Telescope Solar Finder
This is a sun finder I designed for my telescope. I use a Telrad finder scope which has a base that mounts permenatly to the telescope. I designed this finder to fit the Telrad base plate. This was some work leading up to the 2017 solar eclipse.
Usage is straightforward: align the finder until the target is covered by the shadow from the front side. Align the white dot to the center of the target and Bob's your uncle.
Reminder: never point your telescope at the sun without a sun filter over it. You can permenantly blind yourself if you don't use a proper sun filter. Also, the heat from sun's light can damage your telescope without a sun filter filter. Don't forget to remove or cover any other finder scopes.
