cell of any 8" or larger SCT OTA.
