My ETX-125 purchaser needs a new finder
      #6368636 - 02/10/14 03:40 PM Attachment (17 downloads)

UPS slam dunked a Meade ETX-125 shipped inside a padded hard case and a strong cardboard box.
The original #825 finder & mounting bracket broke. I insured it, but I can't find a replacement. See pics.
Any ideas for a good replacement? I might give him a Rigel QuickFinder, but I'm not sure if UPS will fund a non-identical replacement.

You might consider searching on eBay. I once found a vendor that specialized in parting out ETX scopes.

Due to the fact that that original finder was a piece of junk anyway, I solved the problem by sending my buyer a Rigel QuickFinder.
Now I just have to wait and see if UPS will settle the insurance with me.
