sulaco Posted December 19, 2016 Share Posted December 19, 2016 (edited) I've often wanted to get a camera attachment of some sort to make a a DIY Polar alignment method and noticed a review of the SharpCap 2.9 Polar alignment function, so I ordered an adapter for a well known brands Polar Camera to fit my HEQ5. I then made a separate adapter on the lathe with a 1/4" x 20 thread for a camera tripod screw that would then fit my ASI120mm and then a Pentax takumar 85mm 1.8 lens with a spacer, Bob's your uncle it works a treat so far. I need to try it again but my alignment was so quick and my PHD2 graph much flatter. Not as compact a package as a purpose built camera but works well with Sharpcap 2.9.
