No space for red dot finder problem? Any ideas?

Recommended Posts

Iv just tried my new set using the atik 314l+ with a 200mm lens, got it doubled up on a dual mount bar with a finder guider, iv got a red dot finder with shoe only not sure where I can put it, want it to be mounted permanently, rather than taking it on and off, any suggestions with the set up iv got?

hmm its got the dovetail under it the finder is bolted from underneath.

How about if you drill & tap the ali plate, use short screws, then you won't need nuts on the other side where the dovetail is. M4 would be fine, use countersunk screws so the RDF still fits the shoe.
