A few more things came today before Christmas

Post by skyhawk »

A few more things came today before Christmas, and the telerad is larger than I expected, remember NOT all red dot finders are telerads, telerad is a specific make.

If anyone is considering getting a TELRAD 1. The on off switch is also the "dimmer" it has almost NO travel from bright to nothing, less than 1/8th a turn, 2. It is massive, unless you are American where all scopes are large, forget it.

Looks like your gearing up nicely.
The Telrad is still the best red dot finder. I have bought my first one back in the 90s and I would be lost without it.
