I like the Orion 6x30 RACI finders, but I don't like their bracket. The bracket is too tall. When I have it on a refractor or Cat, I need to rise from my chair or even stand up to look through a 6x30 RACI in the bracket. Very inefficient. I shouldn't have to do that for a small finder.
Maybe originally they designed the tall bracket for 6x30 straight-through finders. If a straight-through finder is too close to the OTA, you might not have room to place your head to look through them. But then again many red-dot finders have low-profile brackets.
The bottom line is: The 6x30 brackets are just too tall.
Does anyone know of a shorter, low-profile bracket that will fit the Orion 6x30 RACI finders? I'm looking for one that will go into the standard Vixen/Synta-style finder shoes.
Here is the finder I'm talking about, with its too tall bracket: https://www.telescop...nder/p/7211.uts
Here is a typical, standard Vixen/Synta-style shoe for the bracket: https://www.telescop...tail base #7214
P.S.: I don't want to cut the tall bracket and patch it together to make a shorter one.
