scope that will be used on the VSC/ SAO/ BGRP 127mm f/9.4 refractor is a GSO
8x50mm unit taken from a 12" f/5 Antares Dobsonian Reflector. The finder scope
was given to me by my colleague Gary Barabino. The unit is all metal
except for the star diagonal and eyepiece housings. All optics are fully
coated and produce a very good image. The field of view is adequate, but
the crosshair appears a bit blurred and out of focus in the FOV. But, this is not a major issue. The
unit will be reconditioned and refinished in Vega Blue (Sail Blue
Rustoleum spray paint).
