Red dot sight for FZ150

Now that I have a hotshoe, I can have my own red dot sight and start snagging B-I-Fs.

Images here:

It's made of scrap 1/16" and 3/8" Lucite. The only critical part is fitting the plate which enters the hotshoe so it doesn't wobble horizontally. I cut the Lucite a bit wide, and trimmed it to fit snugly with a file.

There was a bit of play in the vertical plane, which I solved by gluing an addiitional piece of 1/16 Lucite to the front of the mount.

Now to find me some birds....
