p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Paid machine tool side project for simple metal polar scope adapter


I have taped and shimmed up my Vixen Polarie polar scope in order to attach it to my Astrotrac sky tracker and have had excellent tracking at relatively long focal lengths (600mm for 3 minutes). My home brew adapter is not too sturdy though. Basically the Astrotrac hole is too big for the Polarie (by less than an inch), and I need a simple metal adapter that will take the Polarie scope snugly.

Anyone know of a machinist tool maker that is interested in a paid side project? I have some photos of a simple metal adapter someone else has made, but I am not able to have it reproduced for me at this time. Thank you!

Thanks. I'm using the vixen Polarie scope. That will not work for it.

I am a machinist and could technically do it but that means having free time. :/ you will need precise measurements or ways to get the parts to who ever you have make this. Would you ship the parts you need an adapter for?
