Do they make one? If not any ideas that will work?

There isnt 1 made for this scope.
Ive never felt a need myself for 1.
If you want to add 1  this one should work with little or no modifications.

Finderscope -

I actually have one on my 80 mm. I am using a 9x50 findersope - and it looks great i might add.

My scope is second hand. I have no information on this ring attachment - can't see any label on this assembly.

Here are a few snap shots of the finderscope assembly for my 80 mm APO ED:

You can navigate around and find different angles of the assembly.
