I'm looking to calculate the parameters of the Q3.5 mirror finder in more familiar terms. By that I mean most finder scopes are shown as 6x30 or 9x50, etc. So how can I relate the Q finder to that? It will depend on the eyepiece used (and the Q barlow if employed).
On my early quartz-mirrored Q3.5, I don't think I was able to use the Q's Barlow with the finder (wouldn't come to focus). I haven't tried it with my Q7.
