I for one was very grateful for this months group test, Im in the market to buy a reflex type finder for my 80mm refractor .
I really wantede a telrad but there is no way ot will fit my small scope so its going to have to be the burgess I think.. Allthough i am looking at a few rifle ones.. any ideas for something cheapish but solid?

You didn't define cheap-ish, but how does £22 sound? Have a look at the Baader Sky Surfer III Red Dot Finderscope, e.g. http://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/baa ... scope.html. Also includes a selection of mounts.
I've got two and they work very well. However, my application is targeting the alignment stars for my mounts alignment procedure. If you need one for star hopping purposes then a finder like the Telrad has a graduated scale to allow you to move across its field of view by a measured amount.
