Hi, on the 10 inch Meade OTA LX200 there is bracket for finders cope and it does not look like a dove tail bracket. How can I mount a dove tail bracket for a guidescope on this OTA.

A 10 inch LX200 without a Focal Reducer is best guided with an Off Axis Guider (OAG) .
That's because a guidescope, even securely mounted on the LX200, will probably introduce Differential Flexture, which will mar your guiding.
And that finder bracket will not be a secure mount.
