Another Weber special. Brian has made this clamp for the guide scope on my new refractor. A design that's proved successful for other members I'm sure. He also added a side plate for the finder. I'm looking forward to trying things out after next weekend.

Guider looks a solid job.
Probably not a good idea to shoot through your diagonal though - straight through is best. However, it does mean you have to be a gymnast if you want to see the camera screen when shooting high up.

Point taken David. Perhaps I'll ask Brian to make a 3 foot extension for my pier ( joking) I'm keen to try things out when I'm back home.
