Red Dot Sight / Scope - RDS DIY

For you digital camera action photographers who have never heard of a RDS, check out this link -
BirdForum - Andy Bright's Digiscoping Forum and BirdForum - Red dot Sight has specific detail on the setup.
The dovetail mount is available in the form of Weaver scope bases which you can find on ebay, or at a sporting goods store. The long single piece mount is the easiest to work with but I have used 2 part (front and rear) bases with concave bottoms to good effect. , and DIY RDS mount with Weaver bases: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review has a photo of my bases. I still have some extras to sell as of the date of this posting.
