Wanted: Small finder for 4.5" refl. (found one, THANKS JOHN)

I'm putting together a small reflector to send to Uganda for use in a local school. My friend, who has family there, will be taking the scope with him at end of the month. The plan is to introduce the local kids (to Astronomy) by viewing the TRANSIT of VENUS on June 8th. :-)
After that, we'll leave the scope with the school for ongoing night-time viewing.
I have all the parts, but I'm still missing a small finder scope.
I'd like to get a light weight one like the 'MARS Large EYE' finder or the 'Galileo' finder (sold on Apogee's website) See pics below).

A Telrad is too heavy (and large for this OTA) and the traditional optical finders are too hard to use as you approach zenith.
The OTA is only 18" long (it's a Meade DS2114S).
If you have one of these (with base) laying around, please email me with your asking price (including shipping).

as a back up, I'd also be interested in the 'stock' 5x24 finder (with stalk) that comes with the Meade DS2000 series OTA's. If you've replaced yours and have this, please let me know.

Thanks
Bill
