  1. Hello, I had a problem observing dimmer stars through my standard Skywatcher red dot finder. This is especially true if I want to use 5x telvue powermate. The minimum setting was too bright,and I had to switch it off and then on again. I decided to mod the little red dot finder. But I knew I had to design something which will be small enough to fit in the original case (which is pretty small) and run off the standard battery 1.5v. So I present to you guys my 'little' project. The pieces are so small that the biggest capacitor I needed to use (220u) had to be downsized , but after some tests it worked out ok. The movie with the finished product and schematics along with eagle files are on my site c4xp.ro So what do you think? I can use any comments and suggestions.
  2. hi and welcome, as a hint: you will need the autoguide package to stay on the same patch of sky, to be able to take long exposures.
  3. Welcome and crystal skies to you

  6. Wow, amazing find.. As a heads up to your heads up: Unity engine uses Java from the system so all who have problems should install latest Java library and then Unity Web Player
