Folks can anyone tell me if I have clearance for a 50mm RA finder on a 9.25 with a top dovetail plate and 80mm scope?  I couldn't mount the finder on my C8 with a top dovetail.   Thought I would check before I order a RA finder.  Straight through is hard on my old back.  Thanks

Yes, Here is mine with a 50mm finder and rail on top. You can't see the rail, but the guide scope is mounted on it.
