Solar Finders for Solar Telescopes or Telescopes fitted with Solar filters

The Easiest Way to find the Sun

No tools, No glue, It is held in place by a small adjustable Bungee cord

Takes only seconds to install or remove


  • Set up your solar telescope.
  • Squeeze the cable lock and gently pull it away from the Helio Pod.
  • Slide the Pod over your telescope with the disk without a cross hair, towards the sun.
  • Squeeze the lock and tighten the bungee cord, so the Helio Pod is on the telescope tube. It does not have to be too tight.


  • The hole in the first disk casts a bright spot on the second screen.
  • Adjust the angle of your telescope until the spot in centered on the cross hairs.
  • You may need to add a offset for calibration.
