Where can I get a catalog? And has anyone made a correct image finder? I can get my hands on an Amici Prism, but would like to know about any dealers for said parts. Thanks

dunno where you'd get a catalog, but if you have but an old or unused binocular; say a 6x30 or 7x50 then you can unscrew one objective lens and construct something of a finderscope with that. If you attach a 45┬░erect prism you're there. Just a matter of finding the focal length of the lens and attach a tube of any kind...
