I use one for astronomy. I mount it on my telescope and use it as a kind of finder scope.
Once you have it lined up correctly it makes it a whole lot easier to point the scope to a specific point in the sky.

Not the brand I have but some of these are crazy powerful.

When those things first came out I went to a star party (gathering of geeks and telescopes in a dark field) and the funniest thing I had seen in months were two men in their seventies battling with their new toys, with both making the "vvvvzzzsssttt--pzzit!" sound effects.

I do the same thing. Invariably someone will ask where in the sky is the scope specifically pointed at and all I have to do is flip it on.
