Some more difficult then others. If there is no need to keep the original finder then I suggest the method I use. I wanted a way to mount the finder with no possible modifications to the ETX so I came up with mounting the Daisy sight onto a 1" wood dowel 4.25" long. I made a small flat area on the dowel so that the finder would sit securely. I used flat black paint to make it look nice, then used small zip ties to secure the sight to the dowel. When attached to the scope, the finder sits up higher making it easier to look through and align. The picture below shows the finished product. You'll be happy using this setup. Any questions feel free to email me at Kattomm@mysfcu.net.
