I don't blame you for wanting to leave the RDF on the scope. I did the same to mine. I use it alot because I can use it with 2 eyes when aligning the scope. If you use just the RAF you could run into problems on trying to get your scope aligned quickly. But have both type of finder is even better than just 1.

Lumicon no longer makes that particular finder. They replaced it with a newer model that has a shorter dew shield that's all black. I picked this one up for a reasonable discount. The problem was finding proper screws to mount the bracket. Fortunately, my scope store dug into their inventory of parts and found me two black hexagonal screws that were just long enough and the correct thread size to work.

The 7mm Pentax XL EP is my favourite when viewing the Moon and Planets. Wish I could afford more of them...

My garden faces S and there's not too much light pollution so it's ok for a grab and go session. I have to go a mile or so to get a good dark site though...
I was showing off my favourite ep, it works well on the moon and planets and is about the right mag for the conditions most of the time.

Nice setup. I like your dew shield. It looks a lot better than mine.

I can see me buying a heated dew shield soon.

I'd stick with the velcro and save the money towards buying a Nagler.
I like your thinking Starlighter - actually, I am probably going to build my own heaters, should be fun!
