As many others, I found the position of the little finderscope to be in the way, especially when using short eyepieces and for right-eyed observers. I devised a small finder clamp that retains the finder in front of its adjustable holder, clamping the 45 degrees side, using a 31 x 73 mm piece of 1 mm thick scrap brass, a 35 mm film canister, a piece of broomstick and a woodscrew. Cost was $0,00, weight is under 20 grams. The film canister is placed between the original finder adjustment screws. See pictures attached. clear skies, Sipke Wadman
