Adopted from its original design used for astronomical telescopes, the Telrad is by many stage lighting technicians to help point spot lights in the theatre.

The Telrad can be employed as the sole or primary sight of a telescope to help you "star hop" using visible stars to find and center objects that would be invisible to the naked eye or in other small finder telescopes. Or, you may choose to use a Telrad in combination with a second conventional magnifying finder telescope.

The gadget is often the choice to replace economical finders sights provided on telescopes such as the Orion model XT-10, XT-8, and XT-6. Most of the big telescopes found at any star-party get-together will probably have a Telrad on it.

The Telrad however is generally not used on smaller, fork mounted telescopes such as the Questar 3-1/2, Maksutov-Cassegrain, or C-5 Series fork mounted Schmidt-Cassegrain, or compact 70mm to 105mm aperture Achromatic and Apochromatic refractor telescopes such as TeleVue and Astro-Physics. Customers who do not need the larger field of view of the Telrad, and seek a more compact sight for use with smaller telescopes may wish to consider our Qwikfinder.
