    Default Finder scope fitted onto Spotting scope! Easy finding now!!!



    Hi all,

    Pretty hard getting spotting scope lined up with target,
    So,
    Had an old finder in the cabin and decided to fit it to the spotter.

    Little bit of shimming and some black insulating tape, (saved making a wrap-around bracket)!
    And lined her up with the OTA and there is the target in the EP every time.

    Caroline delighted when she arrived home from work, short searching for her now on the bird watching! :-)
    And me on the planets! :-)

    Here,s the result,

    Cheers,

    Steve,..
