I now have the stock red light finderscope that came with the Nexstar 6SE, a Celestron 9x50 RACI (right angle) finderscope that's built like a brick, not sure if I made an error in getting this one over the lighter 6x30 right angle finderscope. I just did not understand why the 6x30 had to be made so tall, or maybe it just appears much taller than the 9x50 raci's... I also bought a Tele Vue sol searcher and perhaps I should have just gotten a small 30 mm solar film filter for the 9x50 finderscope.
I want to eliminate the leaning down part of looking through a finder scope that is why I really want a right angle finderscope. Now that I have all these, where do they go? I had to remove the dovetail mounting bracket that comes on the 6SE where the stock finderscope goes, and now I realize I need 2 longer screws. Am I going the right way about all this?
Not sure why I got this heavy RACI, I thought it would completely lie down on the ota, instead ot's sticking out alsmost as much as I think the 6x30 raci would...
Anyone know how I should proceed here? Should I just resell all these finders, and go with a 6x30 only? I also have some Velcro I just bought thinking maybe I could attach the televue sol searcher with...not sure where yet though.
Any thoughts guys?
Does anyone have a 6x30 Right-Angle Correct-Image Finder by any chance? Perhaps you can tell me how tall it stands? The Celestron 9x50 is 5 1/4' tall by 7 1/4" long.
