I purchased a shoe-mounted red dot sight from brando.com.  Once sighted in, it works well in getting my Q1 + DA 60-260mm aligned (1200+mm equivalent at the long end).

Very interesting gadget.  I'm thinking though, is that a good idea to point a laser at a bird's eye, which is where you'd want to focus ?  What is the laser rating ?  Does the instruction manual warnings stipulates not to point at eyes ?
