A set of Parallax tube rings or side by side setup with guidescope rings. I sold my Z61 but still have the tube rings....

Get one of these:
It attaches nicely and securely to the finder bracket screws in the Z61 focuser.
Then you can mount the 50mm guide scope directly if you got the one with the small dovetail bar meant to fit into the handle-top WO scopes.
That small dovetail will slide right into the shoe above.

I use the same method as OldManSky as I asked this very same question.
It is a very sturdy setup though not very elegant, I use the WO 50mm and it looks a bit silly but it gets the job more than done.
