Advice on Celestron Nexstar

Recommended Posts

I have a Nexstar 8SE, which I am enjoying immensely. The only negative part of the set up is the finderscope, which is a Celestron starpointer. I hate these red dot finders with a passion and would like to replace with something better. So...

First of all, has anyone got any suggestions?

Secondly, does anyone know if a Skywatcher 6x30 finder would fit onto the Nexstar bracket without me having to drill new holes (which I really don't want to do).

My budget is not massive for this so keep the suggestions cheap and cheerful!

Thanks Alan- looks like an interesting suggestion- I can see the circle or crosshairs being an improvement on the simple red dot. I think I would rather have an actual scope though- my sky suffers from pollution and it can be difficult to pick up all but the brightest stars through the glass screen of the red dot finder.
