Does anyone know if there is a kit to convert a Meade 8 X 50mm straight finder to a 90 degree finder. I would appreciate any info on this matter.

I have never heard of a conversion kit. I know most people just buy an antares 90 degree finder or one similar, it would be cool if there was a kit to make the meade 8x50 straight into an 90 degree finder

I wonder if anyone comes up with a flip mirror diagnol to convert the finder into straight and right angle.
