There is usually a battery compartment ON THE FINDER. Look underneath or on the side. Most of these use a small watch style battery.......... larger Red Dot finders like a Telrad ... use AA batteries.

Good morning (in Brazil). I cant find WHERE to place the battery ON red dot finderscope; should it be placed where the plastic insulator is? I cant find a case, or whatever it is.


Most red dot finders use small watch style batteries. Look for something that slides out of the red dot finder and or a port in the side or the bottom.

No audible click from unit, tho a point of small resistance is felt when turning on, and no red dot in finderscope view.


Many of these low cost red dot finder have weak and or defective on-off switches. They break very easily. Best to discard the finder and buy a better one.

Sometimes there can be a plastc tab to take out so as the battery isn't drained while it's in the factory, store etc. just pop the battery out and check.

1. Please read menual proper.You can see live demo through company website also.
2. Start with lower resolution eyepiece.For thet you see the meximum number on eyepice.Than you start first to see moon.Because mon is a brightest obect of the sky 7 easy to find.than you go planet etc.
3.Finderscope is a taegt shooter.Please switch of finderscope.You can see two red dot in the finderscope. Than you aline the object ine sky with two red dot. Move the telescope up to in line(Obeject which you want to see and two red dot).
Now you can see in the eyepice to megnifing image of object.
