    Okay, Seriously love my Orion SkyQuest-XT6, but about to file for divorce with the cheapo finder. I just don't know what kind of finder I want next, or if maybe different finders equal different finds. Who knows? I am considering either or both:
    My "come with" finder, was dropped before the batteries were even installed, and it's pretty useless. I sight down the scope like a pirate aiming a 14th century canon and start out with a 25mm or a 40mm. So I don't have any real experience with a finder at all.

    Get one of these and have the best of both worlds.
