Not for astro photo, i do not think so. I like the 50 but never used the 60. It may become a little bit heavy for a 8 se. I now use a orion raci 9x50 and as a finder it is very satisfying
What I was thinking is something that I can use to get a pic of the whole moon, but at the same time it's a finder scope. Something that can pull double duty. What I am asking might not even be possible.

I'm not sure I understand the problem that Kasey described, but you should know that rotating the EP/prism de-centers the cross hairs and can require you to realign the finder to the main OTA. But I have the EP tilted slightly out and leave it in this compromise position.
These finders do work with other EPs but not all others. I've tried it with an SCB-2000 video camera but could not reach focus.

Hey Kasey, cloudy nights are keeping me indoors. I am seriously considering a pier and wedge. A new finder was not in the plan I'll put the SV back on the C5 ; perhaps it's time for a laser.
Hey David, long time no see... My 9.25 is wedge mount and can be a neck kinker using alignment scope and the stellar I had kept losing alignment rotating the EP to use it when scope inverted somewhat,, went to telrad and works for me on Wedge, don't have to have eyeball married to EP LOL.

Would you mind if I asked to see a picture of the locking screws? I'm going to purchase the straight through 60mm SV finder and was interested in using it with a Samsung SCB-4000 video camera and an an imaging camera. It's all experimentation at this point. My primary OTA is going to be a C6 for portability and DSO visual.
