Do you want to accurately put astronomical objects into your camera's field of view? You know, it's really not that straightforward, especially when you are photographing an extended nebula without a telescope. The Omegon finder for SLR cameras now lets you take care of this in a jiffy.

Fits onto the camera's hot shoe
This LED finder fits into the hot shoe of your SLR camera like a glove. Line up on an object and know immediately where your camera is pointing. Many cameras' viewfinders are too dark, and other cameras only have a digital viewfinder. The chance of locating something is very small. The Omegon Hot Shoe Finder makes the world of astrophotographers just that bit easier.
You know just where you are with the red dot
Look through the finder and you will see a background of starry sky. A small red dot seems to float in front of this, showing you what the lens of your camera has in view.
The touch of a button lets you select one of five different brightness levels. Just set it to a comfortable brightness. And, by the way, for daytime photography you can also opt for a brighter green dot.
High quality used for the stars
This LED finder for your camera is ideal for astrophotography. It originally came from hunting technology, and you will notice this immediately - this metal finder is of excellently quality. A 40mm aperture gives you a relaxed view of your target. Astronomy fans have now discovered this quality for themselves. However, astronomers only shoot photos in the sky. And here too, there are a bull, hare and a lion.
Which astronomical objects are suitable for the hot shoe finder?
Large-scale objects particularly suitable for the stand-alone use of your camera. Whether it's the Californian nebula, the North American Nebula or the Andromeda Galaxy: Extended objects for which a telephoto lens is best suited. But of course you have to find them first!
Some amateur astronomers like to photograph objects from the city using an H-alpha filter. You have no chance to finding the object in the camera's viewfinder. But now you have the Omegon Hot Shoe Finder. This is very convenient and, from now on, will save you all time you previously spent in searching.
