Dovetail help needed

Hi guys I need help with mounting my guidescope to the top of my ES127mm apo. I purchased the OTA from a member here a few weeks ago and I canít find any info on this dovetail and would love to find a plate that will fit this dovetail. Measurements are 16mm x 4mm x 21mm flare. If anyone could point me in the right direction to fit a 200mm long plate to this that would be awesome! Photos below will show the profile of this dovetail.
Cheers Justin

Hi Justin,
This may be of use to you:

It will convert a 21 mm picatinny gun rail to a standard telescope finder shoe.
