I tried the 3d printed adapter, but did not trust PLA out in the sun to work.  I could have tried PETG, but instead I got this "Farpoint 4" Vixen Style Universal Dovetail Plate" a much more expensive solution but it fastens to the PST with 2 1/4x20 screws and then slides right into the evo mount (no spacers needed)!  May not be the best location for the viewing, but much more solid than the table top mount on top of my mirror making barrel.  Tried it today, but could fined not activity on the sun.

I use this on my SE and EVO Mounts with the PST:

Secures quite well and I've used it to mount my DSLR on the two mounts as well.
