I had a thought when looking for a new RACI finder to adress my lack of widefield telescopes, if it was possible and worth the cost to combine finder scope and widefield refractor into one glorious piggybacked telescope!
A. Is there a finder/guide scope good enough for enjoyable widefield visual?
B. Is it worth using a small quality refractor as a finder, lets say an ED60 or other?
C. Would you rather save your money on a budget finder and buy a second dedicated widefield telescope, lets say an ED80 or 100mm triplet?
Looking at A. using one of the 60mm ED guide scopes with helical or a VarioFinder cost run away quickly...
I'm probably not the first to go down this rabbit hole so would love to hear your thoughts, experiences and gear tips!
