The Celestron Finderscope Starpointer Pro is designed to fit on any Celestron telescope, allowing you to spend less time getting on target than regular spotting scopes, partly because of the field of view from 1X magnification. While a bright red dot can obstruct your desired target, StarPointer Pro projects two circular LED reticles. Just place your target inside the circles and it’s ready to view in the eyepiece. The circles also serve as a measuring tool while star hopping. The StarPointer Pro has a 40 mm optical window; a larger field of view than is found in most red dot finders.
In addition to illuminated bulls-eye rings, instead of an illuminated dot, the StarPointer Pro is step up in design from the regular Celestron Red Dot Finders, with a better range of motion, smoother controls, and a more insulated battery compartment. The StarPointer Pro attaches quickly and secures with a dovetail connection and finger knobs, so you won’t have to always have a screwdriver handy (as is the case with the regular red dot finder). It uses a commonly found CR2032 battery (included) to power the illumination. The StarPointer Pro also comes with four different mounting attachments to make it easier to attach to whatever telescope that you’re using.
