If you want to use a 50mm finderscope as a guidescope, you would also need a platform that enables you to point the finderscope at a bright guide star.

(We'd advise to use it only when you struggle with finding a guidestar near your object. Always try to find a guidestar as close to your object as possible for best guiding results.)

This lightweight base can be used for small finderscopes as a flexible mounting base.

Due to its unique design this guidescope mounting base features full one-movement 3D control  for quick alignment of guidescope.

Once object chosen, position secured with one locking handle.

Its clamp features three securing thumbscrews. The clamp accepts standard Sky-Watcher finderscope bracket.

To be secured to the telescope via a 1/4" photo thread.

Attention! The latest version also comes with a small dovetail bar that is also compatible with the Skywatcher finderscope shoe. (no new image available yet...)

Recommended accesories:

There are various ways of securing this mounting base to your telescope. As mentioned above, it now comes with a dovetail bar at the bottom, but if you want to attach it to a different clamp, you might have a look at the below accessories...

One way to do it by attaching it to a EQ3fft Tripod Adapter Plate that then can be held by any Vixen-compatible clamp:

EQ3fft Tripod Adapter Plate for EQ3 mounts

Small Universal Mounting Platform / Clamp

Another way would be to simply fix it to a dovetail bar attached to the top of your telescope. You might have to drill a hole on the dovetail bar, but some dovetail bars have pre-drilled holes on them...Then you would have to find a suitable screw with a 1/4" UNC photo thread...
