FLT 110 & finder scope
Congrats on your new FLT 110 it’s an Excellent scope J
I use the William Optics finder and bracket with mine plus a
Megrez 72 as my guide scope.
- I've been using a Telrad as a finder, and an Orion Express 80 for
guiding, and I was very happy with that combo. Just recently I added a
Celestron C9.25 mounted side-by-side with the FLT-110, and I'm not
sure how things will evolve from this point - the current
configuration has problems when I roll off the roof of my observatory
(rafters are too low, or the scopes are too high...).

I should have no objection to go over the same life from its beginning
to the end: requesting only the advantage authors have, of correcting
in a second edition the faults of the first.

On my FLT 98 Alum. tube,I have the WO 50 mm bracket that mounts to the foucser, I removed the rings and made a bracket that allows me to use a green laser as a pointer. I also use a Stellarvue 50mm right angle illuminated finder and the their 50mm bracket that attaches to the top of hinged rings. The finder is good quality for the price, helical focuser, you can use different eyepieces, it is almost a little telescope on its own. I originally had a straight through finder but found it to be a pain when the trelescope was poining close to the zenith. This setup works pretty well for my needs.
