After looking around for a cheaper option to mount my lasers together with the finderscope, i finally found it! Mounting Clamp compared to orion laser bracket which you can only use a pen style laser pointer. Finally fulfilled my original intention of why i got into lasers. :beer:

I got the idea from the laser tripods i have seen here. Thanks LPF!!! :worthy:

Nice find. How is the stability. Does it wiggle much ?
For a "zero power" finder it will suffice. You will need to alignment the laser each time you mount it.

It has a knob to tighten the ball screw. It's stable enough that i can turn the laser on and off without moving it. As far as alignment, it's not 100% precise, i have the finderscope for that. The laser gives the convenience of knowing what general direction my telescope is pointing without bending over to look at the finderscope everytime. Having back problems as it is, it does helps alot, for me anyway. That's the reason i went with having both finderscope and laser instead of having to replace one with the other. Laser pointer for general direction and finderscope for precision.
