Lacerta Solar Finder

The Lacerta Solar Finder is a good alternative to other similar solar finders like the Lunt Sol-Searcher

The Vixen-style base makes it compatible with many Celestron and Skywatcher telescopes. This includes mainly Celestron Newtonian and refractor telescopes and nearly all Skywatcher telescopes. Other telescopes can be made compatible via a separately available, so called finderscope "shoe".

Below you will see a Youtube video about this product, but it is only available in German language yet.

RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES

Finderscope Distributor - if you have got a red dot finder in a finderscope shoe or maybe even a magnifying finderscope as well and you would like to keep all of them attached to the telescope, you might consider buying a Finderscope Distributor (model KUP3). Please note that the front of your magnifying finderscope MUST be closed when you observ the sun to prevent eye injury as well as damage to your finderscope's optics or eyepiece cover.

This customer purchased the item at our site.
Very solid little solar finder at only 45mm overall length. No instruction supplied but it is obvious that the front black pin hole adjusts laterally and the rear ground glass screen provides the vertical adjustment to align with the telescope. The illustration shows rather large thumb screws for adjustment but the finder as received has neater hexagonal headed bolts which require a suitable Allen key but are not obtrusive like the thumb screws.
My only negative comment is that the base wedge is slightly oversize by 1-2 mm and would not fit into my SkyWatcher finder mount so required some grinding down to fit!

Advantages: Very simple but neat solid device for finding the sun when aligned with the scope otherwise not an easy task when using Badder Solar Film!

Disadvantages: Wedge base slightly too big to fit into SW finder holder - needed grinding down.

(We are checking this with the customer as we tested it on our Skywatcher Dobsonian and it did perfectly fit with a 0.5mm gap...so we have to check with him what exact finder base he's got on his telescope.../ the shop owner)
