Attach two different aiming devices to your Orion telescope quickly and easily with the Orion Dual Finder Scope Mounting Bracket. Many amateur astronomers prefer using not one, but two finder devices to help aim their telescope accurately. For instance, using a magnified optical finder scope along with a non-magnifying reflex sight is very common thanks to the different aiming benefits offered by both designs. Our Dual Finder Scope Mounting Bracket makes it easy to two different aiming devices on one telescope. Since most telescope optical tubes are equipped with a single dovetail mounting base for a finder scope, hobbyists who wish to use two finder devices usually have to consider drilling a fresh set of holes into the telescope tube (and possibly voiding the telescope's warranty) in order to securely attach a second aiming device. Well, back away from the workbench and leave those tools where they are, because the Orion Dual Finder Scope Mounting Bracket lets you use two different aiming devices without having to hassle with drilling holes in your precious telescope tube. Since the Dual Finder Scope Mounting Bracket features two separate dovetail mounting base platforms on a single-stalk bracket, it allows two aiming devices to be mounted on a telescope equipped with a single dovetail base - no drilling required!

One warning. Always check the tightness on the mount before you move the telescope. Mine did come loose once and the whole mount crashed to the floor. Luckily, both finderscopes were not damaged, but you need to be aware of this.
After imaging with it for a year I can say that this works great. No signs of wobble or flexure. It's a convenience item that is almost a necessity.
Only one suggestion: make an adapter specifically for the Tetrad. (I had to drill a hole in Telrad base to mate it to the T).
I bet this is a very typical application.

My Celestron 6" AVX came with a straight-through 9x50mm finder. This can be a real back breaker when using it near the zenith.Read more
