I have a Baader Sky Surfer 3, good RDF BUT the battery connection and switch are pretty naff!


Could you recommend a good alternative? (Not Telrad type) Thanks


 


Cheers

That RDf 4 is bl..dy expensive! But I saw Sheila's RDF at WW last meeting so I know they are good!!

Feel free to PM me if all else fails. 


(Didn't realise they were £86 !  Crikey, that is a lot. Mind you it is Baader)

work well and have seven brightness levels although i only need and use the lowest level which is still sometimes a little bit too much, but easy to use and have`nt failed me yet.

i like them Ron, metal so don`t wobble around and reasonable price, fitted on to both of my scopes, i use it once to align on a star near to the imaging target, then once aligned slew to the target and centre it then i use phd to guide, simple and i works for me.
