I'm getting rather frustrated trying to compose without being able to see where I'm pointing, as I'm once again attempting narrowband imaging. I think I've seen them before, little optical viewfinders that fit in the hotshoe. Can I find a cheap one? No! Anyone know of some cheap-ish ones? 50mm equiv. FoV or longer preferred.

Time to hit ebay/google again for anywhere I missed so far.
