- Tele Vue Sol-Searcher Solar Finder # SSF-1006
"I can't find the Sun!" Sounds funny. However, the Sun is tricky to find in a properly filtered telescope, and you don't ever want to chance a direct gaze, let alone a magnified image of it.
Sol-Searcher is the safe and easy way to find the Sun. It is absolutely safe since you don't look through Sol-Searcher, you look at it.
How it Works: The aperture acts as a "pinhole" which projects an image of the Sun on to the ¼" translucent "screen." This screen can be viewed from either side. Simply move your scope until the Sun's image is centered on the screen and the Sun will be in the eyepiece's field of view.
The Sol-Searcher attaches to the mount ring slot of every Tele Vue telescope (or to the rear cell slot in the Tele Vue Ranger). For use with telescopes other than Tele Vue, mount the Sol-Searcher using #10-32 screws, or if necessary, attach with Velcro (not supplied).
Lightweight,Easy to Use,Accurate
And this is one of them. The other two are a telescope and a solar filter. The sun is surprisingly difficult to zero in on and this finder just works. Get one. Now.
Compact,Lightweight,Accurate,Easy to Use
I hesitated purchasing the Sol-Searcher for sometime,using other methods to located the sun during setup. I wish I had just gotten one in the beginning, it is small and once setup (literally took 3-4 min), it's accurate and so easy to use - great little device!
