* Cosmetic Blem * Antares 2-Ring 50mm Finder Bracket with Vixen/Synta Style Dovetail Base # F50FB
This is a new Antares quick-release finder bracket with two rings for 50mm finders. While the rings are the same as Antares' popular F50DTB rings, this new item uses a more commonly used Synta/Vixen style dovetail base for attachment to your telescope as compared to the Antares-proprietary style on the F50DTB rings..
Each ring includes three-point screw adjustment for precisely aligning your finder. This bracket can be used with finder tubes 1.2" - 2.2" in diameter. All metal with black matte finish and nylon screws.
A standard Vixen/Synta style base is included (center-to-center hole spacing requirement of 19.4mm). The base will sit on any flat or curved surface, although the hole spacing on this base will not fit SCT telescopes.
- Inside diameter of rings: 61.8mm
- Suitable for finder tubes between: 31mm to 56mm in diameter
- Width of rings: 13mm
- Inside distance between rings: 54mm
- Outside distance between rings: 80mm
- Weight (rings only): 4.8oz
- Weight (dovetail base): 1.5oz
- Made in Canada.

Finder holderPros: Cons: Comments:
Great item. Even though the description says “blemish” I can’t find anything wrong with it. Be aware that this is a short holder and that it not give enough clearance over the main OTA.Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes

This was supposed to be a "blem", but I couldn't find anything obviously wrong with it. Functions perfectly to hold the 50mm Stellarvue finder.Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes

Very well done!Pros: Cons: Comments:
Nice one, perfect size, not the tall high ones , keeping the objects very close to my telescope’s ep. I really like it. Mine came in very good conditions. I would like to summit a picture attached to my refractor.Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes

This was a great price because AgenaAstro considered it a "Cosmetic Blem" because it might have some marks on it. Looks great, works great.Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes

The one I got had a perfect finish with no blems but shorter adjustment screws, which is exactly what I needed for my 50mm finder. Good product, good deal.Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
